goin fishin

Asking $200 for the canoe, it is a 16ft,76lb fiberglass canoe. I originally bought it last year from a friend. It needed some fixing up, so I repaired some cracks , and gave her a new paint job, dark green in color. I used it last year w/my 55lb thrust trolling motor, and it cruised through the water. Oh yeah, it comes w/the trolling motor mount. Sorry, I don't have any pictures. I will try to get some in the near future. You can reach me at 612-822-6194 and ask for Dan. I live in South Minneapolis, very close to Lake street and Nicollet ave.

Chow for now,

Dan

Nitrotmaxx, I don't have pictures yet. I am not willing to go down on price as I paid $175 for it last year and spent a good amount of time restoring it. I also paid $20 to get the trolling motor mount. Although, I don't have pictures yet, the cracks were on the railing and I fixed them using fiberglass sheets and the epoxy glue used to bind it together. I did three layers of fiberglass sheets, and plenty of sanding in between to smooth it all out. It is the same thickness as the rest of the canoe. Sorry to be so blunt about the price, but I spent too much time on this canoe, and would rather keep it than lose money. I have no idea what year the canoe was made, probably early '90s and the model of the old towne is not known. It does not say.

I hope this helps.

Later,

Dan

Sorry fellas, I didn't get my friends camera and my scanner for the computer is broken. I will try and get the pics up asap. The pics will be in my post, Netman. In the meantime, I will have to take out the canoe since it is so nice out and do a little crappie fishin. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

Chow for now,

Dan

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.
