well after two years of dry dock and 0 catfish i finally scrounged up the money to get the CATillac back on the lake. the head gasket i fixed last season for $12. this spring i got the trailer renewed and the boat remewed. then put the new impellor in it. it lasted two hrs. so i bought a new housing. thats what it needed. it was loosing prime. it was $106.:angry: and another impellor. so i hit the water. first trip was a scouting and boat trial trip. i didnt catch any fish. second trip was cut short due to storms. didnt catch any. cousin caught a 3 lber. but the next trip i boated these 6 nice eaters. then took the kids fishing and got 3 more and and 4 nice ones the next trip. man its good to be back out again.
