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

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
