    Guys and Gals,
    Here's a picture of my new Catfishing Machine. It's not brand new, but it's new to me. 2005 Tracker Targa Deep-V. It's 18'-6" of catfishing pleasure powered by a 90 hp Mercury. I've got it rigged up with plenty of driftmaster rod holders, Lowrance fish finder, Lowrance color GPS unit loaded up with the Hot Spot topographic lake maps. This boat can handle just about anything Lake Lewisville can dish out, including some of those huge wakes made by the boats that are worth more than my house. It has a passenger side console and walk-thru windshield. This provides plenty of comfort for all on board when the temperatures cool off a bit. It also has 4 comfortable fishing chairs for riding and fishing. No need to stand while making a run to the fishing grounds or changing locations. The deep-v style with high sides also makes it a great boat for children

    Thanks guys. It got broke in just fine this weekend and got a little slime as well. It will drat fairly shallow. With engine up it will float in less than 18" of water. I got it up to 42 mph with a light load and 37 mph with a full tank, 3 guys, 3 gallons of DK's, cooler full of fish and a bucket of chum. It cruises nicely at 30 mph. Full consumption should be nice with the 90 on the back.
