Props to you for standing up & owning your " Learning Experiences". So many peeps are TOO GOOD to admit mistakes. I have no shame, and all about accountability. If we live through these shining moments, we can usually laugh about it later. I'm not a bass flogger, I classify myself as more of a passive fisherman. Occasionally I will work trees & structure for crappie. For the most part, I tie up & minnow fish and/or catfish. I've had my share of MOMENTS. The lady that fishes with me often can testify to some of the experiences as well. Things can happen quickly, the best we can do is----the best we can do. I'm HUGE on courtesy at the ramp. Other guys....not so much. Experienced an episode of RAMP RAGE just the other night. Certainly not proud of it, but I had a genuine meltdown on a fashion statement with cap on backwards about previously mentioned COURTESY. I'll bet you 4 dozen minnows that he didn't learn a damn thing. Be safe brutha.

I forgot to move the concrete block that my trailer jack was sitting on once. It got stuck under the trailer and make this CRAZY HUGE white mark from my house for about a mile.
A friend driving by my house saw it and called me, "I see you took the boat out... took a right toward Black Creek ramp." haha
On my way home I saw it, it was about 12" wide and white as snow leading all the way home.

Yeah I did all those things. Worst was when I didn’t secure my transom saver properly and hit a bump when going over a bridge and my motor fell down, couldn’t pull over, no emergency lane and was on a parkway so couldn’t stop. Probably ground 3 inches off my skeg. Good thing is my motor don’t rub when I forget to trim it up when pulling out of the lake.

Both powerpoles down. Did not pull them back up. Ran 3 miles back to the ramp wondering why the hell I could not get past 55mph. Let off the gas and the boat shot nearly straight up. Wanted to shoot myself for being so stupid. No damage those things are tough as nails. But I always look back before taking off now.

The worst, the WORST boating mistake I ever made was as a kid in the 90s. At our summer cottage, the guy next door said “use my crawdad all you want...I never use it” and of course I thanked him profusely (it was a canoe up until that point). Coming back from one trip, I failed to raise the trolling motor in time while coming into shore....SCRAAAAAPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE. The worst part about this is that you’re in shallow water and you’ve scraped into even shallower water so there’s no quick way to fix your fuck up. This thing was not the same for the rest of the summer after that and I didn’t know what to do. As a kid, I had no money to offer, no skills to fix it and no means to get him another one. It’s one of the few stains on my childhood memories spent on that lake and even though he was cool about it, I still felt like I betrayed his trust in a major, major way. It still disturbs me 25 years later. I’ll be cringing about that until the day I die...

Not to a dick but that's why I'm glad I started of with a very small boat about 30 years ago . Ya I've done some stupid stuff but never the things you noobs do . I learned over the years as I went from my 9 foot abs plastic boat and many other boats before getting my 20' Stratos with a 200 h.o. All you new guys just jump in to these big boats and don't realize the danger you put your self in .I've seen a lot of accidents both on the road and water that put people in the hospital . I've seen to many accident's on the big O almost every week fishing tournaments . I've seen young guy's that think they no how to drive a boat at high speed's just to lose control crossing another boat's wake. I'm 47 year's old now and it scares me to go out on the water every day and fish with you guy's .

I bought my first boat last year. Have been fine until earlier this week. Just a few days ago, I was telling my wife to always double check to make sure the plug is in before launch, and the outboard is up before we pull out. Right after explaining this during a test start in the driveway to get ready for the season, I forgot to trim the outboard back up before backing it in to my parking spot. Bent the skeg up a little bit. "why wont this go up the driveway?!" (I put in 4x4 thinking I didn't have enough traction). Then it dawned on me. I felt real dumb.

Hey do you know how to get the water out if your boat when you forget to put your plug in ?? Crank it up and run down the lake hauling butt and it will suck it out! Ask me how I learned ! Because after the first time I done that a friend told me that work and much faster than the pump. But I was thinking it want happen again and guess what ? It did and before I got into the water to put it in I sucked the water out going down the lake...... The forgetting the straps hooked on the back of the boat is the funniest this g when people are lol at you for sure and yes I have done that as well.

I forgot the plug on my third outing in my new boat and didn’t realize it until my cup holders started filling up with water! Terrifying experience! I grabbed the plug out of my rear storage compartment and and plunged head and shoulders off the back of the boat to put it in! I thought to myself later... “what if I would’ve dropped the plug into the lake?”

I've been in boats (no boat floatation or foam) in the winter duck hunting (15-20°) back in the day, when on several occassions my brother running the motor full speed (plug out to drain excess water buildup in boat - no bilge pump) and stop boat for several reasons only to find out he forgot to put it back in. in a 14' open bow fiberglass boat, she can fill up fast. Drop a plug overboard and inadvertently motor doesn't start and it's man overboard (which in winter can be death). Fortunately and a good tip is you can run that water right back out if you pull the plug and runner at fast enough speed depending on your boat (also in case bilge pump fails). Make sure you have fishing line with carabiner or something attached to that plug if ur reach over the back of a boat so you don't lose that plug when removing it, especially in cold water when fingers are stiff. And a 2nd backup spark plug (seen em blow out of block from failed threads (new motor/plug) and ceramic failure) always a good idea on boats especially given its not unheard of for a plug to come up missing. Depending on your motor, extra cotter pins, sheer pin, spark plugs, bulb pump (also a lot of people don't know a gas can pump bulge is suppose to be at a diagonal or vertical position not horizontal - due to its design for its valves to function properly) and even an ole beat up spar prop (if watching your dollars) might just be what gets you home and off the water. I've over my years seen all the above and more. Written Check lists for leaving home, pre boat launch at ramp, and exit ramp, to leaving boating facility ect lists can save many a headache and even a life... All have certain (some can be critical) items that need to be acted upon. From emergency brake set to make sure vehicle is in gear, plugs. Even knowing the boat ramp can be important to an outing, by knowing how far you can back a boat into the water - which as mentioned can be affected by any given day (water level - particularly tidal). Some ramps via their poor construction or even from prop back wash (gunning motor at ramp to get boat on trailer) which I see a lot of people do as in a few days ago. That backwash effect versus ratcheting your boat on can a will dig out the shore or bottom behind the ramp as will poor construction or even natural errosion - leaving a drop off behind a ramp. What happens is when backing trailer up (particularly in shallower water) your wheel's drop off the back of the ramp. This can case you to be stuck depending on the power of ur tow vehicle and other factors. Particularly if your towing connected to a truck bumper. Bumper have been damaged and even pulled off trying to get the trailer tire/boat back over that harsh drop off. So at least get that boat back off if you can't get er done with normal effort, then trailer the boat. I know thus is a bit long winded but to some newbies and not well seasoned water men - it can be priceless - especially in the cold weather. A quick dog ears on the motor before leaving home especially 1st of the season and long trips can help assure you don't back up a boat ramp and add stress to ur's and others outings - in making sure she cranks at the gitgo. Hope this helps some, after a long fatiguing day on the water - it's easy to get forgetful.
Also for new waters and even ones your familiar with I like IBOATS app (no affiliation) to see what the obstructions and mean water depths are. I understand it can interface with other electronics. This can be especially handy around some boats ramps like one around here where it's really really shallow getting out and tricky long sharp curves and a lot of boaters get grounded not knowing it's lay out. It also has tracking and playback for those on strange waters and up creeks with forks ect. It's a paid app I paid $14. Good luck and have a great safe 2018 boating season.

We all have been there the busy boat ramps are the worst. Your right take your time make sure the boat is ready to launch the people waiting didn't pay for your boat it could be a Z18 nitro or a Bass tracker don't matter your hard earned money is not going to have some stupid thing happen because people are waiting. That's life but with practice and a few times you will be good to go on launch and load . I had a buddy make me a sticker I put on my inner console that say " make sure the plug is in don't be dumb " . Do you think you could do a video on Transducer location and running more then one unite with multiple transducers. I know run one unite at a time but having 3 transducers and a custom transom saver board how far what is the proper spacing and the 3rd one is on the trolling motor . I want the best readings I can get seeing the money I paid for the units . Thanks keep on grinding

I forgot the plug one time, with no bilge pump had to run get the car and winch up the boat just enough on the trailer to drain it. Heavy! after drying it out went out had engine problems couldn't get the motor started had to swim for it with my rope line pulling the boat to shore! sucked! This was years ago & now i take my time & make sure the motor is ready to go before getting on the water.

Ok so I've owned my boat a year and the really only bonehead move was the very first time I launched the boat was on a decently steep ramp. The ice had just gone out and the dock wasn't even in the water yet but I had to take it out for a spin. I get the boat ready and double check everything on the list. What I didn't realize is that my trailer being a roller trailer just how easy the boat would roll back on the trailer. I unwound a couple feet of line from the winch but didn't flip the lock back on. I had put a long line on the bow eye, thankfully. I back up a couple feet and wanted to look at something (know idea what) but when I got out I realized my boat is about 4 feet back on the trailer and that the rope that I had hooked to the bow eye had gotten wrapped around the winch handle stopping my boat from sliding off onto the concrete ramp. It was damn close.

I never pull my plug unless its rained. That way I never foget to put it in. That's my tip for the day. Don't pull your plug unless its necessary. I see guys all the time forget to put the plug in. And you ask them why they pulled it in the first place... And they don't have an answer. They must think there 50 thousand dollar rig has a leaky hull or something. Idk

I don't think that you have failed miserably. Every one makes mistakes, it's the assholes that don't learn from them nor take precautions. I have been boating for 13 years with no casualties. I think that most boaters are so arrogant about having their toys that they put themselves and others in jeopardy. Me? I have a checklist from hitching the boat to my truck to the pre launch and launch procedures.

I have an excellent driving and boating record due to learning from my mistakes, taking precautions and not being a show off.

Fish by myself alot and I've nearly perfected the launch with a rope tied to the bow of the boat and the trailer, slowly pull the boat up on the ramp (as long as you have a keel guard)., Reason I say almost perfected is you must remember to tie it to the trailer!! I launch my 1 month old Z21 into a lake and sat on the ramp as it commensed to float over a mile before it blew up on a point. Air temp was upper 30s, water mid 30s so I wasn't swimming for it.

I was night fishing with my dad as a kid and had to use the trolling motor to navigate to the ramp. Problem was we left the trolling motor down and fired up the engine to drive it on the trailer. You guessed it, we ripped the trolling motor right out of the deck! Freaked us out but I caught it by power cable. Pulled it up and the shaft was bent at a 45 degree angle lol. We had to laugh because it was so dumb. Luckily an insurance claim brought us an upgrade from a 12v to a 24v system which was a huge upgrade 20 years ago. In the end something good came out of something that was such a rookie dumb mistake. Dont you feel better now about your mistakes?

Ok this could be a little long, but here goes. My first boat was a used 1974 Browning. This boat taught me about really inspecting a boat. Anyway, Father’s Day here in SC. We took the boat out to Lake Keowee for a cookout and a day on the lake with my grown kids and my grands. Well, everything went well until I decided I’d take the boat down the lake by myself to just run it out before getting the family on it. I got out past the no wake buoys and shoved the throttle forward. That’s when I heard a loud “pow” behind me. I turned around and saw water coming into the boat where the transom used to be. The 150 Mercury was sitting at a very odd angle. I shouted to my wife, “I’m sinking!” Her response, “What do you want me to do about it?” Fortunately, there were several boats around who helped me. One towed my boat to the landing while another gave me a lift. By the time they got the boat to the landing, it had capsized. There were about 10 of us in the water righting this boat so I could crank it up on the trailer. I can laugh about it now, but at the time all I could do was lament how $2000 was going to the bottom of the lake! Lessons learned.

I’ve done the trolling motor one time. Hope to never do it again. Moving spots. Friend with me. Strapped the rods down. Fired up the boat and smashed on the pedal. Water spraying everywhere!!!!

Gotta slow down sometimes.

We were on a big shad school bite and stayed out too late one night, it was dark dark. On the way back in we hit the spot light everything looked good only going about 1/2 mile to go to the creek channel and the boat ramp. We could see cars and car lights on the bridge we were headed too. Buddy in the front of the boat yells and points left Driver "not me" goes right and I watch a Channel marker buoy pass inches from my side of the boat at 40mph. Now we where in a 19ft aluminum boat and I would hate to think about how much trouble we could have been in if we had hit that. We fish in that area hundreds of times but just forgot about that buoy. We did keep the spotlight on the rest of the way in.

OK, on the fail theme... Buddy got a brand new boat. I'm there to help him pick it up and go test it out. As we are picking it up from the dealer (I won't say who) the dude going over it is baked as hell. I ask him where the drain plug is as I can see where it goes but nothing is in it. He rambles on about not needing it and so on. I'm like "OK, maybe this is something new".

Needless to say, we drop it in the water and I run the truck and trailer back the parking lot. I get back to the boat to find it partially filled and my buddy in a panic. He realized it was sinking and dove in and shoved his shirt in the hole for the drain plug to slow the process down. Luckily we got it out and went and got a drain plug and life was fine, but it wasn't how one should send a boat out for the first time.

It's called a "walk around", every time you hook up the boat, are ready to move the boat, launch the boat, or load the boat, you "walk around" and check everything, also check the water at the ramp before you back in, I have found things submerged at boat launches that could damage your boat if backed into.

Ive done all of these more times than i can count on both hands and feet! glad we can all relate, now i dont feel like such a dimwit. When i bought my second boat i didnt have the right hitch size for the drive home and she popped off doing about 55mph down the turnpike, thankfully i had a buddy with to help me lift it back up. last but not least i couldnt figure out why i had no spark coming from the plugs so i took the flywheel off to check the wiring for the stator but i wrecked it in the process. A new one cost me 150 bucks and a day later i come to find the safety shutoff chord was unplugged! Good laughs is the second best part of owning a bass boat in my opinion

Thanks for sharing. Ive got several doozies, I guess the classic of all time is not putting the plug in Striper fishing Clarks Hill at night. Crossing the Dam, fish were busting herring all over the place. Launched, hauled ass to the dam and on the third fish stepped of the front deck into three inches of water. Hit the bilge and drove slowly to siphon water back out enough to get back to shore. It was only 130 feet deep and that was the third time I did it. Guess everything is best done in three's.

First day getting the trailer hitch installed, slid the hitch in to see how it looked etc, got in to talking with someone about bla blah blah.. got home 20 miles down the highway and we forgot about it and the pin, the ball joint was about a half inch from bouncing out, 2nd time out with the boat at a new to us non- paved launch, forgot to install the plug. 5 hours of fishing we were still floating high but had gallons and gallons of water come out once she was on the trailer. (We were trolling 4km an hour the whole day other then ripping the lake at 49kmh. Gotta love a Lund boat.
3rd time out, tried beaching the boat with the trolling motor down, only minor scratches.1st 2nd and 3rd time out forgot to close the air valve on the gas tank for the boat.. nothing spilled out. 4th time out forgot the center strap for the boat and trailer.
4th time out, way back forgot the locking pin on the ball connection, lucky that lake is close on a somewhat smooth highway.. I think jats about it for now lol

the absolute worst for me? first time putting in my new rig, FIRST TIME camping/fishing Possum Kingdom. that evening was perfect for a night of topwater. absolutely destroyed them for HOURS! (one of THOSE kind of nights) fish turned off late, maybe 1:am, time to go back to the campsite. we had gone SO far and we were lost on a moonless night. no compass/lake map, (everything new) BUT, i had my flood light. ok, no problem? BIG PROBLEM! that lake is so big, and so many little twists and curves, it took us till first light to finally find our wives and trucks!? so damn tired and pissed, we ate breakfast and of course went right back out. that next night i slept like a caveman.

My worst fail: Took my brother fishing for the first time. at the end of the day, I asked if he was able back the trailer down the ramp so I could load the boat. I told him, I can do it if he can't. Of course he said he could do it. This was summer time in AZ, so the ramp is just crazy at 11:00 am. He tried to back up the trailer and then gave up. so my truck is 1/2 way down the ramp, everyone is pissed off, so I tie the boat to the dock, run to the truck, back it up, hit the emergency brake and hop out. run to the boat, load the boat, clip the boat, get in the cab of the truck and then I see it.....my truck was in reverse.....can't believe how lucky I was that my truck and trailer just didn't back itself into the lake. that could have ruined my day.....

Other annoying fails in my first year of owning a bass boat...forgetting to remove the motor toter, forgetting to turn the master power switch on (realize this as I am floating off the trailer), can't get the boat to start and then realize the kill switch is not engaged, trying to take off with the engine fully trimmed (bow goes straight up in the air). I am pretty good now, haven't had these fails for quite a while but I do forget the plug about 1 of every 10 trips, but I had a remote plug installed, now I just go to the back deck and close it.

I got lucky, partially. My boat has a remote drain plug, but it has the old plug too. Colorado law is you have to have the plug pulled or you can get a ticket. Got chewed out at the ramp once for not pulling the old manual plug. I'll probably put it in and point out the remote plug if I ever get stopped.
Bad Mackrel Bass Fisherman
Bad Mackrel Bass Fisherman - 2 years ago
Get a remote plug installed. Cost about $150. When you forget to put the plug in, you won't have to pull the boat out. Surprised your boat doesn't already have it.

I’ve made the mistake of taking off with the trolling motor down too. Broke my shaft in half. But I think one of my most embarrassing mistakes was getting up from my seat with my pfd and safety lanyard still on, backed up my truck, went back in the boat and I couldn’t get the boat started. After about a good 5 minutes, I finally realized that the annoying string that kept getting tangled around my arm was my safety lanyard for my kill Switch.

I forgot to unhook my cord to the battery charger and had it hooked into the cleat on the boat and drug the cord 3 miles down the road to the pond I was fishing. When i got the the lake I found the charger hooked up but no power cord, so i figured it pulled apart at home. I fish for about 4 hours load the boat up and driving out the primitive road that goes down to the lake I find my 100 ft power cord in the road. It has a little road rash, but still in good shape and I still use it. lol

This past year was my first year ever owning a bass boat as well. Bought my VT 17 Crestliner in June 2017. Here are my 3 biggest "learning" issues...
Trip 1, Couldn't get motor to start, then realized after a half hour of WTF's, I didn't have the kill switch lanyard plugged in.
Trip 2, had a great day, went to load up the boat, but had trailer backed in too deep. Didn't know, and was frustrated why I couldn't get the nose up on the post.
Trip 3, Forgot to trim the motor up pulling out of the water and away from the launch ramp at the end of the day. A guy chased me down and pointed out how my skeg was dragging.

Can't wait for some pre-spawn action!

I always forget something when other people are “trying” to help. I just ask them politely to worry about their stuff and I’ll take care of mine.

I am very particular on how I pre-check for launch and also when we get back to the fish camp. I start inside the boat first making sure everything is turned on and stored. Then work the outside. The load up! Maybe takes a few more minutes...but it’s worth it.

Done all those except the drop cord. But one I'll never forget or forgive myself for is taking off the rear seat to open one of the doors and didn't put the seat back in the hole. Yep, lost it somewhere on the road. Still haven't got another one. I hardly used it anyway lol

Yup. Done most of these things. The trolling motor down is the worst when you get going. At least on my boat, once you hit a certain speed, a ridiculous amount of spray comes over the bow. Funny on a warm day, not so funny when it's cold and windy. Haha.

I've also driven away with the electrical cord still attached. Twice!

Have you pulled the boat out of the water before turning the motor off? I've done that a few times. =(

I think Ive done all those things.. that’s just part of boating regardless of what anyone tries to claim! I do worse with Kayaking.. It’s almost a given I am going to forget something, so I have made a point of gassing the truck up the morning of the fishing trip so while I am there I can figure out what I missed this time.. lol

Oh c'mon now ya'll..A CORN COB !!!!..Yes way better than any toilet paper, leaf , stick or poop kit !..A CORN COB really digs in and gets you clean. Then rinse it off in the lake and toss it in the glove box. You can even toss it the cooler if you want a cool deep cleaning on a blazing hot summers day. I keep a CORN COB stuck to a nail and board in every bathroom in my house ! Easy to make, just cut a board and nail a barn nail through the bottom. Stab your COB on it and your ready to wipe anytime ! You can even make a CORN COB necklace for hunting or hiking !..A lot you can do with your COB ! Make a CORN COB holster and practice your quick draw in the mirror and impress folks when your out and about !
It's dishwasher safe too !..or when you wash your boat,have your fishing buddy,wife hold it out and give it a good high pressure blasting...!

The older you get the more you'll screw up by being forgetful. Wait until you leave your boat keys at home. After that day they now stay with my truck keys
