    If you were going to put together a true Ohio Cat boat what would you want ?
    We could come up with a million combinations but let's just stick to a big River style boat for 3 guys,a good sized bait tank & gear.
    What can't you live without & what's just for being comfy?

    uglykat23 duuuuhhhuuuuuhhhhh

    gotta have a radio thats number 1 on anyones list

  3. some quality rodholders and a sturdy rack to hold them.
    A decent fishfinder, one that can show you the structures you need to be fishing
    a spare battery and anchor/rope
    The Bimini top certainly came in handy one day about 6 weeks ago in the driving freezing rain!!

    Most important, a good dependable motor

  4. 1 more thing, if your building, get a all welded floor, if you have to go with a carpeted floor, better get a big floor mat to collect all the blood, slime and scales and mud, thats real blessing in my boat.

    I just got a 1957 Glasspar that I'm going to restore/modify for catfishing.
    I'll post pictures this spring as I get the work done.
