What brand, color boat & motor do you have?

20 posts in this topic

Who knows...maybe we see each other all the time on the lakes and don't know it.

What brand, color boat & motor do you have so we know who you are?

Mine is a white 1990 17' YarCraft with a 80 HP 4 stroke Yamaha & (2) Minnkotas. Tow it with a blue '02 Ram 2500 diesel shortbox. I may also use a stealth 1200 duck boat or red two-up kayak.

Come ice, a yellow Bombardier Outlander or a maroon Suzuki Vitara SUV.

My home lake is Big C. (unless it doesn't start acting better) grin.gif

I drive a maroon 04 ford with a TC and vikings sticker in the window. I have a tan Alunacraft with a 60 hp blue evenrude. You can spot me -- I am the guy with the 10" eyes. wink.gif

if you see a sweet 19' Triton walleye edition with a 115 tiller and two 80ft-lb trolling motors being towed by a maroon GMC pickup with a topper, look in the passenger seat, it might be me tongue.gif

that's Fisherdog's boat.

The only boat I have is a 12 foot Starcraft that I use for duck hunting...

Hiya -

I run an tan-ish 18' Tracker Tundra with a full windshield and a 135 OptiMax. Not too many of them around so I kind of stick out. Pull it with a very dusty black Tahoe...

Mark - man, a '55 Seahorse... I'm jealous as hell. Just readin that brought back memories. I grew up driving around Crystal with a '55 5.5 hp Seahorse. Loved that thing. Then we got a 15 horse Evinrude, and man oh man did I think I was hot stuff then smile.gif If you EVER decide to sell that motor, please let me know. Seriously... I'd love to have one again, just to have it.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

As of a few weeks ago, a 18' foot red and black Skeeter with a full windshield. 150 Vmax and a 9.9 4 stroke kicker on the back.

Swing by and say hi anytime! Always good to visit with fellow FMers on the water.

New boat eh Scooter, how's it going, haven't spoken with you for a while. We should get together.

My new/used ride: 19' Dark Blue with Maroon accent Triton Walleye Edition with a 115 yami 4 stroke tiller. I've never even seen a Triton around here, let alone a tiller, so if you see one, it's me. I must add that I love it. 25mph winds, and I can backtroll while staying right on top of fish. The wind just can't blow it around laugh.gif.

Fisherdog,

Congrats on the new rig yourself. You been able to dunk it in the water much? Despite the new rig, I haven't been able to get out much. My current life situation (job, wife, kid, house, etc.) has me fishing on the Red and on a few bigger trips each year- that's about it. I try sneak out occasionally, but it doesn't come together for me very often right now.

We have a Crestliner with the Green interior and wish we didn't have the carpet because sand sticks out bad in it.

Dad, my brother and I bought a 15' Lund Mr. Pike in 1979. I've taken out the steering console and changed the floor two times. Newer 25hp Johnson with a bow mounted transom trolling motor that's being held together with electrical tape. Pulled by a Green Ford Ranger extended cab. I'm a really big guy so it probably looks like the boat is going up hill all the time.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
