Update. I am NOT going fishing today. My buddy who came down from Wake Forest for a couple of days has offered to help me put all my new gear on the boat so I am installing 2 depthfinders w/gps, trolling motor, 2 batteries, 4 rod holders, bimini top slides and fixing my vhf radio today.
An excellent decision and use of your time. I often tell folks I'm 'fishin' even when I'm doin' stuff like that - cuz it's all a part of fishin', and much of the same kind of enjoyment, satisfaction, and comradarie comes from it.
