Two college girls towing two jet ski's for the first time , pull down the ramp and tried very hard to figure out how they were going to get the ski's off , I told them to back up the ramp and turn around , the trailer needs to go in the water first !!   True story !!

The other day I sat down to tie on a spinnerbait, I put a trailer hook on and I tossed it over the side of the boat. Unfortunately I missed the important step of tying the lure on the line.

That happened to me, but with a 25$ sinking swimbait. :cry4:

Ive seen a guy just backing up the trailer down the ramp and its pretty slick on the ramp with the slime and stuff on the ramp. He walked down with his buddy to unstrap the boat, once the driver got to the bottom of the ramp, he slipped and fell and scraped his elbow pretty bad. I couldnt stop laughing.

Pulled up to the boat ramp seen a large group of people standing on the dock looking at the water I walked up to see what was going on and the only thing I seen was a car radio antenna sticking out of the water. It seems an older gentleman forgot to put the plug in the boat and the weight of the sinking boat pulled his older model station wagon down the ramp and into the water that's right boat, motor, trailer and car under water. The local paper even posted a picture of the antenna sticking out of the water.

Never ceases to amaze me , but, every year some fisherman have to fish the last ice that is not yet melted in the spring.......Invariably some body pushes his luck too far and their truck sinks through the weak ice and sinks to the bottom of the lake......Not hardly worth it to get the last panfish supper....A local barber did just that with his brand spankin new Ford pickup, my oh my!

These are the reasons i go to the lake very early(before others get there), and leave very late(after most leave)... I have backed up and launched too many boats that did not belong to me because people bought a truck instead of a SUV and don't know how to use their mirrors...

I didn't fully witness it but heard all of it - my parents and grandmother and myself were cat fishing one day when I heard everyone scrambling down the bank from me. My grandmother telling my dad don't move, let me get the net. My dad had caught a monster cat apparently and it was right on the bank, he moved his pole and the hook popped out - fish still laying there, he reaches down to get it and fish flops in water. I hear him yell, my fish, then I hear a big splash! My dad jumped in after that fish! He said it was the biggest one he'd ever seen!

I'm with the other people on setting the hook badly. I set the hook on a carp when I was 8 or 9. Fell in the water. Then reeled it in while in the water put the fish on the dock then got out.

Knowing myself, when I get my boat I'll probably be one of those dummies.

I have watch guys including myself, back the boat in the water with the  rope untied from the boat to the trailer.  Nothing like watching the boat float off on its own to points unknown.

I did that once, had to go for a swim

Well, this is kinda funny and kinda not...........

 

But, one summer (mid-July) morning I took out a little john boat onto Caddo lake.  If you don't know Caddo, it is on the TX/LA border.  The TX side is a huge maze of cypress sloughs draped with spanish moss.  There is no visibility, and it is VERY easy to get lost.  I knew the water pretty well, and even then, I did not stray too far outside what I was very familiar with.  Well, there is this one hole I knew well and had caught some good fish out of.  I almost always went there to start.  It was about a 30 minute drive through some of the maze to get there.  Well, I came around a corner in a channel and found two very bedraggled individuals in a boat similar to mine waving me down.  Turns out they went out the previous morning fishing (with zebcos and nightcrawlers) and managed to get lost in the maze running out the battery on their trolling motor.  They were too scared of gators and snakes to get out and swim/walk.  In the heat of the afternoon, they polished off all their water and made the decision at some point to drink the lake water.  Bad call.  During the night both of their bowels had cut loose.  They reeked, I mean I could smell it before I got 20 feet from the boat.  And, on top of that, both of them had mosquito bites on every piece of exposed skin.  I am talking hundreds of bites.  I loaded them up and took them over to the state park.  Then I went back and towed the boat back.

 

Honestly, it is a good thing I came on them because between their rear end discharge problems, no potable water, and the heat, I am not sure how long they would have lasted.

My cousin and I ran out of gas on the boat ramp in the middle of the mountains. We had to walk all over to find some gas, and our truck just sat there blocking everyone from loading their boat.

Sitting at a boat launch in Florida on a gorgeous day in the evening watched about twenty successful retrieves. Then this one guy tries pulling an almost 40 ft boat out with his f150 when the ramp was soaked. So a guy in his Silverado offers to pull both the f150 and boat out of the water and he too gets pulled back by the weight of the boat and slippery algae ramp. So finally a full size dodge pulls them all out and is smart enough to hook up with enough room between the Chevy and the wet cement so he actually started out where it was nice and dry... Now id only the Chevy had thought of that. I'm a ford man and it was a sad day for me. But hopefully that guy went out and got a 250-350-450... Anything but a 150 for that monster of an ocean boat. Just total ignorance. The best part was the guy in the dodges wife took 5000 pictures so you know that guys still bragging about his dodge 10 years later.

I watched a young teenager use boats as an obstacle course at a marina once. His fun ended when he got his foot caught in sailboat rigging and tried to jump to another boat... Only to have the rope go tight and leave him going face-first into the side of the next boat.

Was at a club tournament and a guy in the club was pulling his 2012 ranger out of the water and I guess his son didn't drive it up on to the trailer enough and he proceeded to drop the boat on the ramp half in the water half out. It was painful to watch him slide it back in and drive it on the trailer again.

The strangest launch that I watched was a guy with a runabout outdrive back rig down, unhook the trailer and push the boat attached to the trailer into the water and park the car. He returned, the family got into the boat via the trailer tongue, the guy started up the engine back up with the trailer still attached and motored away. I didn't see them return and have no idea what happened to them.

 

 

My mind is completely blown.

I was fishing on Mille Lacs. It was clam in the morning and by the end of the day there were huge rolling waves and there was a little lund walleye boat out there and a little kid was in the seat on the deck and they were clipping right along and every time the boat hit a big wave the kid would hang onto the seat but his butt would be about two feet off the seat! And after about five waves he got a little too much air and he ran into seat by his dad.

Thinking back on this it was a very scary moment at first but turned out to be hilarious. Was fishing a local electric only lake, nobody else on the water that I could see. All the sudden I hear yelling and turn around to see this GIANT white cloud, just pure white 100 yards behind me in the water. Had no clue what was happening. About 30 seconds later it cleared and there was a little jon boat with two guys in it. Turned out one of the guys wires had shorted and started a small fire and the guy emptied the entire fire extinguisher just spraying it everywhere. They electrical taped it up and kept on going, white clothes and all.

The funniest was when I was by a ramp where we were entering the river to wade around a local area and there was a guy just leaving saying watch out the ramps slippery. Well my buddy being my buddy tells me I bet its not slippery, and right as he finished that he slipped and landed on his butt then slid down a few feet to the water as I walk around and avoid the ramp all together.
