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

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.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
