I was fishing Santee Cooper a few years back. I had put in on the south end of Moultree. We fished all day with no luck then moved into the canal around dark. We fished all night and the majority of the next day with lots of luck. Well, it was time to head to the house. We got to the south end of the canal and had to go seven miles across Moultree to the boat ramp. The bad thing is that the wind had picked up and the waves/swells was probably 3-4 feet high. I turned around and went back to one of the resturants in the canal and asked some folks for a ride to my truck. One guy says, "No problem let me get my boat ready." I had a 16 foot ba$$ boat then but he had a 24 foot cabin cruiser. It was a bumpy ride but I made it to my truck then cleaned out my pants before driving back to the canal in my truck. What do you in a situation like that? I am no pro with a boat and I know my limitations. I think I did the right thing. Any suggestions?
