2013 Ranger 1850
This is the cleanest 2013 multi sport fishing boat that you’ll find. Powered by a Yamaha 150 four stroke, this is a great performing boat. The interior, exterior, motor and trailer are in awesome condition. Features include:
Ranger Custom Trailer w/spare tire.
Yamaha 150 four stroke.
Minn Kota 80 Terrova trolling motor w/iPilot.
Lowrance HDS 7 & HDS 5 depth/fish finders.
Onboard 2 bank battery charger.
12+ rod locker.
4 swivel seats.
2 flip on seat.
Snap in carpet.
Ranger custom travel cover.
Removable bow cushions
Built in cooler
Interior LED courtesy lights
Lots of storage
I’m sure there are things that I’ve missed in the above list of options. This is the perfect fishing boat, and can easily double as a family runabout for skiing, tubing and cruising around.
Boat is located in Detroit Lakes MN. Please call or text for more information. 701-371-509nine

Hey I was curious to see if there were any active fishing clubs near whitebear lake or forest lake
So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands. Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year. Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours. Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in. I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist, but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.
Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

Hey fellas, I developed a free fishing phone app for my fellow fisherman. It’s called FishIQ. I broke down 10 species by their location based on the water temperature. So if you’re looking for quick pointers or interested on where to find other species throughout the seasons give it a try! Hopefully it leads to more fish at the boat!
I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!
I picked up some baby beaver lures they look like an animal swimming. What is the new lures you guys have picked up?

Hello again from Sunset Lodge on Oak Island!
Hope everyone had a great week! Here in the Northwest Angle, things are about as good as they can be, the weather has been decent and just a few showers and storms to contend with. And the fishing has been good! The water temp was between 70 and 73 degrees this week.
Stateside, anglers are finding that pulling night crawlers behind spinner rigs has been working well and catching walleyes. Depths range anywhere from 8 to 25 feet with hammered gold, copper, orange, and pink being the best producers. Areas to target are the flats and mud between Oak Island and Four Blocks, Little Oak, and Crowduck Islands. The South and East side of Oak Island has also been producing fish. Pulling crankbaits in 8 to 12 feet of water has also been working well.
In Ontario, the Musky action has definitely been heating up! With numerous fish being seen and landed throughout the week. Reports of some larger specimens have been steadily coming in but the majority of fish being landed are between the 40" to 45" mark. Rock reefs and points seem to be the best bets for finding one of these giants. Casting bucktails and large spinnerbaits have been the best producers. Walleyes can be found among the reefs and rocky points in Bishop Bay, Tug Channel, Deepwater Bay, Monument Bay and Skeet Island. Big Narrows is also a good bet. Jigs with frozen shiners and fatheads in depths of 20 to 30 feet have been producing limits for anglers. Gold, pink, chartreuse, and orange are top colors.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week! Come visit us soon at Sunset Lodge!
The bug hatch is over! Fishing picking back up again.
Up in Ontario, small reefs are all holding fish and the big reefs down in Little Traverse are all starting to have fish on them, too. The best fishing was in 22-26 feet right on the edge or top of the reef. Little Traverse is the place to be if it is calm enough to fish there. Otherwise, the reefs up by Skeet Island are all holding fish now too and you can get out of the wind. The best was a fluorescent colored jig tipped with a minnow. Jumbo perch are being caught along with the walleyes.
On the Minnesota side, there have been boats all the way from Four Blocks down to Garden Island. Once again, fishing the edges of the reefs if pulling spinners.
We took 9th in the Musky Bowl at Wiley Point this past weekend. Seen a lot of fish but they just wouldn't eat the bait at boatside. The winning team caught 5 muskys in the two days. You can already sign up for next year. It was a great turnout for the first year with 20 teams in it.
Until next week good luck fishing!
Selling 12x12 Muskie, Walleye, Bass decals. $14.99. Perfect for the boat or truck. The decals are printed on 6mm vinyl, UV protected and the art work is original. Message me if interested.
Trolling for walleyes and my son caught this muskie-just shy of 50". I took a picture that didn't show the whole fish, my buddy is holding the full length shot.

By whateverisbiting · PostedI will be going to my cabin a couple hours drive. I will bring all my food and gas with me and not go to any stores there. If I still have to work from home I may work there self quarantine for 14 days. Then you become a local. Then you have to do the same thing coming back home if going out to stores there. Small towns have few hospitals and very limited equipment. That is a real concern. But hopefully will not blow up with very low population density. Can't wait to put the dock in, have a G&T, and put out the lighted bobber!
By mrpike1973 · PostedThankful for my faith in God, my great wife, I have 3 nieces and a nephew do not see them too much. Be thankful for family all of you. I don't have hardly any family left but really enjoy those nieces and nephew when I see them. Thankful for the guys and gals on this site. I have learned lip reading even more and that is a huge help for me right now. I'm also thankful for my Yamaha boat motor best thing I ever bought😀 Thankful my wife loves to fish and comes with anytime she can. She is laid off now but boy do I love being with her. I work second shift Mon-Thursday she works during the week and every weekend it feels like a second honey moon!
By ANYFISH2 · PostedI am grateful to have my faith in God, without my faith life's trials would be much more difficult to navigate. I am grateful for my family, they are source of a great deal of strength. There is nothing like raising my 2 favorite people on earth everyday. I screw up alot, they have always given me a reason to keep going forward. My wife is the most amazing woman in my life. She has to be great, to deal with me everyday. Grateful for my father and my sister, we have always had a close family, but going through my mother's battle and ultimate death from cancer this last year, I know it would have been next to impossible to deal with without them. I can't wait for this virus to leave so I can give both of them a huge hug again. I am grateful for the gifts of my life's journey, the great moments and the bad, everyday is great day, we get so few.
By Chill62 · PostedWell I got out the last three days and I need a vacation from myouting lol. Friday we fished am for tulibee and ended up with 19 before switching in the afternoon for crappies. Found a deep hole and the slabs were STACKED UP!!! Hole was 30-36 feet and fish were 18-bottom. Had to drill a ton of holes and stay mobile. Literally you'd have fish in one hole and 5 feet away nothing. Average size was 12 inches with a few 14s. Saturday tried for tulibee again and I think we got 10 for 7 of us. Switched to the same crappie hole and first 5 fish up the hole were tulibee lol. After a while we found crappies but just couldn't find them. Switched to 4 or 5 other spots then we finally found them. Thought were perch because bottom 5 feet were solid fish. Crappies were averaging 11 inch. Had to stay mobile and drill a lot of holes. kept enough for a supper. Sunday morning my buddy and I went after big tulibee and got a late start (9 am start). We started by targeting spots people hadn't been lately. Instantly we had 3 on the ice. It was weird they were coming out of the mud. After hour half we quit graphing them so took off for new spots. We ended up with 4 fish biggest two were 4 lbs 4 oz and 3 lbs 12 oz. After that we took off for crappies again. We parked the ranger and guess fish wanted to hide under it. Literally had 10 holes drilled with 10 feet of the ranger and we just kept circling the ranger. We did film a YouTube vide and hopefully the wind wasn't too strong for the audio. Sadly I doubt I will make it back out again.

By PRO-V · PostedMine is my wife and our 5 kids (youngest is 29). All are independent and have given us 7 grandkids who are a hoot. Not to mention all of my great friends. I'm only 60 but I've gotten in a massive amount of fishing and hunting since I was 5. Feel sorry for the guys who did nothing but work most of their life thinking they would have their fun at retirement. Doesn't usually work out. I tried to balance work, family and adventure. If I died now I lived a full life but wanna see the kids/grandkids grow up. Their old enough now to have fun with and my days of having to dig a new outhouse hole are over. My son is a huge help now.
By Borch · PostedFor me it's family, friends and faith. My health has been good and I'm currently working through some things health wise. But I'm positive and have found more support and care than I could have imagined. For that, I truly felt blessed. I'm lucky to have a wife who loves me even with my short comings. Again, I'm a very lucky man. I have 6 granddaughters who love to hug and talk to papa. Makes me smile even now as I type this. My 3 adult children are doing well and actually call the old man for advise and like to hang out with me which I really enjoy. My folks are on their way home from south TX. We got to visit and fish with them there this winter. I feel fortunate to be able to do things with them yet. Finally getting out to fish and hunt with all of these freinds and family are what really make me feel like one fortunate guy.
