    1st time out this year

    Thank you, I have been having a few issues with it, so I haven't done much fishing yet. I'll get it worked out. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Hard to keep up with the age of the batteries. 8 years is a long time for a battery, you got your monies worth. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Thanks Tubejig, I need to get one just in case. It sure is a pain rolling the batteries. Hey Dada, I was wondering about a cover for that spot. I didn't know they actually made something for it. Fishnfool, you are right, but it's all part of the fun. Thanks you all. I'll try not to fudge any on what I catch while camping.... I'd hate for my nose to get any longer.

    1st time out this year

    Saturday was the first time on the water in maybe 5 months. The old johnson on my Norris Craft blew a piston last year, and I sold it. Been looking for a fish and ski and landed on this one a week ago I mounted the bimini top Saturday morning while wife packed a lunch. Got to the ramp, which was packed, and I backed in and floated it off. Battery dead to starting motor! Got on trolling motor to get it out of every ones way, and it didn't run either, kricky! Not a good start. I charged the batteries the other day and everything seemed fine. The original registration on it expired in 2016, so I knew it would need some attention. I swapped the batteries while my wife parked the truck, and I was ready to fire it up by the time she got back. The evinrude fired up with a little effort. It took it several minutes to get the gas and sea-foam cleaner moving through the carbs, and it started purring along. We spent 4 hours or so running around with the O-Brother sound track playing on the stereo. Wife loves the windshield and top. Going to be spending about 3 days camping on Ft. Loudon or Tellico this coming Thursday. If I get lucky enough to catch anything I'll post about it, if I don't catch anything you won't hear from me. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Finally got on the water...

    I agree. I was out in the canoe and a bass boat slowed to an idle to pass. I waved nicely to him. Then a small runabout came around and slowed also, very polite of him, and I smiled and waved, but crap! the wake from that thing about washed me out. Fun and exciting rollers tho. Fishing sucked anyhow. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  7. I agree. This sucks. Good time for going through camping gear.

    Last Year SUCKED

    Well, at least on my end. Hello I haven't been on here in long while, just lurking now and then. Last year,,, well my Dad had a stroke, and it was last spring since we were out. I guess being in his early 80's, along with his worn out knees, it was a huge struggle to get him from boat to truck after fishing. It took me and a couple other big fellas, who I really appreciated, to get him to the truck. So for anyone who has helped a person in this manner, many thanks to you. Maybe when weather clears, Dad and I can do some bank fishing. I haven't felt like getting out after that. I was getting boat out every couple weeks or so just to keep it running, and last November the 41 year old johnson finally gave up. Piston broke. I sold entire boat and motor. I am now in the market to find another boat. When this rain let's up I'll be hitting the upper end of Cherokee lake. I'll try to contribute any info that I can. I normally crappie fish in mooresburg area. It's good to be almost back in the swing again. Happy Hooking, Roy.

    1987 dolphin flare info.

    That's a good looking boat. I don't know much about mariner outboard. I've got a 78 Norris Craft, that thing is 40 years old, still runs good and dependable. And the best thing about an older boat is, you don't have a huge monthly payment chewing on your back side. I would definitely get the old gas out of there. I've heard when the color in the gel coat fades out, you'll never be able to shine her up. But please keep us posted I am curious. Get out and fish. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Cherokee lake Crappie are still there.

    Uh oh. I better get back out there and get a few. Yeh Dad and I don't pass up any vertical structure especially a bridge. We haven't been out in a couple of week, and I'm getting the shakes. I hate it when life gets in the way of my outdoor activities. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Looking for fellow anglers!

    I always stayed closer to river channels. I don't kitty fish very much anymore, but I always done better in the rivers where they get close to the lake. Norris lake is huge with good water flowing in. I would start close to your home and then expand further down toward the lake. Good luck. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. Dad and I put in at Quarryville ramp this morning with hopes of bagging some nice crappie. While in search of our prey, someone in another boat asked if we wanted a walleye. Wow! I couldn't get that trolling motor to go fast enough. This fine person handed me a nice 24 inch walleye. I almost didn't give him enough time to get his fingers out from its gills. Who ever it was, if you are on here, thank you very much. It's chilling in the refrigerator and will get a nice herbal and olive oil rub and some nice warm charcoal. Thanks again.

    That's awesome what they can do now days. Glad you're doing good. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. Dad and I went out this morning. Put in at Quarryville ramp with a couple of dozen minnows to baptize. Wasn't a slamming morning, but still a good time to be out with Dad. Not a good picture, oh wait you don't see a bridge behind me. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
