    its a small remote control boat that lets you stay down river at the dams and run your line up to the dam and yes i have one but i use a rod and reel to bring mine back.just couldnt afford the remote control unit.

    Jesse, I have been using then for more than 20 years below Keystone.I don't use one any more so mine will be for sale at the Keystone gathering. My Penn114H and 345GT1 will also be for sale.I may also bring a couple of rods to sell unless I sell them before the gathering. Allen

    WOW! 400 yards?!?! That is a long way. What is the capacity on your reel? That has to be the size of a car wheel. Is it hard to even feel a bite, much less set the hook, that far away?

    as to your / about line capacity. my boat reel is a peen 6/0off shore reel that will hold 600 yds of 80# dacron. my bait poles are rigged with okuma cv45ls that will hold about 380yds of 30# trilene big game. as for feeling the bite, i use 3 foot long corks so i can see the bite and circle hooks so they pretty much hook themselves

    Now you got me interested. About how much do those RC boats cost, and what's a good one for a beginner?

    joe, i dont run a rc boat,hence the name line boat. all that means is you use a rod n reel too drive the boat. the boat delivers the bait and cork as far as your equipment is capible. as far as cost goes, you need a trolling motor and a battery. the boat itself was made from stuff i found at work.

    I think it's a pretty neat idea, but beware that some states, Missouri for example, have made them illegal. The gadget nut in me has always wanted to build one, but I wouldn't get to use it around here too much.
