My wife bought a new Fisher 1610 yesterday. We went fishing on Lake Darbonne this morning. This is our first crappie caught in the new boat!:)

Well congradulations are certainly in order for a wife with her own boat. Come to think of it, I have two boats and my wife thinks they are her's too.:confused:

Come to think of it, how did you talk your wife into buying the boat? I ask mine to buy me one and she said.....well, I can't say on here what she said.

She LOVES to fish! We've been looking at boats for about a year now. She got tired of me dragging my feet and told me last week she bought a 1610 with a 40hp 4 stroke Honda. I'm sure she'll use it more than I will! :)

She's got a couple of friends I can introduce you to! They don't like to fish like she does though!
I got real lucky...as my dad says "Even a blind hog can stumble over an acorn once in a while."

Caught 4 more this morning on a beetlespin and electric chicken....

Have a good day!

Yes, it's the stick steer one; we don't see anything we don't like about it yet!

I caught a couple! She most always catches more than I do!

We shoot skeet and she usually outshoots me too! :mad:

We've taken hers out every day since we've had it. Neither of us have found anything we don't like about it yet...
