Charters and shorts

Today, I was out in my super awesome tin boat full of holes and rotten crab legs. It was glass, 25 when I left, drove thru 23, I said #^&#^&#^&#^& this better be good. And then I had to start my '95 Johnson pull start. Pull, pull, pull, choke pull, pull, pull, now I'm pulling off the first layer. Pull, nope gloves suck too at this point. Pull, nothing, buddy is on shore like is this gonna happen. (Ok, don't look at him again til this turns over). Pull, nothing #^&#^&#^&#^&. Should have got a 4 stroke. Pull, nothing next layer. Pull, nothing. Eether. 2 seconds, pull, vroom, ckkkkkkkkk.

The #^&#^&#^&#^&ing tog are waiting! Pull, pull pull, nothing. Eether again and she turns over and pours sweet, sweet white smoke into the early morning air with the cover off so it's extra loud. And by the time I smell like a chainsaw, it's time to go.

So later in the day, we anchor my terrible cry for a "boat" on a likely piece. Without GPS ... Just wanted to put that out there. And within 15 minutes, a happy little CC pulls up and anchors over the top of my anchor.

It was "ok" I mean we could have had drinks and such but the boat hulls honestly kept a fair distance apart to where we both hit different structure and fish.

What got me was the fare says hey Capt, it's 15.5" (legal is 16)

Cap replies "close enough".

In the box it goes and so did the next 4, same duration we released 10, 12, shorts.

Bottom line is I don't care if it's one fish. I don't care what species, don't be that guy
