Love it!!!! And fish biting is a bonus, but doesn't much matter from that picture. Hands locked behind your head and not even caring if a fish stole the bait. Excellent picture...Green Bay I presume?!

Nice. Glad that was not your boat I saw on the news getting crushed and sunk by that ship passing through the north lift bridge. Ship smashed it up against the dock sideways and overturned it as it also brushed its way past the protective guides under the bridge. Watching made my Stomach turn!

Actual temp was in the low 80's with humidity around 72. That's why I was on the water.
Jeans because I didn't want to offend anyone at the launch ramp.
Socks because I didn't want to attract the turkey buzzards thinking there was dead meat around.
Never was a "shorts" and sandals person.

Lucky you can use it, our area river's and lake's boat ramps are closed and most are no wake or closed to boating due to flooding. Northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. We got over 4-5 inches of rain several times in a couple of days. I guess tourist income will grind to a halt until,the waters slowly go down.

First, do no harm!
It's a lot easier to buy a boat than sell a boat.(Stole this from a member!)
All that work and hardware store mailbox letters for the hull? Tsk tsk..

:laugh: 2# invisible. This ain't the ocean. Just going for smaller walleyes with a crawler. Might as well stayed home as far as the fishing goes but the water time is priceless.

2 weeks back...saw a nice tin classic Chrestliner with nice 50's Johnson and also caught a fair smallmouth. Same place I caught a 12" perch and some 10" Crappie. All fair size for ice country. Released Bass and ate the rest. The Wisconsin River is always surprising me. Real Wild Rice Growing in the background. Someone owns the rights, so it is never harvested...except by birds. Watch Bald eagles all day.

My boat but not me in the boat. I am not as talented. We had a work outing so I got to bring my own boat.

Is that guy playing a mandolin on your boat?

Great pics guys. Makes me want to skip work and go to the lake.

Now that is cooling off in Glassic style! Nice. this picture represents days gone by using glassics. The ole "prop" tree some props still good... the one in my hand was a friends. I asked if I could have it for the tree as it was the worst I ever saw. He was kneeling on his seat to see over the deck of his 70's 17 footer with a 302 I/O while under fast idle. He didn't know a very steep structure plateau was ahead. When the lower unit bumped into it, it threw his weight forward forcing him into a wide open throttle for a few seconds. He was driving a rototiller. With no spare prop, he could only barely move forward fighting the wind at 3/4 throttle. Half a tank of gas gone and one crazy prop story. He bought a lake map and new prop.

That's crazy, you know the only thing propelling him forward was the thru hub exhaust. He had a jet and didn't know it.
