Several weeks ago I posted a video showing a walkthrough of my SeaArk ProCat 240 Catfish Boat and some of the features of my 2016 SeaArk ProCat 240. I promised in that video to come back with a future video with more details and information on how I’ve rigged my catfish boat and electronics.
I’ve also had a TON of questions on my electronics setup, how I’ve rigged my catfish boat and why and also exactly why I’m using the different electronics.
In this weeks video I’ll walk you through the rigging of my 2016 SeaArk ProCat 240 showing all the details of my setup as well as some of the basics behind how I’m using each part of the technology (and why). In the process I’ll be covering tips on how to setup and rig your own catfish boat.
I know there’s more specific questions about the cable routing on the SeaArk ProCat so at some point I’ll cover that information as well for the SeaArk Owners. I’ll also be back with another video very soon covering the rest of the details on how I’ve rigged my catfish boat beyond the electronics.
This week I’ll be covering the items and products listed below. On each item I go through the basics of what they are, why I’ve chosen these products and some of the ways I use each one for locating and catching catfish as well as locating and catching shad.

Again, I walk through each of the different types of electronics on the boat, some basics on how I’ve rigged them, installation tips for the best performance, cable routing and power basics and some of my favorite features of each of the electronics and how I’m using them to locate and catch catfish.
This is a really long video because there’s a LOT of information covered and I had a list of all the questions I’ve been getting frequently so I took extra time to make sure I answered all your questions.
