Motored out the main canal at dawn into a NNE wind about 10mph. The wind was blowing almost straight down the bay, it was choppy and the S. shoreline was tannin stained and off color.

I just got my boat back from the shop and wanted to run it to see if it would over-heat. It didn't so I drove it like I stole it.

I ended up on the N shoreline and the water was really sandy with maybe 10" visibility and tons of bait.
I waded hard sand/grass in thigh deep water and was throwing a blk/chrome
Skitterwalk.

I caught three trout 18"-24" as fish were actively busting bait in the area. Then a dark line of clouds and a strong NE wind started blowing and it got rough and started white capping.
I waded back to the boat and ran in. Fishing always makes my back feel better (riiiiiiight).

Apparently a new water pump, new lower unit oil, top off hydraulics, new plugs, installed raycor water seperator, then ran it in the test tank @ 3500 rpm for 30 minutes with heat sensors on the block. No hot spots, no alarm or over-heating, and thermostat was at exactly the right temp. Wahla!! $$$. LOL

Can't think of a better way to start the day, kenny. That was some therapy for me just to read it. Thanks!

I'm under employed at the moment and going to be OFFT completely starting Wednesday. I think I see a road-trip in my immediate future. LOL :bounce:
