Well i thought i made this post last weekend in here... but im back on the computer now and i cant find it, i guess i messed up or 4got to hit submit. Anyways, man is it getting cold, the boats carpet was frozen and all slippery, and the sides of the boat and the gas compartment with the batteries and stuff had tons of ice in it. I was reeling in my fishing line on a baitcaster. And the water on the line was freezing so when i reel it in the ice builds up on the hole the line passes thru then falls off oooh:.. it was not so bad when the sun was up but once it started going down my toes were stinging cause it was so cold.. this was last sunday, it seems a little warmer now ( i hope ). Is it bad to take the boat into the water when it freezes ( fiberglass boat )? any tips on how to keep ur carpet from freezing and getting slippery. Also i was wondering where do they sell small generators ( hopefully not real loud ones ). we camp usually when we go catfishing and wake up in the morning and fish some more then go home, because the trolling motor runs out of batteries by the 2nd day. and our spotlights also run out.
