    Default Bit the Bullet

    Did the research...made my choice...found a solid dealer that was willing to take the time and work with me ( stay away from Harris Boatworks on the south side of Rice Lake )...and placed an order for a new boat. I want it to be turn key. No aftermarket installs, so I need your help. This is all new to me. The trolling motor and fish finder have been chosen, it's the other things I have no idea about. Accessories. What would you add if cost was not a factor.
    The world is 70% water, might as well fish it.

    Smooth moves seat bases. The best option I bought! If your a troller, running planer boards. A rod holder tree on each side. I have a big jon. Slowly switching out everything to cisco holders.

    Depends where you will be fishing, Rice lake is very different to the great lakes where redundancy will be the key to safety. Having a GPS unit backed up with a map and compass (map is required if off-shore), two batteries and a separate trolling motor with its own fuel tank would be up on my list. There have been a few times I have come back under power of the trolling motor when the main motor died, and navigated by GPS due to thick fog.

    mostly depends on you what someone else suggests may not be right for you once you get a couple times you will start finding out what things that will make your fishing easier, make a list and slowly add on good luck and enjoy

    I think size of boat has something to do with what you can add in the way of perks.

    Bilge pump with an "auto" and a "on" setting.
    Most come with just an "on" setting.
    "Auto" allows you to leave the switch on but the pump only turns on when in senses water.
    I would stay away from the "float" type. I like the one that has a sensor.
