New for 2012! Here's the new Carolina Skiff DLV 258 that I'm using

fishing space than prior boats. Its loaded with a 101 lb Thrust
Minn Kota Auto Pilot, Co-Pilot Trolling motor. Lowrance Side Imaging,
down-imaging and Lowrance Conventional Sonar. 20 Quickdraw Rod

OLD BOAT BELOW
he boat that we will be fishing out of is a 23 foot, 6 inch center
console manufactured by Sea Fox, outfitted by Core
Fishing Tackle. This center console has been fully rigged
out for freshwater and saltwater fishing,
but specifically for striper fishing at Smith Mountain Lake. I'm
using a Suzuki 200 HP- four stroke as the powerhouse. This boat
will cruise between 35-45mph and max out at 55-60mph. The Sea
Fox CC has a very deep-V which cuts down on the summer waves at
Smith Mountain Lake. This boat has been flawless and has
been used day in day out without a single issue from the boat.
No broken latches or hatches, no hull cracks or Gel Coat issues.
This boat has a custom filtration system for the onboard 40 gallon
bait tank. Dual Venturi kits, dual filters and dual aerators.
We have installed 19 QuickDraw rod holders. Two 4-Bank On Board
Chargers power the 8 Deep Cycle Batteries.
For finding fish we have an HDS-10 High Definition Sonar/Chartplotter
with an additional Structure Scan Module added to provide 3D Side
to Side Sonar Scanning. Beside the HDS-10 is an LCX 111 Hard Drive
unit for Conventional Sonar and GPS.
The trolling motor is a Minn Kota 36 Volt, 101 Pound
Thrust, Auto-Pilot, Co-Pilot Remote system.
