Fishing season is over - Boat got Schmucked!

Recommended Posts

Gang

My son and some of his friends were headed to Brainerd for a long weekend at a resort. They were stuck in traffic in the Cities, and stopped. A car behind them (and my boat and
the tow vehicle) was also stopped.

A 3rd vehicle plowed in to the 2nd, and 2nd smacked my boat. My son indicates that the
outboard and trolling motor were smacked
real bad, boat was also knocked off the rollers on the trailer, but I don't know how
or to the extent of the "knock". Would have to believe the 2nd vehicle took alot of grill/hood/radiator damage, in addtion to rear end damage. Am guessing there is transom damage too.

No one with my son was hurt ( thankfully) but I don't know about anyone in the other two vehicles.

Glad I didn't have any plans for it this weekend or next.

<Sigh>

Oh Uncle I feel sorry for you. But at least it is September and not June or July. We almost had that happen with a load of horses while traveling through the cities. The only thing that saved us was my husband saw them coming up behind us and the guy next to us also saw it and he pulled over as far as he could and we managed to get over just far enough for them to miss us. But if either my husband or that kind man had not been paying attention we would have really had a mess. Worst part was we also had a friends show horse in there along with ours. That is why I hate driving in the cities. Fargo is bad enough. Hope you or the other guy have good insurance.

Sounds like someone is getting a new boat compliments of someone elses insurance.

I've lived in the cities for 4 years now...you learn to always look out your rear view mirror when traffic comes to a standstill (not much wiggle room when you're pulling a boat!). I have been rear ended once by some one-who-thinks-I-am-silly on a cell phone going 50 mph. (should have put that cell phone someplace where the sun doesn't...never mind...)
If you're visiting the cities - be aware of this - it happens quite often.
I pray it doesn't happen again, especially if family is involved.......

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
