Back in action!

August 6, 2017

August 5, 2017

August 3rd finally arrived and so I got my boat in to Hannay’s who installed a new power pack. Now I’m back in action with more than a trolling motor.  Well, back in action, but not up to full power.  Seems as if I need an engine re-build or new(er) motor due to a compression problem in one of the cylinders.   There is always something.  Something that always requires a lot of money.  I will have to take it easy and nurse the motor through the last couple months of the year, which shouldn’t be a problem as most of the water I fish is relatively small. Then the search will start for a different motor as I can’t justify the expense of rebuilding a 27 year old motor.

Cool, unsettled, and with a full moon rising, I headed to Lake Waconia with one of my daughters.  The goal was to catch a musky and hit DQ on our way home.   Good motivational thought.  No musky.  Therefore, no DQ.

Did catch several bass on a magnum sized Heddon Tadpolly and one pike on a white spinner/twister combo.
