Your Favorite Mechanic Fishing?!

It's never a bad idea when one is mechanically inept as I am to take one's favorite mechanic (Sal's Marine) and good friend fishing. Although it sounds like a match made in heaven, seldom does it work out as one might think.

Of course nothing would go wrong with the boat, not even a hiccup with a mechanic on board. Of course that didn't translate into making him a fisherman either. When Sal's pole bent over double with an 8 lb. ummm Pelican, it's one interesting way to start the day.

Sal did get it together, well he is a fisherman by nature so he eventually he gave me some help. A limit of 50 Trout and back at the dock for 9:30 a.m. so Sal had plenty of time to troubleshoot outboards at his shop before calling it a day. Enjoyed it Sal, thanks for keeping us on the water my friend. Forgive me for the pic., I couldn't resist.
