OH NO I DIDN't

Recommended Posts

loaded up my poles and small aluminum boat got three bait boxes I wanted, drove about 5 miles to one of my old farm ponds,about 3 acres. unloaded the boat ,loaded up all my gear pushed the boat in the water. and man I could just feel it this was gonna be the  night. then I realized OH NO! I forgot my oars:huh: what now? didn't want to drive all the way back home and back. that wouldn't leave any time to fish :wasted:. then I thought, use them little bait boxes for oars!:bad-idea-014:.it worked tho difficult . I managed four in the boat, the biggest about 3lb. not the night I thought  but it beat sitting on the couch.:stupid:

LOL. I can relate, in a way. For me it was two trips

getting unloaded (kayak) realizing I forgot my PFD.

Call to my wife, 15-20 min later, I'm good to go. 

After all, I've got boys with driving permits that need

practice!!

 

That said, I've forgotten my paddle before, but I 

went w/o it anyway since I'm motorized. Not a 

common thing, mind you. I always have something

to paddle with in case my motor fails!

Forgot my kayak paddle once after driving 30 minutes to a sweet looking new spot. I loaded back up, drove home, went back to bed. Some days it's just not meant to be.

At least you got to fish.

One day not long ago, I came back from night long hour work, set up to go fishing at lake Perris. Spent 30 mins tried to hook up the trailer down on my knee and my back to fix the malfunction hitch. Drove off half way and darn I forgot something very important, turn back home to get that stuff and back to lake Perris. And you wouldn't believe what happened next, the lake was close for algae bloom treatment. There goes my hours spent for nothing.

I took my Dad fishing last summer on the Youghiogheny River. I loaded the canoe, rods, the electronics, the vests, the tackle, the lunch, and pretty much everything else. He needed to bring, a fishing license and the oars. Guess what he forgot.....

 

I ended up running out to walmart and getting a spare set of oars, and he did some bird watching. We ended up catching one red horse the entire day.

We had to paddle with the 3700 boxes one time when the boat ran out of gas. We were in such a hurry that no one bothered to fill the tank.

LOL! At least you caught something. It would have been a disappointment to be rowing around with baitboxes without anything to show for it!!!

Visiting my family last week and borrowed their canoe to fish a small lake and couldn't find the paddles so a shovel got the nod. Worked pretty good.

Over the years I have left behind almost everything inportant.  Bag with baits paddle pfd.  The further I go the more I double check.
