That's the lesson I learned tonight coming back from a lake. First time ever I've lost a boat from off the truck. I was able to retrieve it, where it was neatly placed on the side of the road with skid marks nearby. Thank God it was a professional driver (by the tracks, I'm guessing it was a dump truck from a nearby quarry). So far as I know no one was hurt. That's what was freaking me out the most - that someone would get hurt from my mistake. I can get more boats. From all I know, no new boat is needed and no one was injured, and I learned (relearned) a valuable lesson.
I didn't catch anything, but I did see one heck of a sunset and had enough strong hits to go back. Too small of a jig head on and I didn't feel like taking the time to retie. It was so pretty out, with a gentle breeze blowing the bugs away, and the deer were grazing, and the colors of the sunset were blowing me away, putting a fish to hand was fairly low on the priority list.
