Plug it

I have always wondered how the hell someone forgets to put a boat plug in. I mean, shouldn't that be the first thing you would do before launching? Ive never understood it. Iv'e launched hundreds and hundreds of times and this has never happen to me. Until today. Everything is going great, my friend backs me in, comes back and I swing by the dock and off we go like a always. We idle around the first spot looking for bait. Ok, bait found and we start fishing. First cast and bingo I get a grab. Nice. I come off the deck to lip the fish and I step into 3 inches of water. WTF! We got issues. A fire drill ensued and we put er back on the trailer to drain. No harm no foul and we were back on the water and stuck a few. Be safe folks.

Well, I am! Once, I left the boat plugs home. Did not know it and drove over a (100) miles to put our boat in. Guess what?
