    Fish per hour --- I went 1 to 5.

    Ratman, you logged some serious time, what's the final tally??

    The Cuz Craft over the last two outings is

    3 to 20 :embarassed:

    Yup thats Three Fish for 20 hours of soaked baits. :roll_eyes:

    Yesterday we had 8 rods soaking and managed Punkins rat, and one lost fish halfway to the boat.

    So does that mean we are 3.5 to 20 ?:smile2:

    Holy crap! I don't want to think about it!! :angry::angry::angry:

    Let me tell ya something...these past two weeks of fishing, for a $50 gift card and major bragging right :wink:, have been very costly! The first trip out I lost my brand new $300 stainless steel prop to the depths of the Mississippi! didn't hit a thing either, best I can tell, the washer that between the castle cut and the prop, broke, therefore allowing the prop to simply fall off! Didn't log much fishing time that day! :angry:

    Second day, this last sunday, spent about 6 hours.
    Third day, a good 8 hours with 2 dinks
    Fourth day, 8 hours, freezing cold 1 dink
    Fifth day, lost an $80 Surge Elite, $86 dollar Abu Garcia 7000i spooled with approximately 300 yards of 80lb powerpro $30

    So, those three fish, with a total combined weight of around 17 pounds :angry:, have cost me close to $500 bones, not to mention about $50 dollars in gas and oil! :angry:

    My wife is suggesting I call it quits for a while.....I think she maybe on to something!:embarassed:

    I hate to say it but I agree :angry: We have had the worst luck and I still can't feel the little finger on my right hand.

    No one can say I didn't try, that's for damn sure! I covered alot of water, on two rivers for cryin' out loud! Just couldn't make it happen....Oh well, I guess I was due for a good skunkin', especially after the summer I had!!:smile2::smile2:

    Did you ever find the fish? Or did you just not find biting fish?

    I had a hard time finding fish, the fish I did find I believe were asains with a few small catfish under them. I never did find a big school of fish that I thought to be cats. I just don't think the cats are in our stretches of river right now for some reason....I had a hellova time finding anything.

    Rat, you must be bad luck or something. I think the last time I went fishing with you, my truck got broken into, my girlfriend dumped me, and my transmission blew up within 24 hrs.:eek:oooh: LoL! Just kidding, buddy. :smile2:This isn't the first time a rod has flew in the water on the Cuz craft though. That sucks for sure!:wink:
