Does anyone know how to lift a hex from someone?:confused: It seems like everything I do lately, everything gets a little twisted. Here is a couple of examples. I am running down the waterway tonight at about 3/4 throttle, almost sank a little jon boat with no running lights. Of course I get cursed. I don't feel as if it is my fault. If you are going to be out and about at night, install some running lights. I know it is a holiday weekend, but my first six or seven holes I pull up to, seems to have 20 tow-rows in them.(local term for weekenders, no offense guys:D). I pull in to my first one, its not quite dark yet. I sling 5 or 6 flounder in the boat, and the three or four boats close by can see what I am doing.:( Well its time to move. I fire the motor up and before you know it I am leading a flotilla of flounder boats. I go on through the night very irritated, but keep my cool. I lose several nice fish tonight. Unusual. I might lose one or two small ones on any given night. I have the duct seal on a light come off. The first time ever! I get zapped by the generator before I realized something was wrong. I take the light loose, and put new seal on it. Five minutes later, that light blows. I get that fixed, look behind me, and my "flounder flotilla" has tripled. "alright I'll fix this problem", I crank up and run a few miles up the water to Jacksonville. Plenty of flounder up there. Too bad they were all between 6-12in.. All 200 of them. I'm changing the oil in my lower unit yesterday. I drop the top screw on the ground. Have yet to find it! Must have fallen through a portal to another dimension. Had to go buy another. I bought two bags of gulp pogies one day this week, and three packs of storm shrimp. Set them on my porch so I wouldn't forget to put them in my tackle box. come in to eat dinner, couldn't have been more than twenty minutes, and my friendly neighbor racoons had already stolen them. Wednesday I went to get ny truck and down the boat ramp. I had one flat tire on my truck, and one on my trailor. Get that taken care off. Coming home from work Thursday, the idler pulley goes out on my truck. My last three or four fishing trips have been horrible.

Still beats being stuck at work, though!

(I hope...)

Count your blessings brother, it could be worse. You have a boat, you have a home, you know some good flounder holes, you have running lights, you are able to go fishing...etc. Life is frustrating at times but it sure helps to take a deep breath and consider what we do have to be thankful for. I don't believe in hexes, just varying degrees of blessing. Okay so I'm an optimist! :) Tight lines!

Did you take Lefty fishing?:eek: There are a couple of tricks for shaking followers though. Mostly they involve timing and shallow water. You'd better know what you are doing though or you might have worse luck.:( As far as things breaking; look at it like this. There ain't no better time to catch up on maintenance and repairs than memorial day weekend and the week of the fourth. Turn lemons into lemonade cause as much as you want to be out there catching them up it will be a fight for survival and a sure case of lost sanity. Once you get stressed out things have a tendancy to go south in a hurry. The weekend will pass quick enough and you'll be ready for some uninterrupted fishing. And oh yeah, I feel real sorry for ya!:p:D

Bread Man---Looks like you may have a deep rooted spell here. I hope you are not carrying any of those aleins on the boat such as you have displayed in your atavar. I believe I would consider changing atavars-- if this doesn't work you may have to spend a week or so down in Haiti.:D

Sundrop and Fojo are now the official "witch doctors" of the site.:D I'm sure one of the two can give you advice to lead you in the right direction.:) Or say a few words and spill some trout or chicken blood on your behalf.:eek:
