One of those days.....NG
lights out. Naughty words. Replaced the bulbs. Hooked up the battery charger and starting battery was almost completely discharged. Charged the trolling motor battery and then left the starting battery on all night. 5am and rods, cooler to the boat and off we go. Stopped at the 7-11 @ Collier and US41 and filled the truck/boat with gas. Went to put in some gas additive and spilled it on my hands/shirt/shorts. A few more naughty words. while still at the gas station......
My accounting professor (old bass tournament fishing partner) taught me to roll over the big motor before putting it in the water to avoid clogging the ramp. Good advice as I went to bump the big engine and heard the infamous "click". By now, no naughty words, just figured it was not my day to fish. Back to the house, rods/boat put away.
Now looking at getting an AGM starting battery so maybe NEXT weekend the fishing Gods may bless me.
Maybe should have put this on the Boating section instead of fishing reports.
Until the battery is replaced, save some for me!
