Default She’s ready.

Well the ole Excel F4 duck boat has been officially converted!! I fabricated and welded up an aluminum trolling motor base, got the troller mounted, wired up to 24v, rod holders on and the tackle box loaded up in my stock shares of Berkeley flicker shads and shad raps plus countless crawler harnesses and bottom bouncers! Going to be a fun spring and summer!!

Very nice. Looks like lots of fish to be caught. We found that smile blades were very helpful also. Slow Death Hook, bottom bouncer, 3 beads and smile blade was deadly to lots of fish last summer.

Best for us was Chartreuse, silver, purple haze mirror (I think, or blue mirror). I used various sizes. The would spin with hardly any movement. The slow death hook with the smile blade was a productive combo.

Very nice! Looks like you’re going to need some help with all those slots for rods. Tell me where and when!

Now we’re talking Vanilla!! Two more holders, and two more planer boards and run 3 guys and a six pack of lines a half mile wide!! 😆

Surely something would have to bite, right??
