hehe

Test run with the Jon boat today at the new Carroll County Tn lake. All is good. Scanned parts of the lake. Justa joy ride, no fishing. Sun was so bright we didn't do much picture snapping. Couldn't see the picture button on the Iphone. Not many folks out. Must be the football plague.

Glad to see y'all wearing life preservers. Can't believe the looks and questions I still get from my peers when I suggest they wear one. They basically are saying "I'd rather drown than wear one". Makes no sense to me.
Like your setup, stick steering is starting to sound better and better to me. Tired of all that getting up and down.

Lots of cover on this new lake. We found fish concentrated in several areas 15-25 ft range. Northwest of power line pylon is a channel.

I like the fooball (not mis spelled) plague. Keeps some of the crazies off the water. Absolutely love super bowl day, ramps are ghost towns. Glad the shakedown was uneventful. It has been extra pretty this past week.

My next boat will be stick steer as well.

Depends on where we go fishing.

Does that mean some places the Pondtoon doesn't work so good? I thinking about getting one and that will be the only boat I have!!

No. I just don't want to scratch the pondtoon up in the trenches and backwaters. I have had a Jon boat of some type since I was 16 yrs old. Handy boats.

Thanks for all your help! I am setting here right now waiting for Steve to call me about building a PONDTOON, options, layout and pricing. As soon as I can sell my Lund I will order the new one.
