Back in the saddle again.  In the last 3 weeks I have fired 5 and hired 4 replacements.  The three that made it through now understand how serious I am about things being done my way...

After 27 hours, my finger finally decided to start waking up.

We caught 9 in about 30 minutes.  They were blowing shad out of the water.  The biggest one had my shad rap and a shad in his mouth at the same time.

Breaking in the new Dobyns Sierra company rods tomorrow. Fishing with half the lot, mainly power fishing techniques. Reports are still coming in with 100+ bass being caught, but the sizes are not there yet. Let's see how it goes tomorrow.  ~gf ~gf

Eternal Optimism. It's what drives me to fish. Next cast is THE cast that will provide the reason why I am here. Big Bass, Small Bass, No Bass-- Everyday and Every Time out learn something. What worked and what didn't and why. In the end go enough days and then, Today is the day that it will all come together and the Fish Gods will smile.

Not yet.

Only used the motor to run it off and back on the trailer.

Rest of the day I was on the trolling motor.  Used the wind in my favor a lot.

Hits came in spurts, but once I figured out a plan from 12:00-3:00 it was pretty regular every so often.

I culled up several times. Wanted to hit one last stretch before I left and thatís where I got the big girl.

On the water at 8:00 off at 4:00.

Going to take a different approach today, let's just say I got my duckfoot push pole and my flag ready.

Going to give it another shot tomorrow, conditions will be slightly different. Outside temps are going to be significantly warmer, and the wind has shifted. Let's see what I can come up with.  ;)

After 3 days in a row on the dozer plus a 4 hour commute I'm done for the week.  If the feeling comes back in my hands I'm going to sneak out in the morning for a bit

Put all new Fuel Line on the Boat from the Tank to the Filter yesterday. I was changing the Bulb in case that was my problem and found the liner inside the hose had left go.

Bought Lifetime Warranty Coast Guard Approved line from West Marine. Cost more than the Marine Fuel Line from a Auto Parts Place but they only had a 1-year warranty.

Talking with the manager at West Marine about my old line (bought new in 2016) he told me that that style (plastic outer line-inner liner) was banned in 2013 for delaminating issues. I told him I bought it new in 2016 from a Mercury Dealer, and he just smiled and said "then they didn't follow the guidelines. We were instructed to remove and destroy all we had when it was outlawed in 2013".

Might be a small piece got into the injectors or something, Motor didn't run any different with the new line. I will know after the 22nd.

While out I fished for about 3 hours. Put 5 in the boat but no Culls.

What a PITA when the motor is not running properly!!  Good luck on the diagnostic process!

I feel your pain. I put mine back in the water this morning and it's still not right.  I pulled it back out, emptied all the compartments, and took it to Hoppys.  It will be a week before they can look at it.
