After a wierd awaking not remembering much of the previous night I managaed to get it together and without a phone I thought of 3 places to stop to find someone to go fish. Luckily I found someone first stop. So we took my pup and MY NEW BOAT out to dexter today to see what we could trick into the boat. Boat doesn't leak a drop and the electric it came with works great. I forgot how bad it was sitting on life jackets and holding rods but oh well I have done it before I can do it again until I get it going again. Weather was nice but a bit windy at times. I decided not to go to lookout because of the wind we have been having for the last few days. Water temp was... I don't know I left the fish finder on the other boat. The was a handful of boats out fishing and a few of them catching fish. Also I seen a ski boat out and someone took there sled out to do some sun tanning. I got a bit too much sun and so did my buddy. Kiska had fun. Boat has so much more room in it and I didn't loose andy speed going to a slightly heavier hull. Also cuts brodies better and was fun trying to get it to scoop water over the sides. Speaking of the sides WOW makes so much difference with the hight sides. Harder to get you hands in the water and couldn't belive how much freeboard I had. Also it was extremely stable cutting across the chop. I like it. No to customize. We managed to get several bites but only half as many fish to the boat. Got 2 small chinooks and 1 planter rainbow. My cousin thanked me as i left his driveway after dropping of the fish for him to eat. Last year I never got a single chinook but heard there were "kokes" in dexter. So far this year I would say almost half the fish I have got were nooks. Hopefully the trout fishing picks up like it was last year or I won't be wasting much time on Dexter. Weather was nice and it was windy only most the day. I did spend a bit of time playing around with the new boat and the electric motor so maybe thats why we didn't get as much fish as I thought we would. Any ways here are some pics of my adventure. Oh and my buddy caught about 100 yards of someones line. No lure on either end though.
