It also has gator rope locks in the back corners and front for anchors and drift bags. Boat is in good shape, motor runs great.

2005 River Pro Jet boat, 175 hp inboard jet, fishing

Vehicle Description

HIGH PERFORMANCE JET BOAT FOR SERIOUS RIVER FISHERMEN

2005 River Pro Jet boat with a 175 Merc. Sport jet V6 oil injected. This boat is made of alumimun throughout. Hull is 3/16 thick and double hulled down the center. 17.6 long but mesures 19 feet from tip to end of rear deck. Shorlander trailer rated for 3,000 pounds. Bunk trailer. This boat was used for two summers. Works great and runs great. This boat can run through only inches of water. This is a Team River Pro guide boat. I use it for catfishing on many rivers near here. The only down side of owning a boat like this is stopping to get gas, Every one will want to talk to you about your boat. Add extra travel time to allow for bragging up your boat.

Hours on the motor is a very common question, and very hard to give an answer to. Catfishing is most of the time anchored fishing. Motor time is just drive time to and from. All I can tell you for sure is the motor runs great, works great and needs nothing but water to run in. The boat is in great shape and works awesome in rivers and smaller lakes. I had no troubel takeing this boat to large water such as Lake of the Woods. It is a flat bottom jet and it will be a much rougher ride on rough water. Easy clean up and maintenance, no winterizing needed, pull it out of the water fog it and park it.

As for delivery, if your serious about a river fishing boat and want to be riding in the best out there, contact me and we can see about delivery or meeting half way depending on your location or buyer pick up. I highly recomend that I demo the boat for the buyer due to the unique handling and performance of the boat.

I am a Pro-Staff with River Pro and I assure you these boats are top of the line and you will have a hard time finding a used River Pro boat out there. Most people keep them and run them until they wear them out, which is a very long time. This boat has a 9 degree hull and can manover just like a jetski, fishing, skiing, tubeing, and just playing are many of the uses for such a boat.

That’s RiverPro®. Built tough, these all-welded, all-aluminum fishing machines offer the ultimate in shallow water, Mercury® Jet Drive performance. There's only one reason they build RiverPro aluminum jet boats. To get you to the fish, wherever they go on the river. Shallow rocks. Skinny inlets. Stump-infested backwaters. There's no place they can hide. Check out our line of tough aluminum jet boats and see why serious river rats from North to South are buzzing about RiverPro. Want to know the secret behind RiverPro’s incredible strength and performance? Its called PST™ - Pre-Stress Technology™ and it’s what every RiverPro jet boat goes through before it ever hits the water. CAD designed and plasma-cut by computer, each hull component is subjected to a rigorous pre-stressing process before welding. The aluminum is precision-curved, stretched and pulled, resulting in up to 30% lighter weight, while maintaining superior strength and rigidity. While some aluminum boats rely on “foam sandwich” construction to support the hull, RiverPro’s pre-stressed, all-welded hulls deliver far better performance and durability as one integral unit. Stable. Solid. Hard-bellied, all-welded aluminum cat ‘n bass boats, powered by Mercury’s Sport Jet® drive that lets you fly over just inches of water.

Ok, I have to hop in on this one... This boat is nothing short of amazing! We went on a guided fishing trip with Whiskers, and after catching the fish all I wanted to do was ride around in the boat and cruise up and down the river!! We had a blast and this boat rocks! WOW I still can not believe how versatile this boat is. No need to worry about sunken logs, or an occasional shallow sandbar. If you have any doubt, have him take you for a ride! grin.gif

LOL, that pretty much sums it up.. Now you know why it is so hard to find a used one for sale. Every day goes by I start to second guess selling it.

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!
    • ANYFISH2
      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.
    • TNtoMN_HuntFish
      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.
