Live in Lakeland, Florida, where dreams go to die. Have been a jon boater most of my life, but am just now really getting started putting a motor on one. Grew up in SE Indiana but have been down this way for about 15 years.

I have a 21 ft bass boat with a 200 johnson on it, but it's simply just not practical for a lot of the lake and river fishing I do between its size and fuel consumption, not to mention trailering it and dealing with grass, weeds and lillies that are so prevalent in our lakes.

I finally dug out the old 14x32 Quachita I've had laying around forever, and after doing some hmmming and hawing I decided that I wanted something wider and more stable for fishing with the old lady and the kid. Sold it and bought a 14' Polar Kraft and am picking up a SPS Swamp Runner medium kit sometime next week.

I found this place through searching for lighting options and a variety of other challenges that come with small boats.

Anyways, I'm 28 years young, though I feel more like 48 most days,I'm an avid outdoorsman, my fall and winters get spent hunting as much as possible and the rest of the year I spend fishing as much as I can.

I reckon that's enough for now. Thanks for having me.

Welcome! It's nice to have another Florida guy around the site. I'll be over your way next weekend. Not sure where yet but taking a few days to run around and fish.

You use sayings like "hemming and hawing" and "old lady". I can already tell I like you. :-)
