    While bank fishing last night, I was able to help out a fellow fishermen.A guy pulled up to the boat ramp and backed his truck and boat down the ramp. After about 8 attemps he finally put his boat in the water. While removing his boat from the trailer his truck died. Several attemps to restart failed, he removed the air clearier and poured gas into the carburetor, BAD idea. A large fire then broke out under his hood. After we put out the fire , he tried to restart again by now the battery was dead. Now on the ramp is a boat, trailer and truck locking up the use of 1 ramp. After searching for 30 minutes he produced his AAA card , I called and got him a tow truck.The whole night wasn't a total loss even though he was unable to fish he watched me pull in a 6 pound and a 3 pound channel. All in all not a bad night.

    Way to jump in and help put out the fire, calling AAA and let him watch you catch a couple of fish.

    While I cuss many times when that dang thing rings, I can only wonder how many lives have been saved around the country by the technology.

    Good for you being the Good Samaritan! How many other people just went by or watched all this take place. You've given Cat fisherman a good name!

    Great job assisting a fisherman in need. I have a cell phone but I also don't like them. Too many people driving while talking on them, etc.

    If that guy had been trying to launch jet skis I'd have pushed his truck into the water.



    Nah, I'm just kidding.
