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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
