This all makes sense, really! Cold outside? Yes! Looking forward to spending some time doing nothing? Arn’t you doing that now? Sitting and just waiting to be able to go outside. For me it actually means doing that nothing you want to do. basically anything related to my boat.

    I really like the classic old boathouse pics. When can we get back on the water again? April?

    People look aghast when I tell them I fish with Panther, they assume all our boats are trailer queens.

    Molly-O was designed, by my grandfather, for fishing as it not only has rear steering, but a very elaborate bait/live fish well in the “jump” seat. It is copper lined with a brass framed center divider and aireaided(sp?) by a fresh water diverter valve system from the engine. It also has fishing rod holders on both sides of the interior siding. All of the above was installed by CC.
    I have fond memories of Bass and Muskie fishing as a young minnow with my father, grandfather and brothers.

      You can see the rod holders and rear steering bar and back of the jump/bait box. ………..side bar— also note the original paddle in its holder.

    No fishing in the photo – just my brothers & I, trying to talk my uncle into jumping in for a swim. We lived a couple hours from the nearest place to use the cruiser, so camped weekends aboard. Usually like this, tied up at the islands near Manchester, OH. My brothers would fish, with bamboo poles baited with past it’s prime lunchmeat & soggy cheese from the bottom of the cooler. One morning, they left the poles hanging over the back during breakfast, pancakes eaten kneeling around the motorbox, which was used as a table. Finally, a fish took that bait! As it pulled the pole over the transom, they yelled for someone to jump in after it. The only one already in a swimsuit, I chased that pole halfway across the river. Of course the fish got free, just as I caught the pole.

      UGH! reminds me of the time I was deep sea fishing on a friends 63″ Viking Sportfish off of Palm Beach Fla,. (rich friend…) we were fishing for Marlin so he had the big gear out,, A fish hit on one of the lines and the mate handed me the pole,… before I could put on a belt or get in the fighting chair the fish yanked the rod right out of my hands and over the side!!.. Custom rod and expensive Shimano reel…was close to $3000…

    Cannot wait to head out again this summer….

    Nothing like doing nothing at six oclock in the morning.

    I have a boat. I have a cabin. I don’t really fish. Is something wrong with me?

    • Mark in Ohio (sometimes da U P)

      There is nothing wrong with you Rabbit. I have both too, and I don’t really like to fish either. I do my fishing at the local Restaurant/Bar at the Friday nite fish fry. Maybe I need a fishing buddy. Like the one I showed earlier.

    I have had the place on Harsens Island for 15 years now, and I still have not found time to go fishing. I have set up many of my guests with everything they need and sent them off in the rowboat, but still haven’t been myself. Maybe this year!
