well we got to the lake at 5:30 pm fired up the genny and headed out 4 minutes later genny DIED started back up died again did this about 5 more times. Now its time to switch genny's got the other one strapped down fired it up and it die's start it up again and you guessed it it died again so i added more OIL and it still did the same thing so added MORE oil still did the same so you guessed it MORE oil well it ran for about 4 seconds and WOW look at all the smoke ooops way to much oil that was the problem on the first genny also so what do i do pour some oil out (in the bottom of the boat) and the genny runs like a champ now we are fishin. shot a fish and hop down to get the fish barrel and you guessed it again SLIPPED in OIL florr is now VERY slick . now everything is in place and we are good to go . saw lots of groupd of 3 to 5 fish and hit 1 fish for every 10 shots we made (wow I need to get back in the groove) but all in all it was a very good first trip in the winter
