I don't know if you guys have heard or or tried the iFish app. I downloaded it last year, but didn't really use it too much (being quite familiar with the local lakes and all), but I've been poking around in there lately and it's pretty cool! Not only can you search for lakes and rivers by name or proximity, you can add markers to the lake you're on (mark docks, fishing holes, etc.), keep track of your catches for the year (by species), download iFish magazine, Alberta campground guide, and current fish stocking reports, learn to tie different knots (for the beginners out there, or for some of the oddball knots you may not remember), different cleaning methods for different species, species guides..... the list just goes on!! :lol:

They've also added a forum so peeps can swap information with other fisher-folks. :D Pretty neat stuff. Well worth the $5.00 I paid for it. :rock:

The rope actually was part of the fix. Happened to be that there was a rather big fellow close by. I tied the rope around the bogey & he lifted the boat enough that I was able to pull the bogey back into place.

I was thinking "I shoulda fuckin stayed home"!!! The day started out wrong when The recoil on my kicker broke before I even hooked the boat to the truck. Then, I forgot to put the plug in the boat before I put the boat in the water. In front of a bunch of Peeps, of course! :oops: No matter. 15 mins of bailing then we were ready to set out. Went to connect the fuel lines and realized that I had forgotten to change the fuel lines from my 60 hp Merc to the line for the 40 hp Evinrude that I put back onto the boat. Only 15 minute drive into Camrose to get an Evinrude connector.Fuckin Cop clocked me doin 100 in an 80 zone. $124.00 ticket! :evil: After almost 2 hrs finally got the motor fired up.
Caught 1 small fishy for Hughie (RIP Bro). Trying to get said fishy off the hook and he gave a quick flip, right off the Rapala and back into the water. Somehow in the process I ended up with all 3 trebble hooks stuck deep into my fingers & thumb!
And how was 'your' Fathers Day???

Yup! Going to put chains on the bogies so that they can't tilt quite as far. Replaced my kicker with a 7.5-4 stroke Honda. Should have everything ready to go for next week-end.

Whenever I start feeling down about the fact that the yearly fishing trip isn't happening this year, I'm gonna come back and read this post. :D

I FINALLY went out fishing yesterday for first time since I've been up here. Caught a nice 8lb Chinook salmon. Hooked two others that got away before I could get them close enough.

Looking forward to getting out again to hopefully do even better!
