    13 years of Tin Boat fun

    I have been a member here for 13 years Not as active anymore just due to less fishing mostly I am now living in NE Pa. Cooler weather but more smallmouth in lakes. Longer drive to the salt which sucks. Cheap land here so a plus Lots of changes for me and for Tin Boats still a great site...
