When given a challenge–come up with a creative solution.
We purchased a 10-foot Porta-Bote a couple of weeks ago and wanted to launch it in Lake Alamo … however the boat ramp was about 1/4-mile from our campsite.
Instead of breaking camp to tow the light-weight boat to the ramp, Jimmy attached it with a rope to the rear rack of his bicycle.
He successfully made the journey and launched the Porta-Bote without any further complications.
We fished in it each of the four days we were at Lake Alamo State Park, about 40 miles north of Welden, AZ.
Jimmy caught several bass; I practiced fly casting. Other campers reported catching channel cat fish by the full moon and crappie by trolling.
