A Pontoon Boat Fishing Trip
About 10 years ago, my uncle took me out on a fishing trip. He had a pontoon boat that went about 5 mph, and that was at full speed too! So there was all kind of speed boats, and people on jet skis that were blowing past us. Getting to your fishing spot in a pontoon boat is not the quickest way. It probably is good about getting in a cove though, because you are moving so slow, you will sneak up on the fish.
Even though that boat didn’t go fast, I can remember being on the lake that day so clearly. This was in the middle of summer, and we were having high 90 degree temperatures during the day. We put his pontoon boat on the water while it was getting into the evening part of the day. So the sun was starting to go down, there was a cool breeze through our hair, as we was coasting on the water. The sky was so glowing with a few clouds and the setting sun putting an orange glow on them. It was really something to see. I’m sure that boaters get to see things like that a lot, being out on the water.
As for the fishing part of the trip. We really didn’t catch any during the daylight hours. I think we caught a few small crappie at night, and I caught one catfish with a rod I just had sitting out in the water. It had a worm on it, and I had pretty much forgotten about it, and a few hours later it was bent over, with a catfish on the other end.
Now my uncle doesn’t have that pontoon boat anymore. He’s stepped it up, and has got a faster boat now. He will tell anybody that is interested in buying a boat for the first time, that they better get something they can move around on out there. He really stresses the importance of having a boat that will get you to where your wanting to go. So you don’t waste time out there trolling from one area to another.
Now this new boat can really move that he has now. It’s like riding a car on the water, cause I’m sure it’s doing about 70 mph out there. He does enjoy the new boat better than the pontoon boat. It’s just not made for fishing like the pontoon was, but you can still fish from it. It’s just a little different is all. He takes real good care of it, and has it parked in his garage. Even with the boat in the garage, he still uses a boat cover. So he believes in taking care of his boat. If anyone out there is looking for a new boat cover, then BoatCoversAdvice.com will have any type that you need. I’m hoping I have a boat one day, where I will need a boat cover too!Click here for reuse options!
