With a new one, you pay much-much more up front… if you finance it, then that just makes matters worse. And you have less money to go fishing.
With a used one, you pay a lot less money up front… if you don’t have to finance it, that just makes things better… And you have a lot more money to go fishing…
The sparklies are to catch boat owners, not fish – the same with fishing gear….
I spent a few years as a professional fisherman – nothing I owned was sparkly unless it was wet (generally me). If sparkly catches fish I guess we professionals didn’t notice.
Shiny lures are effective, as in polished chrome, but so is a piece of white plastic. Colour is funny with fish, why a fish strikes at a banana yellow lure today, but only a fluro pink one tomorrow I cannot tell – neither colour is remotely like the natural prey most of the time.
Making a boat pretty makes no difference to the fish, but if it makes the owner of the boat feel good then why not?
