Donny, you're out of your element...
Long paddle this AM, fished a whole bunch of new territory and caught a range of SRC from 12 -18, most fish in the cleaner water.
Stopped a bunch of times to shoot birds, how badass do these juvies look?
Caption for the caspian terns?
Near a sunk unsalvageable boat up on the low tide mudbank I saw one prop. You would only see it if you were within 3-4 yards. Waded through some mud, and thought I saw a second, retrieved the first and went back.... Two 26 inchers, the kayak was running a little low to the waterline. My theory is the props were on the boat, the boat looks like it was the kind of rambling hoarder live-aboard you sometimes see permanently anchored up and listing in the tidal water. Maritime hoarder. The boater probably tossed them when they started taking on water. They were on a mud bank and I would think they should sink into the muck if they were there for a while. Plus the barnacles were small. It makes me think if I did my diligence there might be more, but how to explain more props to my wife, who already is bewildered.
Men like big-ass propellers.
Can I get an amen that that is the only explanation needed?
They cleaned up pretty good, a nice brass (edit- bronze- thanks Rotato!)
