Hello everyone! I have been browsing this forum for the past week and just decided to create an account. I have recently started back fishing after a 4 year break while I was in college, and I just purchased a boat last Saturday. It is a 97 Astro 172 fish. I see some members fish Belew Lake, well I purchased the boat from Belew Wake Marine. I should be taken her out on her maiden voyage next week. I look forward to chatting with everyone!
A young (or old) college grad can do a lot worse with his time and money than a bass boat. I know I did... It took me another 10 yrs to fulfill the dream of boat ownership after chasing cars, TVs, houses, golf and other fish-less pursuits when I got out of college.
Welcome aboard and congrats on the new boat. I hope she treats you well!
