I have come to love the smallmouth fishing we have available to us in this state. I have also noticed a large percentage of tournament bass fishing revolves around the smallmouth of St. Clair and Erie. One thing that has suprised me, is the number of people still fishing in bass boats. After being pounded for the hour drive up from the mile roads, around metro point to harley ensign, I swear my next boat is going to be a ranger 620 or Triton 205. After I stretch the knots out of my back at the launch, I wonder "why does everyone else still drive bass boats? These guys fish this lake more than I do!" It makes me wonder if there are major downfalls to the deeper multispecies boats? Two that come to mind are 1- shallow water use on inland lakes(bucketmouth fishing). 2- Higher profile = faster drifts in wind, less control. Any opinions either way? Thanks!
