1. What kind of boat do you currently own?
An old 24ft 1978 Harris Flote Bote converted into a catfishing boat. It's not the prettiest toon on the water, but I've put a lot of time and effort into fixing it up.
2. What is your favorite thing about it?
The open layout and stability really makes it great for fishing. I have no fixed furniture other than a single pedestal seat behind the console. All other seating is just patio chairs that can be moved out of the way easily when a big fish is on.
3. What is your dream boat?
I would have to say a custom built 24ft triple toon with aluminum decking, under skinning, and set up like a center console with a 150 outboard. An optional full enclosure and side scan sonar would also be mandatory.
4. Share a fun/exciting boating memory:
Last spring my oldest son Quinn, 12 at the time, and I fished for just a couple of hours and boated over 100lbs of catfish, including a 30lbr he reeled in and a 54lbr that I reeled in not 5 minutes later. It was non-stop action as soon as the baits hit the water. We were pretty much baiting one rod while reeling another in.
5. What is the must have boating accessory?
A good fishing buddy! lol. Seriously though, a good anchor and rope that sets quick and easy is a must have for any pontoon boat.
6. How long have you been boating?
About 10 years
7. Where do you typically boat?
99% of the time I'm on the James and Appomattox rivers here in Va.
