I bought one years ago to use at Aurora never did though becuase Aurora res has a no model boat policy for thier lakes. Kinda silly you cannot use a electric model boat on Atown.when it is electric only lake.. Gave it away two days ago.
Look up "Baits boats" on You tube They use them in the UK for carpin and cattin They use them as dump trucks to dump bait and drop the hooks right on the bait they unloaded. They have shore to boat Fishfinders and I have even seen them with wireless cameras to watch thier bait and to find a locations without weeds to dump the bait.
Lews boat is the right size for something like that.
I built a hydroplane ( Pay N Pak) a few years back and used it on a private pond. I towed a mepps spinner behind it just for fun and as luck would or would not have it in this case a trout grabbed it and yanked it around just enough to pull it under and stall it out. Here it was stalled out in the middle of the pond so I grabbed my rod and tied a big sinker to it so I could cast out and retrieve it. Well the line fell short, the sinker hit the deck and put a hole through it. No fish. Ruined boat. Great laughs for awhile. Then reality set in.
