Well,If it were NOT for BAD luck,de Mandevillian would have NO luck but at least did drop a few nice sac a lait and nice perch on ice this am!!Have tons of issues,mostly mechanical in nature,starting with powertrim on ole SouthFork and just yesterday,CCAguns and I were working on deer lease,took break and I went back around 5:00 pm and was about done bush hogging the main road in front of his spot and noticed steering on ole Kubota(weak link on these tractors)had gone completely out,was NOT able to steer in either direction and I had replaced steering box about 8 years ago,now needs yet another steering box and top it off,broke well over a mile from where I parked my older son's truck!!!Just what I needed-today's trip was a decent one,starting fairly early launching at my favorite T-Funky spot,Three Rivers Rd Launch and chatted with a couple launching pond hopper and they were commenting on the number of dead frogs at the launch-I checked and told em these frogs did NOT die from poisoning-they had their back legs removed,hint,hint-I might need to go frogging out there pronto-BIG frogs most likely with HUGE legs!!!Not long after launching one of my newer Chapman pirogues,saw a gent headed towards my FISH MAGNET and I was not certain who he was at the time(turns out he and Tony Taylor were fishing in this gent's boat some time around mid March)-Tim is his name-he said his LiveScope system ran about $5500,more than what I paid for my SouthFork!!!I had met them probably in March and did not recognize the boat nor Tim til we chatted today and guess who caught the first two fish-de Ole Mandevillian with ZERO electronics but excellent spot dat NEVER fails me and Tim was tinkering around with his fine electronics while I stealthily paddled just a tad S of him and he said he could see PLENTY sac a lait and Kentucky bass on his LiveScope but the doggone slabs would chase the soft plastics then turn away at last second.Not sure what he caught while we fished close to each other but I missed HUGE slab,then boated three and a perch and he was headed towards much cleaner water,I was paddling and only went a short ways down T-Funky,had two blow-ups on Spro frog but could tell they were not big bass the way they smacked at frog.Headed back towards fish magnet,got call from Wifey dat the supply pipe for our 1050 ft deep Artesian well had a crack in it and dat was NOT what I wanted to hear but did drop another decent sac a lait on ice,got back to launch and stopped at Covington ACE hardware,think name is Steve's Hardware and ran into die-hard yak fisherman(need to let him know bout BS fee at Cane Bayou Launch)and he works part-time at Steve's Hardware and he hooked me up with repair items,should not be that difficult a repair!!!Tired of mechanical issues and was hoping today's T-Funky trip de medicine I needed but dat aint de case,unfortunately!!!Like our deer club president reminded me,eating a dinosaur is best accomplished ONE bite at a TIME!!!

Attempt #1 to attach pic-grandson loves watching his Paw Paw clean fish and Wifey and I did manage to fix offending leaking pipe-turned out to be elbow that somehow musta gotten hit and cracked and was real easy fix once we removed elbow and cleaned and re-installed new one after priming and using wet r dry glue,best kind for dem outdoor pipes.
