Its official, my Jon boat a.k.a. Carp Killa is getting an overhaul. With a ton of help from my amigo Matt, there is a front casting deck, rod holders, and new flat floor being added to my skiff, followed by a bow mount trolling motor. The floor and deck are being constructed out of plywood, with a good coating of marine epoxy, followed by a topcoat of Rhino lining or marine paint depending on what is left of my budget after the necessities are added. Later, I plan to replace my homemade “Redneck” poling platform with something that doesn’t look like it came from Sanford and Sons junk yard. Oh and I am on the hunt for a Yeti cooler to mount in the middle, so the refreshments will stay extra cold.
For those interested in chasing Carp on the fly, I plan to acquire my OUPV Six Pack Capt’s License in the near future.
Stay tuned for more on the Carp Killa build.
