Has anyone been out yet?

I'm surprised I haven't heard of anyone taking advantage of this warm early season, especially those of you in the lower latitudes. Have any of you been out yet? Or, is everyone afraid of a late freeze?

My last outing was February 2nd, hopefully I make it back out this week if the weather holds.

How's the water at Pleasant? Pulled the boat out to get it ready for the season. 3 pulls on the throttle and she cranked right up. Ran it for 20-30 minutes, cleaned it up, now can't start it. Fuel issue, will have to deal with that.

The water was great, really smooth. The level is a lot higher than the end of last summer. Only went out for a couple hours on Saturday 3/5 afternoon. Installed a 2nd battery set-up in the the morning then went out. Had a slight starting issue at the lake as it would not stay running the first couple times. 3rd time was fine and it ran great afterwards. I have been busy or out of town since and have not had a chance to go out since. 3/26 should be my next free day :-)
