    Angry Memorial day blowout

    Well, at times even the best of plans go awry. My son and I were all fired up to fish the S.A.L.T. tourney and but things went south. Got ready to launch, turned the key, nothing. I had charged all the batteries the day before and got it all checked out. Checked everything then decided to take it to the shop. Jugger and I went and had breakfast. By then the wind was blowing at a pretty good clip. Found that the starter solenoid had gone bad. Told them to keep it so we headed to the bank. When we got back to Sabine it was whitecapping, bigtime. Told the Jugger, "Well son, looks like the good Lord was looking over us." It could've cranked at the launch but then we would have got caught in some pretty rough water. Anyway, we fished the bank but only managed a couple of hardheads then headed home to bbq some ribs for my wife's people that were visiting. But all was not lost. Jugger won a $100 walmart gas card and I got a marine compass as door prizes, plus the t-shirts. I will report whether we have a good day or a not so good day. Even forgot my camera. But hey, we were out there. Keep 'em tight, and God bless

    Sounds like you made the most of a tough day, congrats on the door prizes
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    You must be living right! The Lord was looking over both of you. Heck ya'll still got to fish together, won prizes and ended the day eating BB with family. What more could a person want. Thanks for sharing.
