I got stopped by the Game Warden, after loading my boat on the tralier. He said that any size boat operated by a hand tiller motor everyone needs to wear a life jacket while boat is under power. I thought is was Class A vessels only 16' or less. My boat is 18' long with a gator tail. Does anyone know what the rule is?????????
Late post from our Red fishing trip to Venice this past weekend. Limited out both days on dead shrimp under cork.
Mixed Bag on Thanksgiving day. 9 Grays, 1 Ring Neck, 1 Mallard, 3 Teal, 2 Widgeon, 2 Wood Ducks & 3 Hooded Mergansers.
Looking at buying a new mud motor. I hunt in farily deep water from 3' to 10'. ( No Mud ). Problem is the water lillies has taken over, under the water lillies is clear water, no thick grass. On an 18' boat blind w/ 3 people , 80 lb dog & gear, which mud motor will peform the best in these conditions?? 35 HP long Tail or 35 HP surface Drive ( Gator Tail ect.... ) Also, which motor if you were to stop in the middle of a thick patch of water lillies would have less problem getting out of ???
