And how much worse could it have went? Woke up early and was at the lake at about 7:30. Put in at Buckhill and found a few bait balls and on the second throw I see a black rope flying through the air as it came off my wrist. So decided to go up the lake and hit the marina's that i know of and how to get to. Well low and behold nothing is open. So head back down the lake to the launch to load up the boat and go get a net. Get up to the car and there is about 15 buzzards sitting on it and crapping all over it. Then notice the rubber part of my windshield wipers are gone. I guess buzzard's love them. Load the boat up and pull out and the ring for the winch breaks and the boat lands on the concrete. Luckily the motor kicked up and no damage was noted to the boat or the motor. On the way to Lugoff Bait and Tackle I see an orange flash in my rearview. Bye bye life jacket. Get to the bait store and of course no nets or frozen bait. So I buy a dozen large shiners. Back to the lake and finally start fishing. Catch a dink right by the dam. Move up the lake and get all 4 rods snagged in the same place. Move again and managed another dink. By this time my 8 year old daughter is figeting like no other so its time to go. Managed to get the boat out of the water safely and made it home without another incident. I hope things go better next time cause this was quite the headache for 2 dinks. Oh and cinder block anchors don't work for s*** in the wind. I guess i need to shell out the cash and get real anchors.
