Beach Pond OPEN
« on: August 06, 2010, 06:35:36 PM »
Hi guys, new to the site. I'm holding a T on Beach Pond Voluntown CT ramp. T hours are from 5pm-1am, on September 25th 2010. Trolling motors only, 10 boat/13 vehicle limit, teams or singles format, 5 fish limit. $25 per person entry fee, with a $10 optional lunker pool. 100% pay out, 1st through 3rd depending on the number of entries.

Thanks,

Paul

 After a majority vote, this has been switched to a club members only event.
My sincere apologies,

Paul

 Rich ,  Its a club only tournament that is cradads and johnboats only. I would say none of them have a gas motor anyways!
 So you can forget the 8mph!

Don't hate on small boats Bob, we can fish in spots people wouldn't think of trying to get a bigger boat into especially a glass one.  Plus, I have a 6hp Merc that pushes my 12 footer just fine. :P

Alex, Bob isn't hating on small boats at all. He and I will occasionally take my Crawdad out when we want to fish a place where we can't get a bigger boat into.

He was only talking about the wind due to the fact that it can make fishing from a small boat difficult. That's just a fact. Little boats do get pushed around a lot more when the wind kicks up.

Nobody here is throwing stones at anyone because they have a small boat, a tin boat, a glass boat or even a pontoon boat. People have the boat they prefer to have or perhaps what they can afford to have. It's all good ;)

I have a crawdad, but no way to get it anywhere as of yet. I have to get a hitch for my car and a trailer for the thing. Do not think it strapped to my Jettas roof would be the best way to go here...  :P

Currently I am using my canoe all over the place and I get pushed around by the wind non-stop. It makes it very difficult to stay on the fish (even with an anchor) and casting difficult as well. But I love it because I can get into just about any water I want and I am not afraid of paddling long distances. Just have to work on my "cooler" livewell to fish tourneys in it.  ::)
Don't let that stinking bass get away!!!!!

And larger aluminum boats can float in water that's only inches deep!!

Heck, my 18 foot G3 will float in about 6 inches of water with no problems at all. The only places I can't go are those that require me to get under very low bridges or through very narrow streams  :-\

Switched back to being an OPEN. Any size boat is welcome, but still trolling motors only. ;D
