    Default Lake Monroe 4-13-19

    I finally got the yacht out on the water today. My fishing buddy canceled out so it was just Sophie and me. Darn it was cool (40*) , so I had to wear some long johns to take the chill off. We were launched by 8:00am and my boat was returned to me about 15 minutes later. I told Sophie to snap the rope to the front of the boat. She must have misunderstood because the rope was only attached to the truck and trailer. She a great dog but sometimes..... Anyway, luckily a few gentlemen showed up at the ramp. After they quit laughing, they took me to my boat. I'm pretty sure they were continuing to laugh after they left.

    So FINALLY, we got underway. We only went maybe a half mile south of the ramp. I knew there should be some bushes there under 10-15 FOW. The lake is still 10.5' high. I got my rods together and got the minnows down about 12'. I saw rocks and trees on the fishfinder, so I figured this was a good area. I ended up catching around a dozen sub-dink size crappie and one itty bitty bluegill that had the minnow in his mouth somehow. The temp of the water was around 51* going up to 54* in some areas.

    So it wasn't a real productive day but it was more of a shakedown cruise. We are taking my hairy daughter and his furry son down to Reelfoot in two weeks. So I think everything is good, IF Sophie follows instructions.

    Also, PLEASE don't laugh too much if you ever run into me!

    Glad you got out and I did that once. Now I just leave enough winch strap still hooked to boat as I don’t trust myself with a rope again. Water temp on Monroe needs to come up but I don’t think this entire week will help us much.

    I don't take take the winch strap off until I'm almost to the water. I was having trouble taking it off and I just spaced the rope. I did it with the other boat once but the water was only waist deep.

    Thanks for bringing laughter to me this sunday morning. None of us have ever made any mistakes like that ! I enjoyed your story telling and I know how healthy it is to be able to laugh at one's self. The pictures were classics. As for putting the blame on poor Sophie, I've tried that at my house.... and that darn dog of mine has flatulence like you wouldn't believe . I don't think the wife buys it, tho.

    I'm glad that my forgetful Sophie brought some laughter into your home down at Gnawbone. I'm gonna have to try one of those sandwiches some time. I've been through that megalopolis many many times.

    I do think my Father blamed their dog Sam many times too. It's normal.

    We are staying at Boyette's from 4-26 thru 4-30. If you see us us, just give out a BIG laugh. You know what the boat looks like, but will probably have the bright blue bimini top on so the hairy kids don't get too hot.
