Down but not out
Going on a few hours of sleep, headed offshore this morning for the king opener. Not very good. The radar bailed me out. Spotted a 20 boat fleet working way offshore. Joined them and immediately started catching fish. And then right on cue a hydraulic hose burst and sprayed fluid all over the boat. Without hydraulic power I cannot fish. Unable to cobble a repair, I am running back to town for a new hose so that I could get back off the dock tomorrow and go fishing.
