On instagram a few minutes ago I saw Jason Christie backing his new Skeeter boat into his garage.

Also saw Chris Zaldain on his new Nitro.

Have ya'll heard of any other changes?

And again, nobody buys a boat just because a certain pro uses one.

I still catch a lot of bass 47 years of joy.

Zaldain NOT in a Nitro. That was a borrowed boat for the video shoots he did on consecutive days. His Skeeter was delivered and waiting to be rigged.

These guys (and gals) are businessmen. IMO, they will go with whatever company gives them the best deal.
Yes there are features and performance things they want out of a rig, but if someone offers them a huge $$ sponsorship, they definitely tend to lean that way.

Nice boat thumb

I'm still in a 87 Nitro with 87 Pro-V 150. Somehow it still catches fish.



Slide right, coming in .... Fish On!

My '22 BassCat has 53 hours on it, time to start thinking about ordering a '24 model

Wait!? Seriously!? I thought I had to have my Ranger because Ish, Hank, and other Rangers pros told me it was the best boat ever!

Different strokes for different folks.

Some of us have done well and like new shinny stuff. Having an old boat is cool and having a new boat is cool. That is why I think we all need 2 boats!

I asked this about whats his name on Honey Hole. He was in a Phoenix after being Nitro forever. All he talked about is how the Phoenix was so amazing and after a year he is back in a Nitro, which are complete junk IMO. But he will go on about how awesome his Nitro is. It just proves its all about the money and nothing more. Go buy what you like and fish out of it. I am loving my boat after so many said I wouldn't. It has some negatives but it has been my favorite boat to fish out of.

The Nitros are great boats to fish out of, run well in rough water and have great storage. If you only had to run a boat for a year at a time, it is as good as most out there.
