Default My new bait runner

So, I was at lunch with some friends the other day. One of them mentioned a zodiac style boat for taking bait way out. He's had luck on big sharks in the winter with 700+ yard drops.

I came home and came on here and remembered seeing this for sale. The guy lowered the price substantially . So I jumped on it.

Added a rear light, 55lb thrust trolling motor and battery of course. I think this lil thing will move. Can place bait so much faster and more lines if need be.

Also, thought about attaching some sort of ring and running the line through it and just following the line out and checkin bait like that. Kind of like checking a trotline.

We'll here she is. Testing it out this weekend.

Yup. It's all coming along. Reels are freshly spooled, new bait runner and I got a hunting blind to get out of the cold and wind.

If any of your buddies want to get one I have a 12 foot inflatable with a fiberglass hull and a reasonable offer can have it.
