swimbait: I just got off of the phone with a DNR guy there at that lake and asked him about the tagging. He said they first did it in March/April of this year; tagging only Bass 18" and longer. They electro-shocked them over several nights to get a large sample.

He's familiar with the dorsal area tag system but they chose the system where a Bass scale is removed from the Bass's lower side area then an internal anchor is inserted into the skin and into the muscle where it supposedly does no harm. That anchor is smaller than the dorsal type.

Kevin: It is a perfect, small-water boat/platform with room for two; being careful with the casting of treble hook baits/long rods of course. I powered my first one(that I used for 6 years) with a 36# thrust MinnKota Maxxum(expensive but has infinite speed/power control that is better than the 'stepped' kind). It finally crapped(just got noisy but I thought a bearing was about to go) out on me a couple of months ago so I bought a new 40#(the 36'er was more than adequate but I don't think they make it anymore?) Maxxum from Cabelas. I use a Hawker Power Pond gel-type 15 lb(weight) 12v battery but I don't think they are available anymore either Odyssey Battereies has a similar one and is what I would get now.

I have a Humminbird Portable depth finder onboard too. I had to form a soft-metal strap to mount the transducer on to as the suction cup would not grip the pebbled finish of the Basshunter. Everything I've mentioned is up front at the bow so I can pitch or cast with everything within reach or sight.

There is room to carry 8 rigs; four to a gunwale-trough.
