wow that sounds great what time is lunch may have to stop by myself if i am up the river crappie fishing i know there is some nice sandy beaches across from the high banks .
that would be great to beach the boat with room for the kids to swim and play while you are slaving over the hot cooker.

I smell the burgers now !!!!! LOL.


That sure is great to have the time to spend with the kids can't get better than that.

Thanks SK I've had it almost a year but shortly after buying it the motor blew, I finally got it rebuilt so I'm back on the water. I fish for whatever will bite, I love catching large mouth on artificial bait, but I grew up catching cats. I've been fishing for crappie recently, only got one and alotta bass(I need a trolling motor) I couldn't buy a crappie but anyways thanks!

SWEET BARGE ! I would love have one as a second boat to play on the lake with. I also would like to add my own personal touches as well as a killer sound system. I think that pontoon boats are great to get all of the familly together for a day on the lake. You can get a great deal off of craig's list on at trolling motor. Are you going to put your handle on it so we know who you are ?

Nice boat. I would like to pet a pontoon boat for my first MOTORIZED vessel. I like the room. Can you pull anyone tubing or anything in them? I am not to familiar with them, but it would seem like something I would like.

Thanks dead bait, the sound system is also in the works I've got about half of it! I agree on pontoons being great for the family I can haul 12 people. I've seen a few trollers on cl but can't let go of the money for some reason even though I need it. I plan on getting some custom graphics soon I've got a guy giving me a quote on Monday so I guess we will see. If I get them everyone will know who I am it will be totally different than any toon on the lake......thanks again

Thanks joshcad85, Pontoons are great boats, you can do whatever your into. I pulled a tube alot last year, it's very fun! My boat does 30mph with a Johnson 112.... If you get one, get the BIGGEST motor you can afford. They make pontoons now that will run 70mph+ if you want to spend the $60,000 to buy them!!!!!

If I was in the market for a toon it would have to be a tri-toon. They sit higher on the water and don't squat in the rear as bad. My nephew and I almost bought one a couple of months ago. It was a 24 footer that had been stripped down to the all aluminum deck. The guy only wanted $1000 bucks for it including the tandem axle trailer. We're still kicking ourselves in the a-s for not buying it.

Cool, I will have to check it out. My wife has been wanting to get a boat ever since I bought my kayak. Well, she wants a boat and a kayak for her. Which is cool that she is interested in both now. I just have to work my butt off to pay for both, but it will definitely be worth it. Me and my wife out there tearin up some bass... :lol: :lol:
