8 posts in this topic

If someone was looking to offer boats and motors in your area which brands would you prefer and which brands have caused you headaches? Or which do you have and what you like about your boat or motor?

I think where your post going did not follow forum rules. It would have started blasting people for the type of equipment they have.

I have a 680t Ranger w/60 Suzuki, The boat & motor has held up to the way I run equipment. HARD!!! Boat works good for muskie fishing, if only could duck hunt from it stable as a rock. Zuki's easy on gas and has held up running at, will, tached out.

I would have to say I'd like to see a Ranger dealer in this area. And U cant go wrong with either a Merc or Evinrude.

how do we define area 10, 20, 30 miles from Willmar, Spicer, or Paynesvilles? How far would a person be willing for a boat/motor? When I got my motor, I drove 60 miles for a dealer, Frankies marine. They only deal with fishing boat, no personal water craft, or ski boats. The suzuki dealer close to my home would only sell boat packages, not motors allow.

Jiggin and others I posted this on several sites asking for Boat,Motor and accesory information for Fishing Minnesota People.I also asked that we keep DEALER Loyalties or complaints out of it.I think that if a person wants to advertise for their dealer they can do that every time they take the boat out by displaying that buisneses good traits in that space.What I am asking is simply what BRANDS of boats motors trailers etc.have you had problems with ,and which BRANDS would you like to see in this area.That means if you live here and travel severalother areas to fish besides here,or if you come here to your cabin from somewhere else,or just visit here to fish or camp etc. which would be your preference???? Not looking for dealer loyalty or bashing .OOOOPPPSSSJiggin please dont Narrate my posts into your words anymore as I would rather have them deleted and start over than be censored.

prime, just didn't what you poll to become a bashing of people. No matter who are maybe. Poll is a good idea as to what guys like and enjoy about the boats and motors they or their friends use.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
