Re: Breaking That DD Barrier

It took me a long time to break the DD barrier. Figured out last year that if you fish the delta and clear lake as much as possible during pre-spawn and spawn then there's a good chance of catching a bass over 10 lbs. Even if you don't break the 10# mark your gonna catch a bunch in the 5-8 lb class.

Re: 20 Deep V Boat Owners - 150 Four Stroke Enough???

I'm guessing that boat will top out in the low 40's. How fast are you looking to go?
Length will play no part in top end speed. Width and weight combined will probably take a few mph off the top end with what your current boat gets. Heck, being its a new motor it might perform the same.
