$1500 sounder on a $600 Yak?

Postby Snow » Sat Aug 05, 2017 3:35 pm

Hi All. Yep I know I said I was logging off KFDU but something happened yesterday and I had a sudden rush of blood to the head :lol: .
So yesterday I sold this

Whole lot just pops off for transportation and for when I am chasing bass in the shallows

Welcome back Snow. The problem with a sounder that size is that the fish look bigger on the screen than they are in real life :grin:
