You guys have a great message board, I currently live in Virginia and became interested in Belly Boat fishing about five months ago. From the Research it is very popular sport on the West Coast and European countries.

Please tell me how this Club came to be and if anyone have the time please feel free to post a comment about Belly Boat Fishing on the

Roanoke Times blogs

The Wild Life

Outdoor sports editor Mark Taylor blogs about outdoor activities in the Roanoke Valley and beyond.

Any positive posting on this site will be greatly appreciated toward starting something fresh. My ultimate goal is to start a club and challenge you guys in your own back yard.

LOL Backlash

Thanks goes out to Mike A. for the positive encouragement in his emails.

Welcome and I'll try to post!

You can get the mesh bags at Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops or even make them yourself by getting a laundry bag and tie in those swimming pool fun noodles.

Do post any questions and we'll be happy to answer!

Todd

here are some pic's of my live well, if any questions fill free. the valve on the right fills and once it is full i close it and open the valve on the left, witch puts water threw the pipe in side and sprays out little hols drilled all along the bottom of it and then as it fills the cooler it drains out the back holes in each corner..all is ran off a 12V 500gpm submersible pump. found in all the top PRO BASS, Cable's magazine and of course Wal-Mart.

This a post that should be appearing on the Roanoke times blog... 3/3/08

That is one heck of a Steelhead!! Catching it in on a pontoon boat must have felt like catching Jaws, "we need a bigger boat".

That was also a great video submitted by Mike Ayers of the Sonoma Belly Boat Club under the photo for John Crews delivers photo.

Okay are you guys pumped yet,.... This is how we will start Hopefully many more to come The First New River Belly Boat Tournament is in the works after I check the legality of such we must first have a Champion.

The rules will be simple, the heaviest 1 to 5 fish total will win a Trophy commemorating his or her achievement. Now you guys didn't actually think this would be limited to the "fellas only".

The place for the tournament will either be Gatewood Reservoir or Pandapas Pond for obvious reasons no wakes from motorized boats. And more information about the different aspects of the belly boats.

Lastly each belly boat must have a live well. The SCBBC have a excellent design for a live well on their web site if you visit it let them know what you think they will respond in kind. One design for a irrigated live well can even be incorporated from the Pontoon too John Boat for less than $60.00 how cool is that.

I will be posting again very soon and I will try to have where some deals can be had, oh by the way you can use a fish finder on your float tube. "What"! you didn't know that item was available for a float tube come on give me a break! Yet if you think it's not sporting enough then lets test your fishing knowledge and your skills.

It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming. ~ John Steinbeck:
