Before you buy a bait boat read this


A hobby fisherman you can call me. I like go fishing with the kids, wer’e fortunate to have our own pond out back stocked with bluegills and bass and catfish. I came across the idea of trying one of those remote control boats to catch fish and was about to try to make my own out of an rc boat. It looks easy since all I want it to do is take my fishing line out from my pole and steer the boat to where the fish are. Well, needless to say I scrapped the idea and went on the hunt for a fishing remote boat. I told my son about it and he sure got a kick out of the idea of this unconventional way of fishing, I haven’t seen him that excited since he wanted the xbox, which if you know anyone that wants one I have one cheap, he used it only a couple of months! Wasn’t a minute after searching for it on the internet before I was overwhelmed with choices. Whoa, wait a minute, this new project is going to be a little more than I thought. I’ll tell you, these days kids are smarter than us, my 14 year old says look at this, it’s called a Radio Ranger RC Fishing Boat.
Given the choice, for a first timer these rc fishing boats are more practical than the more expensive bait boats.

We haven’t had this much fun in a long time together, it’s funny how simple things make people happy, like fishing. The thing that gets me is while hunting for our bait boat thing all I could find were what I would call overkill. Heck, I can buy 10 of these Radio Rangers for the price of one of those bait boats.

I like how my kid laughs when he uses the radio ranger to pull in the fish. He puts a cork on the line, and hook an the back of the boat, drives it out and waits for a fish to strike, then drives the fish in with the boat. He’s full of smiles, he caught a few catfish too! I like how I can attach the line from my fishing rod to the boat and drive it out a few hundred feet and release it, right on top of the fish.

So if you’re looking for a some real fun then check these out, I recommend them to anyone with or without kids for the ultimate fishing experience! Read More..
