    Nice to see those rocks when the water is down. I bet they have a ton of metal on them. I recognized most of the run except really wasn't sure on the spot you went dry on. Was that right before the three channel split coming down to the beaver hole?

    Great video nothing like knowing you are going to hit and still going through with it! Now where is the video of the recovery?

    I was wondering if you had forgotten to post this video.. next video we need a demonstration of your unstuck tactics!.. Hopefully involving a shiny new "gas powered" winch! Here are a couple stuck pictures from this season... I'll have a pretty good video montage to post soon!

    I think next spring Ill just bite the bullet and get a pullpal and winch attachment for the chainsaw. Add a snatch block and I should be good to go.

    I got stuck right near the first island going up. Just past where the second dock is. I know its shallow on the left of the island, and to the right. I never really realized I should be cutting to the right just before the island to make it without scraping. I bumped on the way up, like I have in the past...not so lucky on the way back down. If I was about 10 feet to the right when coming down, I would have just bumped again but made it. Oh well...it was fun...i think

    Doesn't help with the sun in your eyes! Been in that situation enough to learn a few lessons myself.

    Thanks for the video.
