A Late Start To the Pontoon Boating Season

Here we are, we’ve reached mid-September and I have finally had time to get our pontoon boat on the water.

Boating via a pontoon boat is great fun. You can walk around and have much flexibility. But, trailering, putting the boat on the water, and then pulling a pontoon back out are much more challenging than with smaller fishing boats.

Today the effort of a pontoon boat was worth it as I was able to photograph at close range a double-crested cormorant, a green heron (that was hard to see), and a great blue heron. I also recorded an image of anglers with a backdrop of the rising sun. For those wondering, I was on Frog Hollow Lake (aka Volga Lake).
