go-devil boat

Anyone every seen/been in one of these? It looks like it would be great for small water. Plus it's aluminum so it should hold up long term. Debating on this and a carsten/otter.

PS check out the surface drive videos, that looks like fun.

Looks interesting, bet it would float if you spit on sidewalk and launched it smile.gif

We have two Carstens Puddlers, and love them to death. Also use some of the bigger Carstens at friends place. I really like the Puddlers for shallow water and hiding and ease of transport and dragging. All good choices, but I really love how the Puddlers are so small yet so stable and can hold a lot (250# guy, backpack, 30 weighted decoys) and still float in about an inch and half of water.

250# guy and ONLY 30 decoys? I need to use your scale (just kidding) and your brother must not have been with you that day if you used ONLY 30 decoys.

I am heading out west to do a little scouting and goose hunting today with a friend. I hope I find some ducks on one of the smaller ponds I am going to look at so that I do not need to get to Pelican at 2AM next Saturday just to get a parking spot. Time to get the boat hooked up to the truck.

That is with the Puddler - one - then add the other Puddler with another fat guy and 30 decoys and you got something wink.gif

Hey joker wink.gif, I am an honest 250-255, and that is the biggest I have been - but I do need to lose some... holy cow that is a lot. Erik got a fiesty little (relatively) 32" ski today... and he didn't let me fish walleye, that jerk.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
