Decided to take my brother fishing this evening so we headed for Lake Shelbyville to get the boat out for only the second time I've had a chance too this year. Everything looked like it was going to be a beautiful night with the full moon and all. That all changed as soon as I backed down the ramp and unloaded the boat. Must have had some bad gas left over in the tank I grabbed for the boat. Motor started up, ran for a second or two and soon after died, then we smelled the aroma of stale gas, when I went to check to see if it was getting fuel. Needless to say now the motor wouldn't fire at all. So after an hour of trying to get the motor started we finally decided to load up, but we still were going to fish whether we had the boat or not. We set up and with my brother now calling me his personal fishing guide minus a boat that ran, we decided to fish off the point, just up from the ramp. This ended up being a great decision. I got skunked, but my brother caught two really nice channels, the first one was somewhere between 8 to 10 lbs. and the second one somewhere around 5 lbs.. We had a blast, even though it started out fairly bad it all turned out really great in the end.
