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
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. Bill
