I had been dying all summer to get a boat and not have to fish from shore.

Unfortunately for me Kensico Reservoir, a world-class lake trout destination and closest to me, has no available spaces to put a boat.

The waiting list is years long and if you are able to buy a used boat along with a spot to keep it, it can cost up to 5k...that's insane for a motorless rowboat.

So I dig some digging and was able to get a boat a little farther north at Titicus Reservoir.

I prefer to pronounce it with a long 'i' but locals pronounce it 'TiT-i-kiss.'

It was only after I purchased the boat did I discover there is a murder mystery involved with this lake...
