I was also able to release this old girl back. Had to get in the water a little and get the water going thru her gills but after about 20min she was able to swim ...more off!!! That's the best part, knowing that next year she will be bugger giving me a chance to get her again. She was the talk of the lake and a lot of people could not believe I put her back!!! Just one of gods creators to catch and release!!!!
That good. I have put together 2 boats one was a 1957 star flight that I transferred into a fishing rig. Second one was a old ebbtide that I redid all the carpet ...more and fixed a couple of bad fiber glass areas.
Ya been at the lakes and a lot of it is already open then it's frozen then it's frozen again. Since it's getting it normal maintenance for the year ...more end I'm fishing from the bank with wax worms when the lake is open in areas
