I had a thread in ducks geese and waterfowl about this project and I thought I would share the results here also.

I was hoping to help make the back float with that heavy motor on the back, but I have just been told by my old man that it will just help if I capsize the boat.

Thats too bad dude!

Looks like a ton of work. It came out nice though.

Any plans to remove them now?

Now if you would have built that same pod out the back of the boat and filled it with foam it would help with the floating. Kinda like the Beavertail pods. Helps a ton.

nope not gonna move em out just yet might not be a bad idea to have the extra floatation in the boat with that 185 pound motor sitting on the back never know I might have jinxed myself and now I'm going over boards yikes

just went to the beavertail HSOforum and I know why I tried this first. I knew the pods were expensive but my god $350 I did not even pay that much for the boat thier going on. I have had the longtail on thier for one year and it floats pretty good. If I conjer up an idea on how to make my own I will put some on her but as for right now I will have to deal with what I have

Well I have seen people do the pods them selves. Most just get a box welded up with flanges on the end and rivit it or bolt it to the boat and fill it with foam.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
