Are you familiar with Bruce Condello - I imagine you are? I have four ponds near his spread - we should hook up one of these days and sling some bullgills together. Keep me in mind as weather warms...everyday is getting longer! Sweet!
Yes you use a trolling moter. The boats are molded plastic and manuver well but are pushed around on windy days. Float tubes look interesting to me. I like the portability. I live in on the boarder of Mexico where there's lots of snakes, so I don't know if a float tube would be so smart down here.
If only I had Mondays off...Sundays will work fine though.
I figure next weekend it will be on. I'll have to drive us out to Summit some Sunday in May for the monsters. Lots of fish over 8" in that lake right now, and I know all the spots. I have had 100+ fish days out there.
