Good day to all from North Idaho. I’m rehabbing a 16’ Lund laker, I’ve seen a lot of good ideas on the website. Lakes all around me to fish and excited to get started.
Merry Christmas and happy new year

Hello all! I am currently living in TN and have just picked back up fishing after a long break from it. :P I've recently aquired a 1999 bass tracker pro team 175 that I am In the process of restoring and hopefully with some help will have her back on the water by spring! I am excited to read and maybe talk to some of you about going through the process as this is my first boat project!

Hi All!

I’ve been lurking for awhile and finally joined up! I’m in Old Saybrook, Ct and have been kayak fishing some of the local ponds, but have been thinking about another tin boat like I used on the reservoirs back home. Lots of really great info and ideas here, thanks!

Glad to find ya'll

I'm happy to finally take the plunge and sign up for this. I have been snooping these forums for some time now. I'm an almost 40 vet that some how managed to pass engineering school through shear determination and maybe borrowing other peoples answers during test time :shock: Having said that, I never took a class on "how to build a stump thumpin river boat" and I really appreciate all the info I have learned from ya'lls hands on knowledge. You'll find me lurking in the jetjon forums mostly. Please excuse some of my silly questions. sometimes I can be purty smart but I have a tendency to be a burnt light bulb in a pack of crayons :lol:
I'm a respectful, loving kinda guy so if I ever come off cross, It's my keyboard social skills and not my intentions #-o
I have 5 kids, a beautiful wife, and some redneck tendencies that just wont go away!
I'm new to the southern Illinois area so if anyone wants to go fishin, send me a pm! uhh lets wait till this snow melts first though.
Having said that, Lets get the welder and make something we can fish out of!

howdy yall! im just another geriatric that likes to eat fresh fish, so i gotta catch em-- or try to, anyway. originally from louisiana, retired to the ozark mountains of north arkansas. proud to be American and enjoy what little is left of Her. current boat is 1979 fisher marine 15 ft i think. just got it so dont know much about it. my other boat was too hard to get in and out, launch, load, etc, so i swapped it for a smaller one in order to keep fishing. lol
looks like a great forum and i hope to help and also to learn how to fish these deep holes with very clear water.

Hello all.
I’m from Florida. My son and I have been toying around with the idea of getting a Jon boat for the rivers and lakes. We’ve been looking and researching all the possibilities and thats how I came across your forum.
