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

ND --

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.

    • 750 this week only Im losing money on this but would rather have someone be able to use it than for it to just sit around. After this week I am going to winterize it and it will no longer be for sale.

    • How is she on the sit command?  That is the basis of everything.  She needs to learn to sit still and wait until the next command.  I don't even teach my dogs "stay" because it isn't necessary if they are solid on "sit".  Every dog has the ability to be steady, it is up to you to teach them.  A lab that isn't steady in the boat is not only annoying, it is potentially dangerous with loaded guns and the potential to capsize a boat in open water. 

      If she knows sit but just needs some reinforcement, it may just take a couple trips where you don't even bring the gun along and let others shoot while you handle the dog. 

      If she's real bad, I would recommend going back to the basics. It will be tougher with an older dog versus a puppy but is definitely worth it. Check out the retriever training DVDS by Bill Hillman. They are spendy but definitely worth it.

      Looking for advice on keeping the dog focused and quiet in the duck boat.  Was out today and we shot enough ducks to keep her busy, however my dog is such a hyper hypo that it's a  little annoying.  Either whining or jumping back and forth from the front and back of the boat.  Do I just need to establish the expectation and keep on her till she finally gets it or is this how some dogs are in the boat? This is her 4th year duck hunting and she has continued to improve each season.  Overall I am happy with her work, especially with the limited amount of hunting I do.  We were out today for 3 hours, shot 8 birds and she did great on the retrieving end and is pretty much focused on the skies, but if something is not constantly dropping from them I feel like I have a screaming baby on my hands.  It's not really that bad, just very annoying.   I would just like her to sit in her spot, stare at the skies and wait for my command.  Is this to much to ask?

      she's getting big

      She's up to 38 pounds at a few days short of 5 months and does not stop going 100 mph. She got exposed to a lot of feathers this weekend at duck camp. She retrieved dead ducks and geese in the yard after our hunts. The goose was a bit big so I chopped a wing off and worked with that after she picked it up and barely made it back a short distance to me.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, Northwest Angle 9/25/16

       

      Happy Fall!

       

      On the Minnesota side fishing has been great around Soldier’s and Mergan’s Point. Most points have been producing fish as well as bays due to shiners moving into the bays. Raps and spinners have been successful as well as 3/8 ounce jigs with the jig bite turning back on. Shiners, crawlers and fatheads have all been attracting the fish. The magic depth has been between 8 and 18 feet. The duck and goose opener has been successful with many resident birds still around we have not seen any signs of northern birds in the area. There have been many Woodducks and Mallards around.

       

      Over on the Ontario side the Walleye bite has been great and the Crappies are picking up. Anglers have been targeting fall spots and jigging in 18-28 feet of water. Emerald shiners are on the move to spawn so watch for them in channels and bays with creeks. The water temp is cooling down and is approximately at 62 degrees. Trolling for Muskies in 10-18 feet has also been good.

       

      The leaves are starting to change colors and there is definitely a chill in the air but, there is still plenty of time to get in on some wonderful fall fishing. The best part about fall fishing is some of the great wildlife you get to see out and about. Also, it is a good time to start thinking about your winter ice fishing trip, we would love to have you as our guest!

       

      Until next week, good luck fishing!

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.
