Well I think I'm going to start getting ready for a new boat this spring. I'll be selling my current boat soon. What I'm looking for is a 16-18 foot boat. I would love a Tracker Targa, but will prob settle for something like a Tracker Pro Guide 16. I want to be able to handle the Ohio River next year and prob a trip to the James River once and a couple trips to the Cumberland. I don't have the $ to get a $20K boat, so I have to be realistic. I've seen a couple Tracker Pro Guide 16's 2000-2003's sell for the $6-7K range. I figure I can get close to $3k for my boat, so I won't be that far away $ wise. I'll prob sell several cat rods and reels in order to help and then by the time the tax return comes, look out Ohio River Tourney's (someone has to come in last palce, right? I'm your man! ) Anyways, I will need to have a large enough livewell to keep 6-8 large cats, unless I use a sick or soft cage, etc.... If anyone has suggestions, please let me know. I am not looking for something that I can take to the Ohio in flood stages and the such, as I will start slow and get a feel and respect for the OHio before I hit it hard.
