    Fishing in the rain AGAIN

    The river is so bad my charter captain canceled my fishing
    Trip.

    Coming down the river. Got a cat fish, but it's not what iam looking for.

    A bad (weather) day of fishing is better than a good day at work.

    Just came back from Delcambre La, the boats are lined up in the bayou where the peelings are washed out from the shrimp shops! People catching big cats and reds! Sunshine and 85°!

    Last weekend was the first weekend since February where it didn't rain on Saturday.

    Guess what that means.....

    You got it!

    Boat Ramp Mayhem!!!!

    We were forecasted to get rain and high winds but it turned out to be a very nice day. The river was a complete and total zoo with the ramp JAMMED full of folks trying to get their boats which had sat all winter started. Can't find their plug... Battery is dead.. Can't find life jackets and kill switch plug.... Flat trailer tires.... Dry rotted fuel hoses... Dry rotted winch line... Stuck straps rusted in place.. And of course No tools with them....

    Come on man - can't you check everything out in the driveway before you hit the water the 1st time of the year. Once you know it runs - it will probably be fine. But the boat ramp isn't the place to find out that your gas tank that sat outside all winter with the cover unscrewed is half full of water and your boat wet exhaust is full of carpenter bees......

    And yes... Ask me how I know about a boat exhaust full of carpenter bees?

    What gets me along with the above.
    The launch is for launching or retrieving boats, it's not
    A parking lot.
    The launch were i get on the river , is a two holer.
    One side is to put your boat in the water, the other side is for boats coming off the water. Big white arrows painted on the blacktop. People can't figure out what the arrows are for.
    The launch HAS a parking lot for at least 100+ trucks and trailers. And a staging area to get you boat ready to launch. There's no reason to pull your boat down to the launch and Stop and park it there and block the launch for
    20 mins wile you screw around getting your boat ready to
    Launch. I really love the ones that have to put there tops up and snap all there side curtains on . I pull down an get in the middle of the two lanes and launch my boat, and don't even use the dock , my wife backs me in , then goes park the truck. i pull up to the end of a dock she steps in
    Were gone fishing.
    Once you pull your rig down into the launch area, the only
    Reason to stop, is to put your vehicle into reverse to back your boat into the water.
    Even if iam by myself, i don't stop . My boat is all unhooked from the trailer , i back it in as soon as it floats,
    I get out grab the rope .pull my boat down the dock out of the way of the next guy .go park my truck .and iam gone
