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

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.

      I have good Jeremy how have you been doing. I need to get out fishing with you soon.
    • Walleye #1
      Stick in the Mud   I do think sometimes that those fish see so many jigs and shiners that something such as a crawler or leech is a great change up and will get bites.  Also with the bug hatches that are happening, those are two great baits.       Leech Lake   Leech Lake Walleyes once again found themselves spread out and in different areas and related to different pieces of Leech Lake structure.  Shiners and Leeches seemed to be the bait of choice for those Leech Lake Walleyes, but plastics are still catching some fish.  Be sure to stop in at Full Stringer Bait and Tackle, Swansons Bait and Tackle, Tutts Bait and Tackle, or Sportland Bait and Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs.     West End The LOA Fishing Guides found much of their success on the West End of Leech Lake.  Focusing in on the flats around West Goose in depths of 7-10ft of water, as well as the wind blown points such as Duck, Big Hardwoods, Ottertail, Pine, and Bowmans.  Sucker Bay also proved to have a good wind driven bite throughout the weekend.   A Jig and Minnow was the best presentation by far, but in most instances instead of jigging it, dragging or swimming it along the bottom seemed to work best, but when the front came in on Sunday the Leech Lake Walleyes were snapping and aggressively jigging was provoking the bite.  When things slowed down, slowing down with a lindy rig and leech put fish in the boat as well.  Green cabbage once again was a key to finding active walleyes and jumbo perch in 5-8ft of water.  Pitching an 1/8th oz KenKatch jig with a shiner caught Leech Lake Jumbos, Walleyes, and pike.  Slip bobbers and leeches/shiners also have put fish in the boat being either fished in the weeds or windblown points.   East End/Main Lake On the Main Lake, the rocks still were producing a great bite as well as some of the East End points such as Battle, Sugar, and Five Mile when the strong Westerly winds were blowing.  Annex, Submarine, Pelican, and North Bar were all producing fish in 10-14ft of water. Lindy Rigs with leeches or shiners seemed to work best, but the biggest fish still seem to want a 1/8th or 1/4oz jig and shiner.  
      Leech Lake Crappie and Bluegill fishing still remains strong.  When the weather warms up for a couple days both species are moving onto their beds and are actively feeding.  Looking to Boy Bay, Millers Bay, Shingobee, and Steamboat for the best action in 3-6 feet of water.  Just remember to use selective harvest as these fish are more vulnerable.

      Memorial Weekend,      Hit Waconia Saturday morning for bass. Caught about 40 largemouth--most from 14 to 17 inches, with a few 17 and 18 inchers--and several nice pike. Fish were in cabbage out from bedding areas, in about 6 to 9 feet of water. Fish were scattered, lying in the weeds looking up for sunfish that are staging in these areas preparing to move in and bed. With this situation, we buzzed spinnerbaits and weedless spoons over and through the tops of the weeds, and the bass aggressively came up on them, as well as some pike. Had one lazy muskie follow as well. Got good footage for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Added footage of a couple smallies from out in the Hutch area Saturday evening. The bass fishing will continue to get better as the water warms, with more big ones, and the sunfish bedding bite is probably only a week or less away. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Memorial Weekend,      Out on Washington Saturday afternoon and evening after hitting Waconia for bass Saturday morning. Caught largemouth, smallmouth, and pike. Added footage of a couple smallies to the largemouth and pike footage from Waconia for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Caught the bass and pike on Washington in four to seven feet of water, out from bedding areas, on spinnerbaits, Rippin' Raps, and Shadow Raps. Up on Mille Lacs this coming weekend for a walleye tournament, then will be back out in the Hutch area the next weekend guiding. We were targeting bass this weekend, but got a tip that walleyes are biting on a couple Hutch area lakes on live bait. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Geez Terry! Now you will be telling me that walleyes are only good muskie bait! Cliff
    • JeremyCampbell
      Nice report Cret Musta been a thrill getting that 9.75 Gill.  
    • JeremyCampbell
      Wow dude lol Sup Moose how you been?
    • guideman
      Vermilion has excellent fishing for both bass species   The east end has the best Smallmouth action and the west end has the best Largemouth action, however you can catch either on both sides of the lake.  For Smallmouth, rocks, docks, points, saddles, reeds, wood and the shoreline rubble are all very productive. Most of the green bass are found in or near the slop and the west end has the best of what they like the most. Spinnerbaits, any color as long as it's white, stick baits, cranks, topwaters, jigs, swim baits and soft plastics all work for Smallies. Jigs, topwaters(Frogs) plastics and a host of other stuff will catch the green bass. Have a great time, the midweek traffic is very minimal.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
