I have an acoustic that was purchased 10 years ago. I always picked it up for a week and "played" but never followed through. I'd finally like to give it a real shot and try to learn.
I'm not looking to be a frontman for a band or anything, I'd like to learn enough to play some "campfire" type ...

I know you want to troll at a speed between 1.3-2.3 mph, but do most guys use their trolling motor or just bump their motor in gear? I would imagine your trolling motor would get run down pretty quickly.
I was going to go today, but the reported 3-5' waves turned me off. I may go out tomorrow....
