We will fish from this 2009 Blue Wave 22ft Classic
powered by a 2011 Yamaha 200hp 4-stroke and
MinnKota Ultera trolling motor with iPilot.
She's fully equipped with two Garmin standard sonar units
and two Garmin Panoptics LiveScope sonar units
and all the crappie poles and casting rods you'll ever need.
She's custom built to fish 4 adults comfortably and up to 6 with children
She's wide and stable with room to move around.
That's why her name is "Fat Bottom Girl 2."

Fishing isn't the only reason to hire a fishing guide.
Observing wildlife, water foul and the majesty of mother nature's beauty top the list of things to do.
