Wading for Trout


Big trout are biting! Had a couple of Low Country buddies come do some wade fishing. The stars lined up and the winds died down just enough. All fish were caught on a Vudu Vixen by Egret Baits. Color was white with chartreuse tail.

I've had many encounters with "the tax man." Every time, he's been after my fish and not me. He's taken fish off my stringer and off the end of my line as I was trying to land the fish. I really believe that fish are his first choice by far. If he gets me, it'll be by accident. That's why my stringer is 15' long. I keep his food as far away from my legs as I can.

I was busy...as I cleaned every one of them. We ate fish every day, and I vacuum sealed the rest in meal size portions. We split them up and brought them home to share with family and friends. Folks this far inland don't get much speckled trout...and they're very appreciative when they do.

Unreal the number of trout out there. Congrats, Harold, along with the invites you extend out to others.

I do have a question regarding the trolling motor.

I notice that you have the depth collar slid down towards the foot. It also appears the maybe the black plastic collar or whatever it's called that extends upward from the motor/steering portion is broken somewhat from perhaps coming unlocked while underway with the depth collar at a higher point.

Perhaps my observation is wrong, but mine is broken in the way I mentioned due to having the depth collar up higher and after stowing to move, hit a wave that caused it to unlock slamming the trolling motor down breaking it. Sliding collar down would eliminate that.

Mine still works one it catches but need to get repaired.

Thanks in advance.

NN, my collar is not broken. I just don't twist it around to get it ALL THE WAY down. Where it is on the shaft will prevent if from launching unintendedly. That happened to me the second week I had that motor. I did not heed their warning and I did NOT slide that collar all the way down to the foot of the trolling motor. I was running about 35 mph when I hit some waves which caused a medium jolt to the boat. That was all it took. My trolling motor bounced up and over. I stopped immediately, but the damage had been done. It shattered the shaft from the motor all the way up to the top. FORTUNATELY, the warranty covered it. One time was all it took for me. Now, WHENEVER I move the boat, I always slide the collar down the shaft to prevent another such accident.

Thanks for the reply. Couldn't tell for sure from pic, but seems we have had the same experience with different results. Good deal on them taking care of under warranty. Gotta remember to slide collar down while underway.
