Pontooning on a Lake
Enjoy Life From a Pontoon
There is something serene and quintessentially American about meandering the waters of a lake on a pontoon boat. Boats, designed for many reasons, serve different purposes. A pontoon boat was designed just for family fun.
Perfect for Fishing:
Though some boats might arguably be better suited for this endeavor, the boat’s ease and stability lend itself for long hours of quiet fishing. With room for ice chests, storage, and multiple fishing rods, several people can pile in for a fishing day. Your dog may enjoy some time of the boat as well - just keep him away from your catch! You don’t want to turn your back too long on Baxter. We learned this the hard way.
Water Skiing and Tubing:
We wondered if this boat would work well for this purpose; we were pleasantly surprised to find that this boat could viciously cut the water and make a considerable wake for jumps while on water skis or tubing. Though you may see your life flash before your eyes, tubing is sure to bring out belly crunching laughs for spectators and tubers. Hang on tight!
A Trip to Dinner:
Donning dinner attire, if you go slow, you will not likely get wet. Finding your favorite seafood restaurant or ice cream parlor makes for an ideal evening out. Why drive when you can access restaurants by parking in a free boat slip adjacent to your dining place? The experience of trolling to and from dinner makes for a special evening and time to digest your food before arriving home.
Evening Sunsets While On the Water:
The view of a setting sun sinking below the skyline on a lake is spectacular! Summer sunsets display deep crimson reds, oranges, and yellows blazing across the water’s surface and painting the clouds! Even the grumpiest passengers may be found awe-struck and taking out the camera for a quick attempt to capture the beauty spread out before them. The lake quiets in the late evening hours, and the waters settle to a glass. If you get a chance for a weekend getaway to stay at a lake in late summer, be sure to rent a boat to enhance the enjoyment of your experience. Enjoy your vantage point from the side of a pontoon boat with family and friends! Get a pontoon boat and get into the fun!
