    It's been two months since I've been able to go fishing, My day was yesterday, I was excited, Got an early start, fueled the boat, got a little breakfast, Got to Atkins landing went to launch the boat and the motor would not start, I found a stopped up water separator, I started to bypass it, when I pulled the hose I seen water in the gas, all I could do then was to come home, I drained the tank and got about two gallons of water out of it. Put new gas in it from a different station, after the carbs picked up the new gas it started and run perfect. I had noticed when getting gas yesterday the pump was running really slow, I figure they were about out and was pumping from the bottom of there tanks. then to rub salt into the wound, there were reports of really good catches all day long yesterday.
    It just wasnt my day to fish, I hope everyone else that fished did as good as the reports I heard.
