    maw has talked about going fishing with me ,but my lil boat was too small for us all..,since we lost our son in oct,25th this year ,me and maw have talked about trying to do more things together ,....so we decided and went and bought us a 21' fishing barge pontoon boat from bp...just finished installing a motorguide 55lb thrust trolling motor with wireless footcontroller and a remote and the depth finder ,we had the engine package upgraded to a 60 hp 4 stroke bigfoot....me and maw plan on spending every pretty day we can out on the water this year....even camp out on the boat overnight now and again.........i love being out on the water on a clear night ....first time ive seen maw really excited about something in a long time .....cant wait to get her hooked up with a 30 or 40lb blue on loudon lake ....

    Sam - Sorry to hear of the loss of your son! The pontoon sounds great! I spend many a night out on the river on my pontoon! I fish till I'm too tired and crawl in the sleeping bag till the morning sun wakes me! Good luck to you!

    Sam, I didn't know about your son. I'm sorry for your loss.

    You and Maw get out there. It sounds to me like you are looking forward to seeing Maw happy, You will be no more happier than when making other happy. Good for you

    Congratulation on the new boat and hope you have many fun day and nights.

    Very sorry to hear that you and Maw lost your son, Sam.

    That's a great plan for you two to spend lots of time together... especially out fishin. Hold each other close and value every minute of it.

    Hope Maw catches that lunker.. please give her hugs from me.
