Default Worth it?

http://knoxville.craigslist.org/spo/4753424384.html


Guy on the TN fishing forum is selling this. Christmastime, it would be a super selfish gift for myself... But is it worth it?

Or should I just f***Ing wait til Feb and put this extra money into a boat?

Open water here most of the year, random 3-4 day spurts of fishable ice on small ponds...

I'm thinking of saving the cash and buying $250 more boat when my CD matures and I can cash it out in Feb.

i would. $250 isnt that much in she scheme of things. if you get sick of it you can always re-sell it. and its probably a half decent workout when you take it out.

If you didnt fish with Buck so much i would say go for it!! Toons are great tools to have to easily get you on the water..... Only 1 man though so no room for the kid(s).

Also a real good price on this port a bote if it's in good shape. Folds flat to transport. Have a friend with one and he loves it.

Its a good deal, but I don't see you going out enough (without buck) to get your use out of it, I'd save up for a decent boat

True... I'd like to get out alone from time to time... But taking Buck fishing is almost as much as giving the wife some quiet(er) time as it is about catching fish.

Sure would be nice to get out with the Lowrance unit and some ice rods and try for those suspended perch in Monterey lake on it though... Mmmmmmmmm....... Perch.....

I say save up for a boat. That Porta boat has custom seats. I have one and I only used it twice. It's like a waterbed when you stand in it.
