Dustin's Corner: New Boat for a New Season

Please welcome the Newest Addition to our Fishing Team.
, the yet unnamed Ranger Z521 paired with a 250 Yamaha SHO..and a Power Pole Blade

 As everyone knows, I had my boat aka "Big Sexy"(Z518 Ranger) for a couple of years (editors note: Dustin is the only one who called the boat 'Big Sexy").  This boat worked amazing for us, and we have had alot of fun in it, however due to getting busier in the fishing tournaments, and taking on bigger waters (not to mention carrying more tackle and gear on board) it was time to go on the hunt for a bigger boat.  

I wasn't going to veer away from Ranger or the new Yamaha SHO outboards, so that left my options limited to where I would be able to find one or a place that was wanting to make a deal.  Well it took some looking but I found a Z521 Ranger with a 250 Yamaha SHO at Bay-Marine located in Trenton.  So after talking with them at the Belleville Sportsman Show and throwing some numbers around, we came to a deal within 5 minutes (amazing).  

The sales team at Bay-Marine made it easy to work with them, and make me a great offer on my current boat (unlike some other dealers). 

So this past saturday we made the road trip down and dropped off "Big Sexy" and picked up to the new Girl ( and yes I shed a tear letting go of my first baby, however I was excited to adopt the new one).

It won't be to much longer now and the hard water will be off the lakes, and we can get this new beast wet...the only thing left to do is think of a new name (any suggestions!)  and get it decked out in the New Roads Fishing Logo's!

(This year will also be our first year sporting the Power Pole Blade)

Once again a big thanks to Bay-Marine, and if anyone is looking for a boat please go see them, as how they treated me was a awesome experience, friendly and made the deal happen!

See you on the water soon!
