Most of the good fishing lakes are 5mph/no wake, which is why the 9.9 is so good. There are 2 lakes and the Missouri River (haha don't think I'm going on that in a 14ft with a 9.9.... Or even a 15!!!) That I can go and open it up... But those 2 lakes are mainly full of carp, gar, and catfish.

Tabs, (any tabs), on the other hand do not kill speed. They do maximize the slow speeds with which you can plane; stop porpoising; get you up on plane quicker, and smooth the ride. Guess I like them, huh!

I don't know if I'm ready to sink the $ into tabs! Sheesh!

If I were you, I'd try the 15.00 foil. It may solve your problem. richg99
