Shake-down cruise!!
« on: April 30, 2018, 06:47:34 PM »
Today was the last day until June 15 to fish the main stem. Haven't had the boat out yet so I went for a shake-down cruise. Hasn't been out since last Thanksgiving.





She started right up after a few squeezes of the gas bulb. What a delight these 4 strokes. Ran like a top for the 3 hours I was out. Trolling motor, anchor winch and sump pump all good.

She's been leaking for the last 4 years but I didn't have to run the pump today...just popped the stopper when I was done and left her drain.

Launched at the Isle of Que. Upstream is the Hummels Wharf power station. The 4 towers on the right are the old coal plant and the 3 smaller towers on the left are the new gas plant.



The RR bridge piers often times hold fish different times of the year.



A little too breezy for fishing but nice day for a ride.



Don't know where the big girls were today but I did find a dozen 11-14 inchers.
