Be careful. I fish in that neighborhood a lot and don't want to find any bodies floating around.
My OFB Joe and I were fishing the upstream point of Hobbs Island last Sunday afternoon when a pretty good little storm blew through. It rained heavily enough thet we lost site if the bank. There was an abrupt 180 degree wind shift as the storm center passed overhead. All this added up to feeling a bit lost for a minute or so until the rain abated enough to find a landmark.
All the bilge pumps worked, and we didn't suceed in doing anything dumb. The fish seem to enjoy this kind of weather.
Keep your boats working well - you never know when you might need that bilge pump or compass.
happy trails - Rob
