Here are a couple of pictures of the fish we caught last week while at a lake. We mainly caught largemouth bass, but a few northern pike were landed.
 
 
 
 
Had a great time with the family, and we all caught fish even though the fishing was slow.

I went from a bass boat to a pontoon boat.  It was sad getting rid of the bass boat as I love to fish, but the pontoon adds more family fun, floating in the water, partys, relaxation, etc...  I have tried bass fishing off the pontoon (24 foot) but if there is any wind, she wont sit still very long and there is no way I am going into the smaller coves, plus the trolling motor is hand powered not foot.  Thinking maybe getting one of those tiny single person pontoon type deals where your feet dangle in the water....that way, someone can leave the party to fish for awhile but be close enough to come back without much trouble...why do all my ideas end up costing me so much money?!....

 Yeah, fishing on a pontoon in the wind can be a little tricky. I will normally troll or anchor, then cast when conditions are real windy.

I also troll or anchor if it gets too windy. I think the lack of control I have with the 55 lb. MinnKota when it gets windy is the main drawback for fishing with my pontoon. I'm thinking of getting a 24V with more power, but not sure if that will really help.

I'll be fishing on my pontoon tommorow. I hope the wind stays calm. I can't wait for some warmer weather. Happy fishing!

I believe 55lb is what my Minnkota is (12V), and it will go against the wind ok. Even on the river against the current and wind it will move along nicely, but the cross wind is what's bad. It's hard to keep the pontoon on a straight heading when there is a cross wind. I even have a tough time when trolling with the big motor. A pontoon is like a bobber on the water, and the wind just blows it around.
