2 guys, 3 hours, 50+ Stripers, and 3 Scumbags

6 posts in this topic

My buddy Tony and I got to the ramp at dawn. There were three guys in a Privateer having trouble launching. The cable on their power winch was bound up. They asked for tools and help. We did not have the tools but offered to help. After a while, We launched and got down the creek a ways before I realized I did not have my blue card so we headed back to the ramp. The boat owner still at the ramp seemed real surprised to see me and stammered something as I walked up to my truck. I got my card, and headed back to the ramp.

We ran out about 5 miles into the Delaware bay to a productive fall spot and anchored up. The tide was full in and not moving. We immediately started to catch oyster crackers. After about ten or so the tide began to run and the fish began to bite.

It was non stop action for about three hours into the outgoing. I stopped counting after 20 stripers, and my buddy caught 21. The action was non-stop and we only left because we had used every piece of bait we brought. We had a couple that were 26", but that was the largest, but still a great day on the water.

Now back to the scumbags:angryfire:............I go to pull my boat out and look at my winch.......and thanks to the scumbags, the winch handle is gone.:angryfire::angryfire::angryfire: I had a great time getting my boat up on the trailer with no winch. I don't know what is wrong with people these days. What a scummy thing to do.

Yep:icon_scratch:, I know it was them because we were the only two trucks in the parking lot, and the deer in the headlights look the guy gave me when I came back in a few minutes after leaving said it all. What comes around goes around, and people like that usually get what they deserve.

Thanks for the report and great job on catching!

Take a mental picture of those guys.. I am sure you won't forget that man's guilty looking face.

Believe me, I have a crystal clear picture of the boat owner's face and his ridiculous haircut.:icon_puke_l: I also have the boat make and model & the engine size and HP. I'm not really a praying man, but I sure was hoping I'd see those guys broken down on the road on the way out. Maybe it was for the better that I didn't. I checked three places around Dover, but nobody had any handles that would fit my winch. I ordered two new handles on the net, but who knows when they'll get here. I want to go fishing tomorrow, but I'm not looking foreward to cranking up my boat the last four feet with a crescent wrench again.:fucyc:
