Chunkytrout's new boat (pics included)

19 posts in this topic

Well, we've all waited a long time to see pics of Chunky's new laker taker, so here she is. I shot these off the Van Vac dock Sunday as Mr. Trout pirhouetted and spun the queen around like a dancer. Well, OK, a really big, heavy dancer. grin.gif

I'll let him fill you all in on the specifics of said boat. grin.gif

Healed over is right. In 1956 deep V hull wasn't part of our vocabulary. She spent her first 20 years on La Croix as a freighter. Mostly hauling propane and ice. There's a guy in Ely who actually worked out of her up there when he was "much younger". He said she had a Merc the size of a Maytag on the back of her way back then. From there it's a mystery where she's been. I've had people tell Vermilion and other people tell me Basswood.

Well she'll has some more stories to tell when you get done with her. I'm sure she'll still be freighting ice and plenty of methane gas too.

Thanks man. It's a 56 Alumacraft Queen Merrie. Pride of the fleet when it was built. That lake is Burntside.

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
