2009 sun tracker fishing barge 21. Boat and motor are both in very good shape. I was really surprised how nice it was




Not the best picture so I will get some more up when I get it on the water. Very first thing I did was pull out the changing popup deal in the back to gain three more foot of deck space back there. Got two bee ready double pole holders mount to the front this morning. Will see how those do then pick up a few for the back also.

Could use some recommendations on good things to keep while out fishing. I have bought a decent amount of tackle to rig the poles, and have four setups now for catfish and two good bass rods and a nice little crappie rod as well. One thing I need for sure is some way to store rods while I am driving around or the boat is in the marina. I got a slip on lavon yesterday so it will be staying at the marina full time. Only thing wrong with the boat is there is no rod locker.

Thanks

Walter

Thanks guys, used to have bass boat a few years ago but this is going to be much better, plenty of room and throw out a bunch of poles and kick back and relax, that is my kind of fishing. Hopefully I can get in on the water tonight and get it to its new home in the marina.

The first and third pics have Bee Ready's -the middle
Pic is just PVC pipe that I painted black and mounted-
The rod holders are driftmasters and a couple of Bee Ready's-

Thanks, I was just over there yesterday and got two of the two rod holders on the mount to put on each corner of the front for now. I kinda of got distracted in there and spent a bunch, So will have to head back over there and get a few more things once I get back to work....

Got it in the water tonight and did some driving around. Boat runs great. And got it parked in the marina no problem. I know I need an anchor, and some pole holders for while I am driving the boat. But also really need to get a fish finder setup so that i know how much water I am in. And I can find the structure and drop offs. Still not sure if I should go with hummingbird or lowrance. Just to many options to choose from.

Looks pretty good! Hard to beat a pontoon for roominess. Get some slime on it and you'll be good to go.

First fish off the new pole and boat.




It's no monster but a good start.
