Wouldn't want to run into this

We were trolling off Marathon Monday in about 110 feet of water and nearly ran into this! An entire tree with just the trunk exposed, it went straight down about 40 or 50 feet. Encrusted with barnacles but surprisingly held nothing worth while.
Couldn't see it cause of the chop, missed it by only a couple feet.

    Yep, that could've been ugly. We once ran over a submerged log, luckily no permanent damage. Surprised it didn't hold any fish.

    Keeping busy while away from Florida

    And that would be why I very very rarely plane off at night, just not worth it...

    Likewise. I cringe when I see people running at night. Especially in the ICW. I just hope who ever is running, doesn't run into me at night with my family on board. Aayyyayie

    Ran over a log one day also, could not see it in the chop, limped home to a $1400 shaft and prop bill
