Alright everyone...Im heading down to Allen to pick me out a new Tracker boat.

The wife gave me a green light and this will be my first full size bass boat.

Im so excited, I can barely stand it.

Any advice while Im on my way down?!?! Probably gonna go after the 175 TXW TE. If too much, Ill slide down a little. But not TOO far down.

Get a spot lock trolling motor before you leave

Things to think about. 1) Spare tire for the trailer, 2) Some sort of fish finder up front near the trolling motor. 3) Upgrade of trolling motor (sometimes what they offer just isn't enough power to push the boat) 4) Get a transom saver and straps to secure the boat on the trailer.

Congratulations. Have fun.

Trolling motor with spot lock. They catch more fish than any bait, guaranteed.

Recommend a spare Trailer Hub as well.

Get at least a 24V Trolling Motor. Upgrading from 12V to 24V is one of the best things we ever did.

Congratulations!
