SAVING SPACE?


Recommended Posts

I have a 16' boat with a side console. I will be fishing three this weekend(2 adults and one child). I am thinking of ways to have the most space as possible. My question is can I have only 2 seats( driver and one other) or do I have to have a seat for everyone? I was thinking my son could sit on the floor while we are moving.

There is no law that states you have to have a seat for every person on a boat. You can have 1 seat and everybody else sit on floor, it's not a problem.

Just be sure lifejackets are worn, looks like this weekend we'll get stong winds, and a good chop.

I hope that they never change that law! I only have 2 "seats" in my 17 foot jon boat. However, the quality of seat that you have when you fish with me depends on the lawn chair you brought along for yourself. I learned early on that making good hole shots was not a good thing if all your guests are in unsecured chairs!

That reminds of a time when I was trying to stay in the boat while sitting on a cooler in a buddy's boat on Millelacs one time while scooting across the lake. That's hard when the cooler is jumping around and your jumping around while hitting the waves. grin.gif

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Welcome to the forum. Buying clothing and gear for outdoor activities is part of the fun! 🙂

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
