RASKAL,

Thanks for that, the way I fish this rig works better for me than anythings else out there. I like this little toon so much I sold my 20' Edgewater with a 200 HP Yamaha on the back, this is less haasle and a lot less work and expense.

Northwest River Supply (NRS) builds the toon, I added a custom motor mount and 2.5 HP 4 stroke Suzuki. I trailer the toon on a small 5'X8" trailer which makes it easy to launch and retrieve. Fuel burn is about 12-15 ounces per outing and it only weighs 30#, a lot less than a battery and NO CHARGING every night.
Hope this helps.
Bill

I see a wheel on the front of the toon. Is that a custom dolly or something else?

Shoe2,
It's a dolly I built from some garden buggy wheels with a steel axle.
I put the axle under the back two pontoons, strap them on with two bungee's and then just wheel it to the water..

Anteroman, Do you use an anchor setup when you cut the motor? I have an inflatable Kaboat setup with an old 2hp honda but I have such a shallow draft that I get blown off my spot quite easily.

Thanks

Buck_Wheat,
Unlike most of my fish friends, I prefer to slowly move around an area just kicking with the fins until I find some fish or the wind starts to blow, (Over 5-8 mph) then I drop the anchor. I use a 10# dumbell available at most sport shops and Wal-Mart, if that won't hold me it's probably time to head home. My pontoons are flat on the bottom so the boat moves quite easily when the wind starts.
