    I have an 85 Fisher Marine Bass Boat. All I've done since I purchased the boat in September of last year is cat fish. Anyone have a similar fish buggy that they've rigged up for catfishing? Just looking for ideas.

    Thanks a million.

    A friend of mine has an 82 Fisher Marine 16' boat we turned into a catfish boat. We ripped the carpet off of the decks, covered the decks and floor with plywood, recessed a 120 quart cooler in the rear deck for a livewell and added rod holders. It leaks alot, but it has had tons of fish put in it. I wouldn't doubt if it had 10000 hours on it. It is pretty much shot now, but I bet that 9000 hours are running the Mississippi River. It has been shown no mercy, and for being 25 years old, it has been a good boat for a riveted boat.
