95 Alumacraft competitor 170 s/c

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I recently bought the above mentioned boat with a 1998 Tracker by Merc, 115 hp. Anyone have a similar set-up, any pro's or con's, or other experiences? Prior to purchasing the engine checked out well. I hope it floats!!

I have a 93 170SC Competitor with a 60 hp motor. I love the boat, but I would really like to upgrade the motor. 60hp is fine for most of the fishing I do, but it would be nice to move a little quicker from spot to spot. I did a few modifications, I added on two platforms to the transom of the boat for casting. I really like the set up of the boat. Livewell, Baitwell, built in tacklebox, dry storeage, battery storage, and a nice size compartment for a softsided cooler. I just wish it had a better rod compartment. 3 rods max.

      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.
