Rope-A-Boat

I saw this on here a while ago, but can't find the post. Does anyone have this system. It's looks pretty awesome and I have the OK from the wife to get it. Would like to hear if anyone has used it though.

I know Dietz has seen it in action he seemed impressed.

The ropeaboat website has a video I believe!

Yep, I've watched the video and it looks pretty cool. Since I take kids and older people or by myself at times I was thinking it would save me a lot of headaches. Just wanted some input if someone has used it. I do remember Deitz saying he saw it in action and liking it.

I seen it in action at Sportsman Show. It seemed to good to be true. I figure it would wear out in a short period of time. Or it would get tangled up in future.

I posted in your post in the open water forum as I saw it first... The guy that owns the company lives here in the Chisago Lakes area. And I have seen him load his boat a few times. He let me at it a couple of times and it was pretty slick. If I had a roller trialer, I am pretty sure I would have the system on my trailer.

It works on a pully system, and I dont see how it would wear out? You may have to replace the ropes every couple of years maybe?... but even then I doubt it?

Well Wade, you set the hook like a girl so maybe you fall into the kids. But then you did try to net a lawn chair so maybe that falls in the old folks. Not sure yet. cool.gif

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
