Have the power to fish longer with today’s equipment

When I think about the evolution of fishing boats, it’s mind-boggling. In the early days of my fishing career, guiding and chasing the tournament trails, my fishing boat was a pretty simple outfit. It measured 16 feet, had a 40-horse outboard, a 12-volt trolling motor and a single flasher for sonar. The only electric accessories were the necessities: navigation lights and a bilge pump. One 12-volt battery ran the whole shootin’ match.
