Nope. Not to me. My 22ft boat has never felt too big. I just need a 500R.  8)

I like fast boats and fishing.. I can do both the same day.

That is true.   I am buying a Wake Surf Boat and going out on the weekends and circle bass boats.   Fished White Saturday.  Great until 10 then it was time.   4 Wake Surf boats in the exact area I fish.   Guess they stay out in the middle so they are not bothering the shore people.   Boat is still wet today.  Bilge pump ran probably 10 times that I saw.   Poor little boat does not have a chance in them big waves.   Going to get me them Boom Boom speakers to.  Only problem is they start at about 100k.

Depends on where you're fishing and how big the waves are...?? There were many times I wanted a cigar boat with a bow mount trolling motor - extra long shaft... ;D Glad I can look at the waves sometimes now and think, we need a smaller lake (instead of a bigger boat).

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.
