Hello Folks, FNG from Crestview Fl here. I grew up in Tournament Bass Fishing with my Father. He was alway driven to be the best. I guess thats a good quality to have, but It kinda burnt me out on fishing for a long time. The long 2-3 day pre-fishing ritual spending 10 - 12 hours on the water was a bit much for me. So now I'm a 2-4 hour lets go get breakfast or lunch kinda fisherman. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy it. I ran a charter boat out of Destin for a few years. Now I'm strictly recreational. I own an Old Glasstream Bass Boat thats kinda small, but it still looks good and does the job. I also have a 24 Laguna SeaRay. Yeah I can hear y'all now a "SeaRay isn't a fishing boat". Yes it is, It's the wretched child of the SeaRay line with outboards and everything. lol But my latest obsession is small water fishing. I recently picked up a nice used, unmodified Pelican Bass Raider 10e. I have a small pond out back, and LOTS of small ponds all over the area. Elgin Air Force base has lots of electric only lakes that are only accessible with a 4 wheel drive. Black Water State forest has several as well. Hunting for information on the Bass Raider is how I found this sight. I'm looking forward to spring time fishing lake Juniper. It's a flooded timber lake that holds some really nice fish for those who dare to launch their boats. My little 17' does pretty well, but I think the Raider will shine in lakes like that. I'm tempted to take it down the Shoal river. With a little vehicle pre staging I can Launch the boat at the Hwy 90 Bridge on the North end of town Have my wife take my truck to the hwy 85 landing on the south end of town. Fishing my way down river. Its been years since I've made the trip. I won't put my bass boat in that river. My tiller steer river boat is long gone. Anyway nice to be here, lots of good info on this sight.
