Skeeter East of Roseau

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the details of the Skeeter that's for sale on the main drag just East of Roseau? What year is it? What motor's on the back (I think it's a Honda)? How much are they asking for it? Etc.

Scoot, I stopped and checked out that boat. It's a 2002 Skeeter with a 2004 150HP Honda. There are mounts for a depth finder and a handheld gps, but they were not in the boat, so I don't know what brand etc. There are three seats, and everything looks in real nice shape. He's asking just shy of twenty or offer.

Cool- thanks for the info.

It's a 2002? That must mean it was an 1880? Did you happen to notice what the rod storage situation was?

Yes, its an 1880. From what I remember, and other Skeeters I've looked at, there is a rod locker under the front casting deck. Why don't you come up for the Get Together this weekend and check it out? Maybe you could even take it for a test drive.

The 1880 model was introduced in 2005.

I'd find Kim's # to find out what the boat is. wink.gifgrin.gif

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
