In other posts I've talked about my catfishing kayak a little , but now I want to know about what makes your boat a great rig for catfishing? I just purchased a 17' Tracker Bass Boat with a 60hp Evinrude. Even though it's not a deep V hull version, I believe I'll feel pretty safe fishing the Ohio river near Cincinnati. My goal is to fish the inlets of the rivers at least a dozen time this summer (work permitting of course :confused2. So a few mods I'm going to do my boat is install LED lights near the bow and stern seats.. since we'll be night fishing from there mostly. I need a way to mount a decent sized net behind me (need to mount PVC vertically and then probably use a bungee cord to lock down the net), and probably a spot light so I can navigate better at night back to the trailer... My first step is that I have to work on the anchors so that I can safely hold myself to one area.. I'm thinking a fluke or ring type anchor with an electric winch in the front and an anchor mate II with a 25lb anchor in the back. (The theory is to drop the main anchor in the front, let it drag along the bottom.. when it connects then manually drop the heavier anchor in the back to hold it steady... just a thought.. any better ideas?). It already has 8 rod holder mounts.. just need to get some decent 3/8" threaded rod holders to screw in (found some interesting ones on Ebay recently). No pictures yet, but once I get it set up, I'll be asking to see if anyone wants to buddy up occassionally and try our luck out there. So anyone want to post pics of their catfish barge?
