I got my MR14 in Nov 2011, but due to work travel and some other commitments I didn't get on the water until August 12. I am so hooked and I love this boat. I have tried to get out most weekends since. I switch between a local reservoir and the Chattahoochee River and have a great time on both. I will be trying the Flint River and some coastal fishing in Alabama next year. Below are a few pictures. Not great, I just use my phone, but pictures are what we really want, right? This is my first car topping. This car has no good place to tie down the bow and stern without crawling under the car so I have since added mesh anchor straps under the hood and trunk lid that can be pulled out when needed. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3790[/ATTACH] This launch is on a county water reservoir near my house. It's a little over 300 acres. What a pretty boat! [ATTACH=CONFIG]3791[/ATTACH] I went there fishing with minnows only about a foot deep looking for some bream or crappie and the dang bass kept interupting me. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3793[/ATTACH] This picture looks like deep water but I was actually up near the bank not anchored and it spun me around. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3792[/ATTACH] This is the boat ramp I use to get on the Chattahoochee river. I have had a lot of fun catching Shoal Bass on the river. Notice there are no other people or vehicles. I have been here on some Sundays and never seen another person. My picture limit is out on this post so I will create another one below with some river pictures. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3794[/ATTACH]

Getting out there part 2 Here are a few from the river. I have actually tied up to a tree in the middle of the river, fished a little, then leaned back and taken a nap for a while. That is how stable the Manta Ray is. Not a big fish, but it was my first on the river. Shoal Bass. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3795[/ATTACH] One of my rest stops. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3796[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]3797[/ATTACH] This one is a little bigger. Nice Shoalie. [ATTACH=CONFIG]3798[/ATTACH] Man I love being out there! [ATTACH=CONFIG]3799[/ATTACH]

Thanks for bringing back some good memories of my own on the Hooch when I lived in Atl. Floating a river is freedom and I'm glad to see you're enjoying it and your MR.
