    went to alum creek to do a little fishing this morning.. hoping for a nice calm hassle free fishing day when a boat decides to launch into the lake.. this is the first boat i see put in this year.. so i just stood there and watch.. they pushed, shoved and the boat slides into the lake from its trailer.. 1 guy was holding onto a rope while the other drove his truck up the hill to park.. the next thing i saw was the rope that was tied in front of the boat has become undone.. the guy just kept holding onto the rope and lookin around for some support.. the whole time this thing is goin down, i was just sittin back and chuckle by myself..until i start seeing the boat being blown away towards the main part of the lake, i went over to offer some help..
    i told them both that i can try and cast towards the boat and snag it in.. they both wouldn't believe that i could do it.. so casting i did.. i easily made the cast past the boat but lost the hook up because nothing was stickin up for the hook to grab onto.. after what seems to be about the 20th cast and a few miss-hooked.. i caught onto it and start to bringing in the beast..err boat.. :p not too long after i got the boat owner to snap a pic of me haulin in this beast..just for prove..heh heh..
    i'll get teh pics reduced then post it tonite..

    funny enough.. they proceeds to go on fishing.. went into some skim ice area, i could hear them breaking up the ice pretty good.. after all that ruckus, they decide to leave and went onto the main lake.. :rolleyes:
    it was a great fight pulling that thing in.. the boat was drifting out past the ripple you see in the picture.. took a good 10minutes just to get it out of the wind.. :D
