Getting more POWER on my Pontoon. A few things I have learned about fishing on a pontoon. One it's the best, most comfortable boat I have ever fished on. Two, it sits on top of the water like an empty beer can. Wind can be a problem.

To help with this problem I'm getting a new 36V, Xi5, 105# trolling motor from Shut-up-and-fish today.



I fished Tues., Thurs., Friday, & Sunday mornings on Lewisville. Fish are all over the brush-piles. Averaged around 7 Keeper fish per hour fished each time. As usual you will catch 5-6 non keepers for each keeper you boat.

On two of the days I ran all over the North end of the lake. The other days I never got more than 1/2 mile from the marina. Caught the same amount of fish each day. (Wonder why I wasted so much gas) hmmm

Fish definitely preferred light colored large baits. (2.5"-3")

hang some old window sashes off the corners into the water when the wind is blowing.

Good to see you today Ernest. You are practically giving the other motor away over in the classifieds. Great deal!

I FISHED TODAY USING THE NEW TROLLING MOTOR. Worked great but there was no wind. Should be better on windy days.

Fished for 3 hours, caught 60 fish with 15 keepers. All fish were black crappie and the largest was only 12", most 10.5"-11". Big whites were absent today.
