Hello! I am Bob (with one O) from Orlando, FL. I am a complete newbie to fishing/boating. My teenage son was the one who has been pond hoping and got me to throw a line in with him a few weeks ago. I am now hooked! He/I wants to start fishing small tournaments around central Fl. We do not have a boat and that's what I am requesting. What is a good solid make/model for beginners with a 10K budget that can grow with us? Not looking to take over the bass fishing scene, just looking to spend time with my boys and catch a few fish along the way.
Thank in advance and can't wait to learn a new hobby!
