We are having many boat inspections out here. If your boat is not kinda clean, plugs pulled, you have a penalty.

They would not want snif my live well. Forgot about some once frozen bait had in there. After a day, ohboy. Have power washed it several times but still has a bit of smell.

They write you a ticket if your boat is not clean...... or do you mean cluttered with stuff laying around that could be considered a safety issue such as a trip and fall overboard hazard?

As far as I know, no mud like on anchor, weeds on trailer, no water in bilge or live well. Do not know of mud lines on hull. They do want you to wipe down hull in prep area.

Invasive weeds and zebra mussels etc. They trying to stop from spreading.

That makes sense.
Good to know they take that stuff seriously.

Yeah I've been watching the weather there as texas is probably my favorite state, probably our next duty station and most likely where we will retire. I love texas just not the summers and those consistent 100 degree days lol other than that whats not to like about texas.

Hope everything goes well on the boat testing/fishing.

Unfortunately it would be ft hood. So I'd be primarily on Stillhouse and belton again with trips to Buchanan as well. However, im retired so I can travel to fish with buddies anytime. We find out next summer for sure
