Boat Cover Question

7 posts in this topic

I have a 1988 Smoker Craft Pro Mag with a bow trolling botor and a 35 merc on the back that I keep at the in-laws cabin in Grand Rapids on a lift w/out a canopy. I rarely trailer the boat to the Twin Cities during the summer, if at all. I'm having a hard time finding an inexpensive boat cover for it that covers the trolling motor. I'd like to find something that I can tie down to the lift and not have to worry about it during the week while we're not there. Any suggestions?

They made me a cover 11 years ago, and it still works great and in very good condition. Was $225.00 then.

Where are you located ? I have few left boat shipping covers, which are heavy lined plastic, and they wrap hull almost to bottom. I sell them at $ 50.00 but don't have many sizes left.

They are better than the cheap ones.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
