We hit another part of the Pasquotank River today and it turned out to be a crazy day of fishing. We found a few new honey holes and was catching a mixed bag of fish, we caught bowfin, bluegill, catfish, bass and yellow perch.They were biting so good at one point that I was catching two at a time.
Just as we were getting ready to move on to a new spot a storm blew in real quick on us. We decided to try and wait it out for about 15 minutes and the rain didnt let up any at all and then the thunder and lighting started cracking all around us, so we decided to call it a day and head back in and thats when everything started to go down hill. At first I couldnt get the boat motor to start only to discover I forget to put the safety switch on. Then we got it to start and as we was starting out the engine dies and the starter locks up. We had to take off the engine cover and reset the started, all while its down pouring. After about 20 minutes of messing with that we finally got things running smooth and headed back to the fishing ramps. We get the boat loaded and start to take off and the rain stops and the sun starts to shinning.
