LMAO. I would imagine the brakes went out.... Or a serious miscalculation.

My guess is that it was a busy ramp and he was having trouble backing it in. Everyone was getting upset with him, so he thought he'd try it this way!!LOL

As you can see by the picture the ropes tied to the back of the trialer are attached to another trailer. Ever try backing 2 trailers up, not easy. Its amazing what you can do with a

James Bond truck, but the guy did the fatal mistake of leaving the windows open.

You know, I joked when I pulled up to a boat ramp that's at the end of a road and they put a full stop sign near the waters edge. Perhaps there are actually people in this world that need it...

[sarcasm]To be fair it looks to be a tricky launch ramp.[/sarcasm]

I like the sheriff boat next to the dock.

Last week at Prescott saw a guy launch his boat and as he was pulling the trailer out ripped his front fender on the dock by turning too soon.

This is just an observation, but I've always had better luck by backing the boat into the water instead of going forward. It just always seems to have turned out better.

Maybe that's just me.

He has filed a law suit against the truck and boat companies for failure to provide proper launching instructions. Also named in the lawsuit is the launch owner for not posting warning signs. The guy will come out of this will millions. laughlaugh

he may have been trying to figure out just how far exactly he would need to back his boat for it to float off the trailer crazy Great monday humor though

The sad part of it is, somewhere there is a schmuck attorney that would take this case, and fight for this bone head.

I saw a bumper sticker once that said “Stupid Should Hurt”

    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.
