Would like an opinion about my boat!

Recommended Posts

goodhookin

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'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
