Hello All, I'm Keith, love to fish, and glad to be a member of the group! Ready to learn from you all about the local Striper/hybrid fishing!

Retired Air Force, now working at Lockheed, live in Kennesaw, and attend church at Three Taverns Church in Acworth.
Wife and I are waiting to pick up our new boat later this month. Then it's FISH ON!

Heck yeah man! If you really want to get in depth knowledge about these fish, this is the place to be. We'll see you on the lake!

Been awhile since I've been on the site... Just adding a couple pics to my intro....

Our new boat, 2017 Silver Wave Center Console pontoon, did arrive and she's docked at the Navy Rec Site. Trying to get out on the lake at least one day/evening a week. Added the T-Top and Capt's seats up front! Still learning the HB Helix system. A compromise with the Mrs, since she wanted a toon, and I wanted a fisher.
We may have to name her the "1 Fish Wonder"! So far, when we have caught fish, we've only caught 1, each time! As luck would have it, my wife caught the 1st fish on the boat on our first trip out!

That's pretty cool man, never seen a pontoon rigged that way. See you around the pond!

Thats nice. I've been thinking about some sort of top on my boat. I used to couldn't have them because we couldn't squeeze in under the trees, but that is seldom a problem any more.

Been fishing about 4 months now with the boat, and the configuration has worked out well. T-top has kept the sun off me, and I've only had the bimini up twice when the sun was beating down on my guests.

I like it for sure.

I've been fishing out of 16' toon for the last year and love it. Glad to have you on the forum.

Go ARMY!
