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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
