Not exactly on the dinner unless you stopped by the piggly wiggly on the way home.  Lake Claiborne is a whole different thing than I am used to.  Wide open.  Gonna take some learning to find the catfish.

Catfishtoon post=110548Spent a couple hours on the lake yesterday.  Water was a little clamer this time.  3/4 throttle is right at 21mph.  Full is 23mph.  I have ran about 4 hours on about 1.5 gallons.  Adjusting trim helped alot.  

Best thing is time fishing with my sweetie.


cruising right along... did we catch dinner??

The screw clamps being so close to the top of the transom looks scary.
Without being through bolted, I would not trust that. IMHO.

Well.  I horsed it up on a piece of aluminum tubing and bolted it thru.  I will now fit a piece of at cedar to match the rest and fill in the gap.
