Would like an opinion about my boat!

4 posts in this topic

I am new to this site. We moved down to Fl. 5 yr's ago from the Mound area.

Not what we had expected and we are moving back up mn. in the spring of 07. I have a

1996 boat. It is a 17'6" Aquasport 175 Osprey Classic C/C Loaded with all the great fishing pkg's. It's got a Johnson 88 special motor on it and I just love this boat it is a great fishing boat.

I was just wanting to get an idea and an opinion on how this boat would be for deep water lakes and shallow lakes. It only draws 10 inches w/motor up. Should I sell or by another up there. What would you do? Thanks. Good Hookin'

Depends on your main fishing interests........if you tend to or intend to fish Millie or other big waters for walleye....that can get pretty rough, I have run Skeeter bass Boats for twenty years, just sold my zx185 with a 175 intruder, next boat is going to be a deepV Skeeter.....alot more operator friendly when it get's nasty out there and a whole lot less punishing. Keep yours for a while, if it is not fitting the bill.............tradeit!...........LOBY smile.gif

I was in the Navy and stationed in Jax Fla. I had a 19' Cobia CC then with graph, gps, the works. I sold it thinking it woukld not be a good boat for up north. I now kick myself for selling it everytime I go out on a big lake (Especially Superior). I would love to have that boat back now. I'd say keep it. You can always buy a used small 12-14 footer for putting around the small lakes and streams.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
