Pineview report
Had an hr before dark to shoot over to Pineview. I thought maybe with the front coming I might catch Perch or Crappie going on a quick evening feed. Nope. Only the Grebes seemed to be having luck. We had four rods working tipped jigs and double drop shot set ups tipped with worms or gulp minnow. I only had time to try one spot, so tried off the north side of cemetery. Watched a bass boat work the rocks over without success.

I really need to spend some time at PV and try to figure it out. It tends to mistreat me

What can you tell me about the island boat launch?
Was there anyone taking money? Was it open? How many boats were using it?

The gate was closed when we went by. No signs of life on the other side, but to be fair we were not paying attention for that.

The island boat launch, how would you get on an island to launch a boatWink, LOL, J/K. They close that ramp after the Summer season, unless this new concession group is doing things different. In years past only the Port ramp is open now.

In the past fishing around the docks can be good for crappie. Those black tires help to heat up the water.
Try off the docks if you can.

They do not have out any of the boat docks this year, just barely a corner of one walkway in the waterFrown. We usually mark fish around those docks but did not see any in that area yesterdayFrown

It's a 16ft with a 35 hp 2 stroke. I also have an electric motor for it.

A 35 hp motor is pretty good sized for that boat, it should scoot it across the water pretty good. What kind of work were you doing on your boat?

Ya the 35 moves it well. I had planned on stripping it down and repainting. But, what is likely to really happen owing to time is:

1- rebuild the 35. Done
2- take out the back bench and put a split bench with seat in so I can rotate from poles to motor
3- redo the middle two benches with some nicer seats.
4- take the small front bench out and build a casting platform with storage.
5- rig a better fishfinder set up and add a small sun canopy.
6- add my electric motor to it.
7- add the cookie and cowboy decal and flag
8- misc upgradeds like rod holders, storage, anchor system.

I spend to much time watching youtube videos of how people turned these rigs into eye catching fishing platforms. I think my scope of ideas runneth past my budget and time.

How long have you had this boat? Sounds like you need to get a lot done on it still. Did you rebuild the motor yourself? If so, you should not have much problem getting the rest done. I have some nicer seats that would work on your boat, that I could let you have at a reasonable price. Do you have the fishfinder for your boat yet, if not I can help you with that as well.

I actually have already bought the seats this spring, but thanks. Tells ya how far behind I am on it. I did not do the motor work, but am a certified mechanic, so could have but felt more like fishing and less like wrenching.

I see another member found some size to the Crappie at PV. That is good news, although.
