Take 2 aspirin, lie down, put cool wet cloth over your eyes, see if the feeling will go away.

One other thing.
Why do guy's spend big bucks on go fast boats then fish the shore? If you're going to fish the shore, why not save the dough and fish from the bank?

With all that extra cash, you can take the family out to a really nice seafood restaurant once a month. And I don't mean Red Langostino.

Some lessons can't be taught.

If you're talking about bass boats it's because they only have so much time to fish in a tournament. Time spent motoring to the hot spots is time spent not catching fish. The same goes for pretty much any tournament fisherman.

$4k can buy you a lot of trouble. This one started out at $3500. I thought I'd be able to free up the steering. Wrong. Needed a new steering cable, carb work, a few engine parts, hull repairs (aluminum welding), trailer tires, trailer lighting, etc. I'm embarrassed to say what I have tied up in it now. I put a 8hp Honda on the transom as a backup engine when I go fishing. Be careful what you get into. A used boat was someone else's problem.

No, I don't mean tourney fishers, just your everyday fisherman.

In that case they're delusional. They think they're Bill Dance.

I actually thought about that, mostly cause the ones with a bed underneath might allow me to make some stories for the man cave haha
