Lake Norman 1-28-07

Not much to report except wind. The day started off bad at the landing while putting up the stern light, I heard a splash and realized my cell phone had done a suicide dive. We fished the main channel from just south of the hot hole (which wasn't running) to the peninsula. Saw a few birds hit the water but no bites. Finally got tired of being beat by the wind and headed for Hagar Creek. Saw a lot of bait on the graph but still no bites. The wind followed us to Hagar Creek so we pulled up and headed to Stumpy Creek where it's "usually" fairly calm but not today. I don't think there was a calm spot on the lake today and the longer we tried to fish, the harder it blew so around 11:30, we headed for the trailer and off to Verizon for another phone.
Needless to say, this was a very expensive and unproductive day but it still Beats Workin' :cool:

Sorry to hear about your phone - I had one do that last year too - only trouble is it took me with it...lol.. Glad the water was still int he 70's then.

Thanks for the report

Be careful though. I dropped two of them in on fishing trips. (I know, I know..i shoulda learnt the first time). My insurance on my cell phone cancelled me. Said they were too close together.:confused:

Couldn't imagine fishing the lake the way the wind blew here. Someone needs to come out with a cell phone that floats for clummsy fishermen. Me being one also.

I used to wonder why they didn't just go ahead and make a wristwatch version until I thought about trying to dial out. Keep a box of ziplocks onboard and some appropiately sized foam pieces to put items like keys and phones if you think you can make yourself use them. Years ago I lost my keys in 80'of water. I was 35 miles from home. No spares in my Bronco. Nobody around. No phones around. Nearest friend's house was 8 miles away. I was about 250 yds. from her house when my parents came by on their way to Franklin. They were living in Columbia, SC and decided to go to Franklin to get out of the heat. That was luck sure enough because she wasn't at home. Anyway things went smoothly after that even though there was the matter of another hour on the road. I no longer go swimming with my keys in my pocket. When I'm kayaking they go in a ziplock with a foam pad.
