1st Bass - 2009 4-25-09

I had been waiting for this weekend all week - watchig as the forecasts just kept getting better...planned and prepped gear --etc..
FRI Day 4-24-09 :Flew off the Train adn RAN to the truck..hop in turn the Key..trun the Key -- TURN THE KEY!!!!! Key is stuck ..won't turn..I think I tryed to turn in 2000 times as I looked at my finger I noticed - I had been turning is so hard the the JEEP logo was impressed in my finger...SO disapointed..lost Friday..and got so Angery I punched the steering whell until I couldn't hit it any more - So I smashed with my forearm instead..Cant remember the last time i was this mad..it looked as if the weekend might be shot too....spent all night researching..still trying to fix it..but finally gave in and called the Locksmith..showed @ 11am- done by 11:30am....$200 later..weekend saved.

Grabbed the Yak and was on the water by 1pm..
----------------------------------------------------
-High @ Noon
-low @ 6pm
-wind S @ 5-10 -- then switched @ 2pm to 10-15 W andbuilt to gusty 25 by 6pm.
-Water 52ish
-Air 75ish and beautiful, sunny ,blue sky..as promised.
----------------------------------------------------

so happy I got to the water...all the anger over nothing seemed silly now.. a few other Yakers around - but none fishin...one guy on shore but that;s it..

casted and casted -- clear as gin water..nada..no bait to be seen..lots of turtles and one big Horseshoe.

finally went to a spot that just felt right..2nd cast..202pm.. Fish On -- awesome - this is the earliest I have had a bass..so I took about 20 quick shots measured him and set him go --and he soaked me as he bolted away...thought I would find some frinens but wasn't to be..no other bumps or bites all day..

wind got really bad and back was done by 4:30mpm..went a shore took a nap hoping the wind would die .. but it got worse.

put the yak away and waded in back in 2 5:30pm for an hour but the wind was too much..
doe @ 6:30pm
---------------
Total:
1 Bass 23.5"
o bumps or other hits
---------------
-many baots trailing around town - kayaks on trucks - etc.
- saw a red tailed hawk as a big shadow fell on the water.
- turned out to be a great, great day

Spring recycle for Yak Space---------4-19-09

All of my 10 + yr old artworks are getting an reduction today.

I want my garage back. need space for the Yak and wood parts for the new shed foundation and driveway liner
So out with old and repurpose it for the house..

ironic that it spent all these years in storage and now it will become the storage-- and I have just enough 4x4s to make the foundation..

Spring Tune up ----Part 2--------- 4-4-09

Still trying to get it all together before the big trip to MD..
chilly and WINDY!! 30mph gust to 40..mosty 20mph..
in the 50s but felt cooler..like 40.
overcast.

Impeller changed 4-3-09.

worked on the trailer lights almost all day..
it's been a struggle. ]
-the 3 markers light @ the back rusted off.. wires corroded away as well..( seems like every wire has done that)
-Right side wires shot + bulb out.
-Side fender marker went out 2 seconds after fixing the 3 marker @ the stern..
------------------------------------------------------------------
ran to Aid auto to get bulbs..$2.50 fix- nice..
then to Boaters world --picked up all the side marker lights they had @ $4 per. So I am good for awhile..

Made a home made Aluminium bracket from a NO PArking sign( $.97) folded it in half,drilled through and secured with Glav. bolts + zip ties. - It's solid now. And the Led lights are nice and bright.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

so Glad I made a Checklist, - stilla few more things to do but should hit the water for a sea trial and trailer inspect tomorrow.

-got the DF -GPS hooked up--
-Reg Sickers on too
-cleaned up some rods and new yellow 30lb PP on 2 reels..

Part 3 to come...
