My new boat...

Recommended Posts

Well, it's a canoe!  Going tonight to pick it up after finding it online,  it's ain't the prettiest but for a 14 footer it was the best deal I could find.  

With a 5 month old baby, and not a whole lot of time to use it or money for a jon boat, I went ahead and made a deal on a canoe.  

Hell, it's got to be better then fishing from the shore when I do get out.  Maybe I'll even get some nice seats for it :)

Thanks Aluma

Just got in with it, 14ft, fairly lightweight.  Sears Freestyle?  Probably old as crap but it floats! :)

Some people think it takes a 21 footer with a 250 on it to catch fish. They have 10 rods and reels they paid 400-600 each for.  But all you need is to be on the water with a line in. The gear and the boat dont catch *****.

Thats true but the nice equipment does help ;)

Took her out for her maiden voyage today after work, almost lost it on 288....Apparently we had an issue securing it.  

Were on Swift Creek Reservoir for about 2.5 hours, I got a little bass on a yamato worm...Not even worth posting that picture.

Will do Simon.  Was looking at the yaks but my wife was anti me being out all day alone, like a canoe is that much better!

I enjoyed it the first time I got out, had only ever been in a 16ft canoe a handful of times with a friend and the larger ones are def. more stable!
