the day started off in the usual manner,with toad coming to the house and us getting the boat loaded and hitched up to lil' red. the rest of the day was a more or less,typical day on the water for the terrible twosome,with some of the typical misadventures,along with fun and fair fishing. the misadventures began when i hit the key,and the trusty mariner refused to come to life,which continued to be the case throughout the day luckily,she doesn't take much coaxing with the rope. we hit a couple of our regular spots,which we found to be more congested than with boats than usual.no problem,cause the fish weren't too cooperative anyway. at the second spot,we were drifting,while trying to not interfere with others,when up the lake comes a couple,flatlining(with looong lines).they proceed around us in a circle,and suddenly i think i have a fish on.surprise!!the trollers had caught my line,which couldn't have been out more than 15-20 feet from my boat when they came back in front of us,i managed to flip my line i=off his,only to discover he was also tangled with toad,lol. we proceed to pull alongside while the guy tries to undo the mess to no avail.finally he asks toad "did you make this harness?" after informing him that he indeed did make it,the guy than asks "do you mind if i cut it?"(the harness,not the line),to which toad politely responds "i'd rather you not" ,lol.after a bit more work the guy(not really wanting to)decides it might be best to cut his own superbraid.good thinking guy. well,that was ourfirst hint to try another of my favorite spots,which was desserted. when we arrived,i immedis=ately put two eyes in the both,on consecutive casts.we then proceeded to troll a small area,by which time we had the company of a few more boats.guess i should have done an underwater release on the blind side of the boat,lol.though the others were courteous,another couple saw us trolling back and forth about 20 feet from the bank,and made a beeline in our direction.as i was making my turn for another pass,they pulled right up to the bank.we just continued our routine,and they moved before i made another pass.glad they didn't park in my path,as i told toad he made end up in their boat when i unwittingly rammed them well,the day had it's moments,with a few good laughs,and after catching 12-15 eyes on that spot,we decided to get out of the sun and load the boat. fortunately,i don't have any "ramp stories" to add.
