The fishing trip that almost didn't happen. First the weather went south over night with a small craft up until 8am. Second the boat motor started to shake violently at 1500 rpm. Third the depth finder wouldn't boot, just a white screen.
Unfortunately for this fish, I'm stubborn. I stopped the motor and restarted it and after the third time its ran fine for about a 1/4 of a mile. It looked like the motor was going to work about 1/2 the time, so that put us at 2 1/2 strikes instead of 3, fish on! It was a slow day but I got my dinner and my brother also had a keeper that he released.
