me and a buddy of mine put in at portman around 4:30 pm sat. headed up seneca river and the lower unit went out on my boat near the mouth of coneross creek. we finally washed up near oconee point around dark. called a buddy of mine and he said it would be a couple of hours before he could get there, so we decided to fish. caught 6 or 8 fish (5-8lb range)and a 15lb catfish. so my buddy finally got there and we decided to stay and fish untill around 5 am sun. had my buddy pull my boat to oconee point landing. left my partner with the boat while he carried me back to portman to get the truck. so i get to oconee point and guess what??? the gate is locked and there is a sign that says closed for season. (what luck) so i drive to coneross hoping to find someone who can pull my boat from oconee point to coneross, but nobody was there. i spot a bass fisherman across the lake and i flashed my truck headlights at him for about an hour and a half before he comes over to see what my problem is. i explained to him the situation and he agreed to pull me to coneross. so we go get the boat and finally get home around 10:30 sun. morning. this is a weekend i will never forget and hope i never have again.
p.s. will repost after i tell wife i need to spend $500.00-$1000.00 on foot repair. lol
