    Default First Trip in the New Willie

    So I thought it was time to upgrade my drift boat and decided to go with a Willie 17x60. The price was right (they have a package deal and they are offering 25% off accessories). So I paid the money and got the boat I wanted. It was sitting in my driveway for 2-3 weeks because I couldn't get any time off work. Well I finally got that time and Floated Sportsman's to Jim's last Saturday and Sunday. Fishing was decent but the boat exceeded my expectations. I have attached a picture of a real nice 17-18" Bow my friend caught dead drifting a steak and eggs pattern. It's not the longest fish but it is tall for it's size and was a great fighter.
