Thunder on the Chain
Thursday night team Bass tournaments.
I should have all the details in order by the end of the week.
If interested please email [email protected] I'm trying to get a boat count so I can get an average of how many boats we may field at each tourny. Thanks Pat

Check in will be from 3:00 till 3:50 then a 10Minute meeting to go over rules and pull numbers for a start position then we're off a 10 second intervals. Do you have a boat or need a partner with a boat? I'm going to try to find out what guys with boats may need a partner and who needs a ride. I am really trying to get this together I think these will be fun tournaments. I may be able to set up a small 12" boat we have with a 5 hp and a small trolling motor and fish finder so that maybe someone can get out on the water to try.

Theres a guy on craigs list that has an old coleman cradad like your boat for $225.00 I was thinking about going to look at it,I think it would be great for Busse,Beck and some of the local lakes and ponds. Is your boat pretty stable,can you stand and cast in it?

Oh by the way thats a very neat looking little boat. I dont beleave in the big fast glass bass boats. I've never seen a boat catch a fish yet,I understand if your fishing tournaments and are running 50 miles to get to your spots,But if your fishing the Chain my boat that does 35mph does just fine and it wasnt $40.000 to spend 3/4's of its life in the driveway or garageI also figure if your running around at 10mph or 70mph your still not fishing,you have to have a line in the water to catch fish.

It's fine...9" very stable I got it just for the local FP lakes that allow boats.
I have a small 3hp and a trolling motor and fishfinder. 2 people is a bit cramped but not bad(beats fishing from shore) :wink: I just got it at the
end of last year. Augy and I went out to Busse with Aris (he had his boat)to give it a test go... worked just fine. Looking forward to getting out alot this year.

The first tournament is tomorrow the weather isnt going to be that great but I'm going out anyway just in case fishermen show up it wouldnt be to Good to not be there for the first tournament. I hope a few show up but its only going to be in the high 30's so we'll see if no one shows up i will reschedule it for a later date.
