    I have been watching some fishing shows and have noticed plexiglass extensions on the transom of boats on either side of the motor and was curious if anyone new what this was for? Also have seen some kind of boom next to the motor not sure if this is an antenna for GPS or something for tournament fishing?

    Thanks

    Sounds like splash guards. They're used for backtrolling to eliminate/reduce the impact of any waves over the transom.
    The boom you refered to could be a tiller handle for either the main or an aux. motor.

    The "boom" might be a "power pole" anchor system for shallow water. I've seen it in use on a couple of different fishing shows.
