I had been jonesin' for a bigger boat ever since I bought my first one. I am a big guy and not as young as I was, and wanted something with more space and more stability in the cockpit. I bought a lightly used Tracker Pro Guide V16 'WT' (walk through) windshield.
I love it!
I had an iPilot and a new bigger fish finder fitted, and today was launch day out at Lake Lavon, my local lake.
A bit of a foggy start to the day.
Fresh bait was snagged in the Marina, but slim pickings.
And off we go. The boat runs well and sips gas.
It's not everyday you spot fish stacked up like this!
A nice 5-10mph breeze from the south, so baits were hooked and rods were cast, and I drifted 4 rods with great expectations.
I couldn't get a bite... Two drifts and 90 minutes later and I upped to go fish another spot. I started getting bit but could tell they were dink bites. Aaaaand I'm on!
A huge bluecat monster, that must have weighed at least 3 pounds lol!
I caught a few more fish but all small 'box fish' as CFT likes to call them.
No matter, a good day on the water and the new boat was great.
Those big cats will just have to wait for another day...
