Has anyone heard of DuraJet

6 posts in this topic

I am just wondering if any one has heard of Dura Jet motors. I happend to come across them at "smalloutboards.com". They seem fairly inexpensive compared to the other options out there but I am just wondering if anyone has used one before I just go and buy one. Thanks.

It still puts your lower unit below the boat to take in water, might be good in a tunnel hull thats meant for normal outboards. I would look at outboard jets... its the same website as the name just take out the space and add a (Contact Us Please) com wink.gif If ya really want to run the river look up RiverPro jet boats, by far the best boats in the country for these rivers around here!

Yes a River Pro would be nice but I just can't fit that in the budget at this time. After a little more research I am not sure if the Durajet is what I am looking for either. But I thought they looked like something worth checking out. Notice my original post was in 2004.

I had a Mercury 20 jet (actually a 25, but they call it a 20 because of the loss of efficiency of the jet lower unit) that I really liked until the water got low and the grass got high! If you're going fast, it's ok but when you are slow trying to get thru low, rock-filled water it sucks up the grass and you stop. By the time you pull it off the current has you back to where you started and you go thru it again. Sold it to my brother-in-law who runs it in the Muskeegan River in Michigan and he loves it.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
