Man my day started off horribly. Heard a racket pulling my boat this morning, thought it was something else (more later). Launched at Alton, motored down to the confluence and anchored over a submerged dike by myself. BAD MOVE! As soon as I figured out how fast the current was rushing by I didn't like it. Fought anchor for an hour trying to free it without swamping boat, finally lost it all, rope included.:angry: Trailered boat to go buy a new anchor, heard noise again and stopped to investigate, trailer tire about to fall off new boat trailer, 2 studs broken, only 2 lug nuts left that were almost ready to fall off. Wheel and hub trashed. Sean at Cook's Marine covered the repair that I had done at Clark Boats. COOL! Spent about $130.00 on new anchor, plus rope, plus chain etc..... finally ready to get some fishing in at 1:30 this afternoon. WHEW! The best day I have ever had fishing! Caught a crapload of fish. I'll sum this up with a photo of my new PB 40lb Blue, followed by the CPR photo. Yep, he's swimming in the river, ready to get bigger for the next person to catch.
