With the bow mount gps controlled trolling motor it is pretty relaxing. Much better than constant adjustments of the tiller or steering wheel. I do make frequent adjustments but it is just a matter of pushing a button on the remote that is hanging from my neck. Oh and the kokes are growing a little each week.

No. Lake Billy Chinook in Central Oregon. The only place in Oregon where you can legally keep a bull trout. The problem is they must be 24" to keep. Due to that limit and the fact that few above that are actually kept they are starting to overpopulate the lake. Thus diminishing their food supply. Due to ESA it is a pain to change the regs for ODFW which would like to implement a slot limit to reduce the reproductive population a bit.

I'm getting real slow in my old age. I didn't get the joke on your reference to the recliner until jimr's response. Never thought you would be to subtle for me!

Actually Dave I didn't claim a bad day of fishing, just a bad day of hanging on to fish! And it was so bad it became comical. Besides what is work? Been a few years for me!
