I have finally gotten my wife to come fishing with me. We started with fishing piers and she has done pretty well. She actually seems to be enjoying it and has been the one to suggest going a couple time. She is getting better at handling the rod and has been able to fight the fish all the way in now.
She seems to like the piers better than our boat. She can sit better on the piers. I think I may end up getting a smaller boat because she has so much trouble getting in and out of our 210. 20200224_165911.jpg 20200224_173719.jpg 20200322_180517.jpg 20200322_180524.jpg 20200403_135231.jpg

Awesome!
Smaller, less V (say 12 degrees of deadrise) with plenty of beam, will equal a more stable platform for you both to fish from. This and draw less water at the same time :D
