Every time I get stuck in a rut in the politics session, I sell whatever part of my soul I have to, and go on a kick ass fishing trip.
So I can get out of the rut and produce content, it's just what I do. This week was rough, I don't know all the good Montana spots during the pre runoff stuff we have. Right now Missoula seems like the place to be. But money is tight and I don't like to drive to far when I can't buy my way out of car trouble. Today would have been a good day to fish but I worked hard all day putting a super stealthy flooring system in an aluminum drift boat. I couldn't afford diamond plate, but I think my set up is just as light and dampens sound really well. Plus I still have a 24" X 24" area in the stern that I am going to put a square of .125 aluminum diamond plate on, for coolers. Now I have to clean up a 4 horse Evinrude, I have to fix the rope start, which I am dreading. Eventually when I get some cash, I am going to run a 36 volt Minn Kota Trolling motor set up with 2 marine batteries stowed in the bow. The power heads on Minn Kotas are easy to reverse so the boat will just hang in the current. I would just run the boat upstream stern first and then drop down and hover on spots. You can run that shit all day,
I will anchor it in the current at the river mouth tomorrow morning to see if I accidentally drilled a sheet metal screw through the hull. Should be some Lakers, Bulls and Native Cutts there...
