Outdoors: A perfect way to break in a new boat


Last week was a busy one.  

My wife Beth and I drove 2200 miles round trip to central Florida to bring back a new bay boat that we had custom built.  

It was a long, fast and tiring trip.

The day after returning to Texas was spent wiring a new electric trolling motor so that I could take my granddaughter Demaris Darnell and her friend Gracie Stewart to Lake Bastrop bass fishing in the new boat.

They are very competitive and each was determined to catch the first fish from the new boat.
