ter a fun night fishing at Grand Lake from a pier, I decided to return with a boat I had just traded for. It is a 12 foot aluminum hull made by sea king.

I have decided to visit some of the lakes around Ohio that I have not yet been too. This week I've have hit two different Lakes. The first Lake I visited it is called Kiser lake. When I arrived at this lake I discovered that over a beautiful place to visit, it seems to be over grown with moss and vegetation under the water. Fishing here was almost impossible for me so I left and headed to Grand Lake which is located between the towns of St Marys and Celina . For bait I had brought nightcrawlers and some frozen shrimp because I heard that frozen shrimp does very well in this lake. I was able to catch a few blue gills on nightcrawlers but both were too large to use as bait so I switched to a big rod baited with shrimp. In no time I got my first hit and was able to catch a nice size channel cat. This fish was about two and a half pounds and had very beautiful coloring.

Much work has been done to get this boat ready for the water. I am trying to if this all wound up so that I can be in the water and enjoying the summer. I had a problem with the electric anchor windlass which I traced to a faulty breaker. After inspecting the anchor line I decided that it was okay but the end needed to be cut off and reattached to the anchor.

Much has happened since the last time I posted to this blog. Since that time and recently, I have bought a Chris Craft commander 336 cabin cruiser.
I still enjoy building boats but I have decided that a boat this big and at the price that I bought it at, would be a much better deal for me been trying to build a boat this size. Older boats can offer a much better deal in the long run than trying to build a large boat. The boat is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and has many features that I never thought that I would have in a boat. For now, I will let the pictures do the talking for me. The boat is located in St Joseph Michigan and we will be launching soon and moving south. Watch for many adventures coming up this summer.
