  • Little boats can be a big...

    For a while now I’ve been having a ball fishing out of my “little” boat. By little, I mean a boat, actually a baby pontoon-style, that’s four feet by eight feet.
    This is little compared to my “big” Nitro and its 200 horsepower gas engine. The baby boat is powered by a small trolling motor.
    My baby boat goes by several names depending on the manufacturer. It’s a pond-hopper, bass boat, pelican, etc.
