After seeing how Earnest took an old pontoon and turned it into a crappie catching machine, I just had to give it a try. I have a 21 ft Sweetwater pontoon that we use to pull the grandkids tubing on. With a little help from David at Shut And Fish who hooked me up with some spare brackets and wiring assemblies and of course Ed Phillips at Pro Angler who supplied the Bee Ready rod holders. I had the TM in the attic that my brother gave me about 5 years ago. I'm now ready to go toon trolling.



I just pull the electronics off the Skeeter and away we go. 1198 on the console, 1199 on the TM. It even has an onboard potty for us old guys. Only problem is it's about 40MPH slower than the Skeeter getting from A to B, but it sure is comfortable fishing out of.

There you go. Sweet ride. Plenty of room. Nice setup. Ernest and Guy taught me all about crappie fishing. They're great people.
