Hi all..

Well....76 mile boat ride around the Point to the 38ft hump on the ridge on Saturday. Very nice lake to run on. Unfortunately...only 8 jumbos to show for it. Fished 30-46 ft on the hump lots of bait on the bottom...and about 20 sheephead to use up the minnows with.

Found abundant suspended fish in 70-75 ft trolling back (this would be about 15miles West of the the lighthouse. Probably pics....but no planners or dipseys to put out...and not a sniff on a rigger.

Interesting trip....probably should have burned the additional gas to get to Hastings....but love a new adventure.

We made the trip around on the 27th of Aug. Great day and perfect water conditions for a 2 hr boat ride one way. We fished in 48' of water and came in with 87 perch, ran out of minnows and decided to drag a few lines on the way back with no luck.
The day went perfect until we got back into the Old Cut and then trouble hit us bad. I went into neutral to talk some one and when I shifted to forward I had nothing but a grind noise and also in reverse :0 We had just blown the drive coupling.

Motor out of the boat



Stripped drive coupling.


A special thanks to Randy at Post Marina had me back up and going last Thursday

I sympathize with you 3 boys.... at least you made it in. I blew a drive on the way in from the south beach once....but that happened in Gravelly Bay...very long tow in from there.
