Brokeback boatramp

Got down and dusted off the old steelhead rods today. With the rain we have been having, the choices for rivers was a bit limited. We did an old favorite, one I haven't been to in a long time. We floated farther than I have in the past, hoping to find the boat ramp before we went too far.

We found the "boat ramp". That has to be the worst ramp I have pulled my boat out of. It slopes down in pure mud, than there is a shear drop off to the water. We had to winch the boat up onto the mud, before we could pull it onto the trailer. NICE!

And on top of that, we broke off the only fish we had on for the day.

Where are my motorcycle parts!!!!!!!!!

Holy crap! That thing is a legit boat ramp? Looks like some place someone accidentally ran off the road while drunk or something! All that nasty mud...what a shitty day!

At least you can say you experienced it, right?

LOL, I would have a lot of days like that if I admitted it.

That's how they build boat ramps on the Oregon Coast! I saw Zaq damn near "experience" the river while trying to walk up that "ramp".

HEHE, that mud was slick! I stepped out of the river and promptly "skied" right back into it. Thank God that boat was there for me to hold on to, I would have ended up in tidewater with the crabs.

Looks like the Trask...Did really well there last January...about mid month...fag-draggin eggs...brought 11 to the boat...all native, but one snake hatchery.

How is the bike looking?

Sorry about your dog, bro.

Wife is about to lose one of her cats and I am working very hard on my "sad" face.

Have her ask her family. She has a bunch of kids I am sure she would love you to look after while your here.

I thought so, in fact nobody would notice I'm there if there's a bunch of kids involved... I always seem to fit in nicely around kids, I don't know perhaps it's because I'm still on their level!!
