skeeter2050 vs Ranger 620

3 posts in this topic

Am looking at glass boats what is the opinion out there.I am sure the mille lacs people will have an opion. Or should I just stick with current boat 99 pro V? or is aluminium the way to go?

I have never fished out of the skeeter so I can not compare. The 620 was revamped in 05 I believe with the batteries tucked out of the way and tons of storage. I fish out of my friends 2000 620 quite a bit and it is an awesome boat. Room for 25-30 rods built in cooler and plenty of room to put all your gear away. quality is top notch all the way down to the trailer. With the new 620 just 4" shorter than the 621. Bass and walleye boats has an outboard shootout for the revamped 620 which should help make a motor choice. 4 to 5 footers are no problem for this boat. good luck

i have owned a 620 and now have a 2050 both are excellent boats the 2050 is a little deeper and sits higher in the water so when anchored you dont get the waves pouring over storage is close to the same with maybe a little more in the 2050 ranger maybe a little smoother in rough water but not by much and the skeeter wont spear waves had my ranger do that a couple of times. in all very close in all respects but will cost less to get into the skeeter. most of my fishing is on mille lacs so that is what i am comparing the two boats to hope this helps alos top on my ranger with 225 was 52 skeeter with 250 hits 57

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
