Wow. This looks like a perfect set up for someone looking to get a rig for a reasonable price point. I don't think this will last long.

Here’s some pictures of Chad’s boat. Note that the trolling motor pictured is what was on the boat last season and not the upgraded one that will be included. You’ll get both if you’re the lucky buyer.

And the motor…..

With the upgrades that Chad had done on this boat…Eagle electronics, new trolling motor, completely rewired boat…he’s underselling it at $1700. That’s over $500 in basically brand new equipment in the electronics and the trolling motor. Plus a completely rewired boat and a motor that’s in great shape. I was in the boat last summer and the motor ran flawlessly. Also, this boat has interior lighting that I was very impressed with. I wish I had these lights in my own boat! If you’re out after dark or in low light conditions, these interior lights are great. They don’t look like much. But when you turn them on you will be very impressed by how much light they give off. And it’s in the interior of the boat only. It’s not going to spook fish by light out on to the water. So if you’re interested, I’d jump on this while it’s still for sale. Anyone looking for a good starter boat, you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Hey Aaron,

Thanks for posting the pics of Chad's boat. I just want to point out to everyone that these are pictures of the boat right after he bought it, since then the boat has been cleaned up, re-wired, and I forgot the trailer had new bearings and seals last spring also.

You and I are going to have to talk to Chad about a fee for selling this rig for him. Maybe a day of musky fishing on him for you and I. You are right someone is going to get a good deal on this rig.

Thanks again.

If I had a place to put it I would take it right now! That is what I have been looking for to upgrade my duck boat. Man I wish I had the room.

LovinLifeGuy,

I bet I could get Chad to throw in a tarp for you. This would make a good duck boat upgrade.

Wow, sounds like Chad really wants to get this one off his hands so he can get that new boat in the garage! He's asking LESS than he paid for the boat a year ago and the boat is definitely worth more than it was when he got it. Completely rewired, new electronics, new trolling motor. You're getting a very good value on this one. Make sure to get in touch with Chad for more info!

Is this boat still available? If so, should the info. at the beginning of this thread be used to get a hold of the seller? Thanks.

Give Chad a call or shoot him an email. It's still available and all of his contact information is in the first post. I'm really surprised it's still available. For a starter boat with a 40 HP motor in very good condition, a price like this won't come around very often.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
    • ozzie
      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
