https://www.facebook.com/Bonners-Fish-O ... ervice-205…/ Bonner's Fish On Guide Service doin' it again on a small river with a full boat of ‪#‎steelhead‬ limits! ‪#Bonner‬ and these 3 happy ‪#fisherman‬ were fishing out of a 17' ‪Alaskan‬ ‪‎XL‬ with a 6'4" bottom and a 98 1/2" beam which makes the visually small 17' platform massive in performance! Side drifting, pulling bait divers and just plain tracking out of a smaller ‪sled‬, not to mention hauling a ton of weight and the handling of a jet tunnel! Thanks for the photo Bonner boy, you da man!

Duvall Fire & Rescue Boat (20’ Super Sport Drifter Inboard model) just came in for some LED lighting & GPS sonar upgrades. These upgrades are necessary to navigate flood waters and rivers in the Snoqualmie Valley and locate folks that might be in danger. We are proud of the emergency agencies that risk their own lives to keep us safe. Thank you, we appreciate you guys!

Stephen just picked up his new “‪#‎Suzuki‬ powered” 17’ Open model ‪#‎Alaskan‬ with a bunch of fishy options to help him get a leg up on the springer competition out there. It was a pleasure to build and we’re glad to get it done before springer fever starts buddy!

Here is a cool video shot for Nicholas Dean Lodge (http://nicholasdean.com/) out of Northern BC a few years ago with guide DustinKovacvich, fish gal April Vokey- FlyGal Ventures (http://www.flygal.ca/) and friends. They were navigating the hallowed ‪#‎BC‬ steelhead waters with one of our shallow running ‪#‎jet‬ ‪#‎boats‬! Check out the ‪#‎dry‬ ‪#‎fly‬ takes from these willing ‪#‎Canadian‬ ‪#‎steelhead‬. This is truly a sight to see!

It’s getting to be about that time of year again. The Cowlitz River produced these fine steelhead limits for Aaron Jordan of Get the Net Guide Service and his customers last March! Check out their website here… http://getthenetguideservice.com/ .

Aaron operates out of a Wooldridge 20’ Alaskan XL tiller model powered by a 200HO Evinrude Etec

Matt Watson just got his brand new 17’ Alaskan XL the other day and is already doing damage to the hatchery steelhead population on the Cowlitz River. Here is an email he just sent us…

"Hey Danny thought you'd appreciate this pic. The Cowlitz is picking up. We picked up a fourth but it was a Nate. Only fished for a few hours this afternoon. This was my son Connors (next to me) first Steelhead, hooked and landed all by himself! You should have seen him with that thing came tail walking out of the water! Priceless!!!!"

Here at Wooldridge boats we believe in community outreach. Friday we had a group of Mechanic students of Wahkiakum High School of Cathlamet, Washington (a town located along the Columbia River) stop by and tour our factory and had lunch with them after. These kids are planning to build their own boat! We hope we inspired these group of kids to one day become welders and fabricators, maybe even one day come work for us!

Here is a 20' Alaskan XL Inboard Sport Jet headed up to be a stock boat at Burkeshore Marina in Big Lake Alaska. This boat is equipped with diamond plate bow storage, LED headlights, washdown pump, suspension seats, stomp grate and many more features and options. Of Course, it shifts with the Flow-Tec Shifter and linkage. This shifter is machined out of high quality aluminum and stainless and makes shifting the bucket a breeze. It is the nicest shifter available!

Go take it for a test drive!

On an adventure of a lifetime right now with my cousin Jared and grandfather Bob Wooldridge. We are in Grants Pass Oregon picking up an old original wood boat built by his father my great grandpa Glen Wooldridge Sr given to us by Kit and Ron. Kits father Lyle Woodcock was the original owner of this boat and had had it for over 50 years. Lyle and my great grandpa spent time together in this boat on the ‪#‎Rogueriver‬. We are off to see more history around town. More to come on the boat and our trip.

Rick had us build him a 20’ ‪#‎Sport‬ ‪#‎Offshore‬ model for his fresh and saltwater excursions. Looks like a pretty successful trip with some tasty deep water groceries bagged! Thanks for the pics Rick and we’re glad you’re putting your ‪#‎Wooldridge‬ to good use!
