This is for a slightly used River Ridge custom canoe. Sportsmans model. 12' 9 long, appx 84lbs. Used only a few times last summer. New in 2008. Comes with seats, rod holders, mounted cup holders, mounted tackle boxes, battery box(fully wired for your trolling motor), paddles, never used soft sided cooler, mahogany food tray, removable cypress floor boards to keep feet and gear dry.Also, two extras-never used solar battery charger that mounts on canoe and a hoist pulley system for hanging in your garage. $1700. I have more pictures if interested. Thanks.

Thought a jet ski trailer might work but truck topping it worked well for my set up.

I'll respond just because I'm not sure if he was asking me or you about the transportation. I brought mine home on top of my wife's van.

Now someone buy Musky's Canoe.

Thanks Bartman...didn't think it'd be this tough to sell...my wife and I are selling it b/c lack of storage area and the fact that my young setter insists on going out with us everytime...enough room in the canoe for two fisherman but two fisherman and a dog is pushing it!

hey musk. I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions on how your canoe is setup? I have a 12ft ft9 cranberry creek canoe that looks exactly the same as yours. and would like to do the food tray/rod holder and was wondering if I could get some better pics of that from you? If you would like to contact me by email you can do so at [email protected], or if you leave me your email adress i could contact you instead.

thanks

Have you sold the canoe yet? If not what part of Minnesota are you in. I live near East Troy, WI. but will be in the Montello area this Mon, Tue, and Wed. Perhaps we could work something out if you are available to travel also on one of those days.

Aprreciate any response.

I agree.

I've had mine since 2000 and just love the thing! I use it on small rivers, lakes & ponds in the metro that have no other access besides carry-in. Better stability than any other canoe I've been in.

I've had 3 of them and agree. The seats actually help with stability because they keep the occupants centered rather than sliding from side to side. Plus they are comfy and the umbrellas are equally effective whether it's raining or sunny and hot. Now we've covered the seats. How about the floor racks to keep your feet and gear out of the water? And the manueverability. The features in this canoe are a result of the owner of the company keeping a journal of each trip for many years and noting what he'd add to make it more user and fishing friendly. By they way I have no stock in or connection with River Ridge - just believe in the product.

If anyone else is interested in a River Ridge canoe, I'm contemplating selling mine in favor of a bigger boat for lake at the cabin. Parents got the cabin a few months after I got the canoe, and I realized after one year that I fish at the lake way more than the small ponds and rivers locally, so I'd like something more set-up for the lake. Mine is camo, and a 2010 model with LED lights. Otherwise it is basically the same as Musky's. Shoot me a PM or email me at RKries22 @ gmail if you're interested.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
