Do you know what second place is? First-fucking-loser.I find it a bit odd the guy hits the shore at what appears to be 50+ mph, in a bass boat, so I assume has got an outboard and all he looks at is some bag/fishing equipment on the bow, plucks a few rocks and a weed/twig from the floor and then proceeds to head on out, he didn't even look at the side of the boat or the motors prop/lower unit.
Them bass guys are serious about getting a Big Mouth.
Those are a couple of Yee Haw! moments right there..... Never got why these guys need to get to next fishing hole so damn fast. Burning daylight I guess.
Thanks, makes sense.... I knew there had to be some explanation for these big motors on bass boats.they only get so many hours and the starts are staggered. If I guy pulls an early boat start number they often times have to report back early in the day to make weight. They often times have to put on miles to get to the fish.
BCB put a 400 on one. Issue is these guys for the most part pin them at redline point a to point b without a care in the world....and most have the driving skills of a elderly man with dementia...think of Joe Biden level competency..The 'glory days' of performance bass boats are pretty much over . . . especially since the heavy-slob 4-strokes have been force-fed to the masses.
He was'nt anywhere near 80, 60-65 yes. The dumbest customers I deal with are "professional" bass fisherman.I guess most of the higher end "bass" boats like Ranger Skeeter etc can hit over 80mph. and then some. There is big money in them fishy tournaments. But back to Mr. Shore Runner, wasn't he running a bit much to the left and around a corner? what if there was a boat coming the opposite direction and they were staying to the right, could have been REALLY interesting. I bet the guy knowing he had his GoPro videoing felt the need to run harder than common sense. Of course, its easy to speculate and point out all the errors. Lord knows I've made some bone head moves in my day.
All down hill from there. Been there.When I first bought the Miller it had some crate motor with a single carb tunnel ram and junk internals.
No Speedo, but it would be a stretch to think it even hit 50 mph.
First time out Deb and I were going
WOT across Shasta and a Skeeter came by us pinned at probably 80+...2 guys with beverages in hand and staring at our flashy and slow tug boat.
We got home and Debbie said “do what you gotta do, we can’t get passed by fishing boats...”
That’s what started it all.
Bass fishing got me into "fast boats" I hated the politics of tournaments, got into the powerboat stuff over time and never looked back. Only rod I own now is my kid's fishing poles. I don't miss it one bit. I smile when I pass them like they are standing still thoughWe got home and Debbie said “do what you gotta do, we can’t get passed by fishing boats...”
