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.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
