  • went fishing last night

    No… I really did. Here’s the story:

    So leave work around 5 to put the boat in for the brad paisley/blake Shelton concert at riverbend (which was awesome btw). People show up, and we head off to do a little riding before the concert. Roommate (craftless) finally figures out how to blow into the flats… so we’re all having a good time watching him trying to land it. And then it happens:

    As I’m pulling around to pick him up, glance ahead of us, don’t see anything. Look back, put the boat in idle and what washes to the surface from the prop wash… a fish! Kinda laughed about it at first and just continued riding. Then I’m wondering today… how often to people hit fish with their props?

    Gat gum fish rite der gunna be dinnar!!!!

                  Was out on my neighbor's super air nautique last year and he was wakeboarding. The boat scared about a 2 ft carp out of the water. It jumped up and hit him right in the shoulder/chest and knocked him down.

                    We used to run over Mud Hens on Big Bear Lake with our ski. Boat was out of the no wake buoy, we would ski in and thump them on the head. Feel bad now, but back then it was a lot of fun. Feathers on the leg hair.....

                      On Lake Travis several years ago, I saw, I kid you not, probably about a 6 foot snake swimming across this cove that we ride in.

                      Soooo.....what did I do? I drove directly at that sucker and chopped it up to pieces. You could literally feel the prop hit the snake. This was on our old Malibu so no MC props were injured during the execution of this! hah

                        Holy lick. That would be a little concerning to say the least.

                          I had a mullet jump in the boat while we were going about 25 mph. Scared the snot out of my 3 year old.

                            I was riding an old school air chair like 6 years ago when I was landing my wake roll I felt the ski stall out like I hit something. My buddy said there is a fish behind you. It was a large mouth bass that was like 7 or 8 lbs and like 20" long. Gotta pic somewhere.

                              A mullet? Was it Keith Stone?
