My name is Ryan. I'm looking forward to chatting with you all about fishing and MB in general! I have lots to learn but willing and excited about it
I grew up fishing at Victoria Beach where you usually just throw off a pickeral rig and wait for a perch to swallow the hook completely or reel up the occasional silver bass, catfish or pickerel. So... pretty limited in techniques!
I just bought a 17 foot speed boat. A seahawk. Whatever the hell that is! 125 hp motor on the back. I went with this guy because I want to take my son tubing and water skiing this summer but also want to go out fishing quite a bit. It's definitely no fishing rig but with the open bow I figure I can get a few guys on here fishing no problem. I've attached a few pics of it. If you see me out and about on it, make sure you say hi!
Hooking up some cup holders and a fish finder to it. Little nervous about drilling into fiberglass since I've never done it before and more nervous about putting the transducer in the wrong spot. Hopefully I nail it. I've watched some youtube vids.... some helpful, some not.
Planning a trip to West Hawk Lake (most likely) when it warms up a tad. I promised him we would do a bunch of camping trips and bring the boat out so if anyone knows some good camping spots for fishing that have a boat launch at the campground (or close by) let me know!
So far my plans are: Drop the boat in the water at Maple Grove Park and take some of the guys to the Pony on pembina for a bite to eat. After that is a blur for the summer!
I look forward to chatting in the future. Thanks for having me
