    saw this pic in an old Whopper Stopper Bait co. catalog and it brought back memories of fishing out of boats like this...
    prior to the 70's,most people didn't own a bass boat....they carried their motor and paddle in trunk of their car (nobody except farmers drove pick up trucks) and rented a boat at the marina on the lake...like the boat in the picture,these boats were small and didn't have much freeboard.....you had to be very careful because they were easy to swamp or tip over and few people carried life jackets.....
