Come on now.....There is NO bass boat that is gonna make it in 6-8 footers. Somebody please show me some pictures of 6-8 footers in a southern resevoir anyways! My 24' DOESN'T do all that well in honest 3-4ft slop

Lol don’t think most on here how to measure height of a wave .
I too would like to see video of these masters of bass boating in true 6 to 8 ft waves lmao.

6 to 8 footers? roflmao


Right roflmao I have fished For 45 years on many lakes nationwide and have seen real 5 footers ONE time. On Lake Erie which is basically a small ocean. And I thought I wasn’t going to make it in.
Very very seldom a lake in Texas might get some 3 footers but it would be rare. Anyone who thinks they have run in 3 footers needs to go to the coat and fish offshore in true 3 footers, they will say they are 6 footers.

6 to 8 footers? roflmao

They are rare indeed, but it (more likely ~6') can happen sometimes when "a perfect storm" lines up with the length of a reservoir. Many who make these estimates have not been on truly "big water" - the Great Lakes or an ocean. I would say that the thing that makes inland waters most problematic is the frequency of the waves. The short distance from peak-to-peak insures a very rough ride, and the risk of spearing waves, even in 3 footers. The choppiness is far worse than (saltwater) offshore swells that are much larger, but much lower frequency. I got plenty of experience running the Ft. Lauderdale inlet and the Atlantic, so I know what 6, 8, and even 10 footers look like - from a 32 foot dive boat. I don't see those waves repeated when I fish reservoirs.
