Lol. Nothing like being shot down first thing in the morning. Now posts some of the sharks.

It's been too cold since I bought the FZ20 to catch any, but here is a shot from an old Kodak DC260. Caught on a solo shark hunt out in the Gulf of Mexico ... a tiger shark ...

I usually fish for 'the pot' but this beauty was released.[/align]

Ok, I see it now. I've always released them. I'd love to be fishing today. Nice reel too.

The blue "mystery " motor looks like a Martin. The green one on the old boat looks like a Elgin. I know that I am "showin my age " on this one.

What do you know about the martin? Don't think I've ever heard of one.

i dunno about the rocks and such in that river, but a wise old timer wouldn't run in water shallow enough to smack his prop anyway, if he knew of the hazards. and i'll wager that Evinrude draws more water than the kicker, so if anything were gonna hit bottom, that'd be it. and the kicker certainly wouldn't add anything to the boat's speed - it'd just be wasting fuel - so there'd be really no point in having both motors running at once. most folks with rigs like that raise the kicker to reduce drag, not out of fear of hitting something with it, and if he's not going very far, there's really not much point in doing that. but hey... i wasn't there, so i'm really just guessing here.
