one of our group caught a 13lb fish back in the thick stuff on a trip to guerrero several years ago and that inspired all of us to go back in the thick stuff........didn't catch one that big but my son and I caught several 5-7 lb fish back there..this is what my boat looked like after a day back in the brush...
got another picture someplace that I tried to find....it's a picture of that red ranger boat that turned gray after a trip down that road to tigers creek launch ramp on Falcon....that alkaline dust won't come off at the car wash...I had to take my boat home and scrub it off with a sponge and soapy water...

Thats why I have a solid white boat. Scratches and dust don't show as bad grin

agree with your choice of colors....had a sponsorship/demo boat deal with OMC/Javelin for several years and when OMC/Javelin folded,my dealer had this new 2 year old boat sitting on his lot and offered it to me at his cost...I didn't want a red boat but the price was too good to pass up...

That's what my boat looked like a few years ago when Falcon filled up past full after decades of low levels. Going back into the new flooded brush on the Mexican side had us coming out each time looking like you were stealing a cord of firewood. Can't buy a boat and then not go fish where the fish are.

Always, it's a bass boat not a pleasure cruiser!

this is pic I mentioned in my original post.....my boat was nice and shiny until the wind on falcon forced us to launch in tiger creek for 2-3 days that week....note the wet spots under trolling motor head where water dripped down..I stopped at a car wash on the way home and all that did was lighten it up a little....had to use soapy water and sponge to scrub that alkali dust off....
p.s. we caught hell out of the fish that week in 2009..bass were on the bed and magic depth was 6 ft....drop a mag lizard down in a bush at that depth and hang on...

That's what they're for , mine is like that almost every time I go out , it is made to catch fish and bring you back to the ramp .

I'll admit it. It bothers me, anytime I put a scratch on my boat. I'm that guy that cleans his boat after every trip and sprays it down with Lucas Quick Wax. banana
I'll go where the fish are and cringe the whole time I hear rubbing and scratching.
