My maiden voyage in my Outback strated out slow but finished well. I left my battery for my FF at home. Called my wonderful wife and she brought it to me. I was crappie fishing in Beaver Lake Arkansas. I finished with a dozen crappie in my live well. I've been fishing in a Wilderness Ride 135 and it has a lot more room than the Outback, but by the end of the day I had found a spot for everything I need. I understand better things I had read on this forum about the steering. It's going to take a little getting used to but I think it's going to be a keeper.

p.s. the crappie were delicious

Good to see you have christened your Outback with a good haul of fish.

Yea I've got to start work on a custom rack to load and haul the outback. Also have to finish customizing the yak. I'm not satisfied with the fishfinder. I'll probably upgrade to a color finder. They are easier to see in sunllight. I also have to install an anchor trolley. Very inportant for the way I fish. Also some good trolling rod holders for striper fishing.

If you can catch fish on your maiden voyage then that sounds like a huge success to me ! Congrats!
