Hey Stranger's~

Well, I went and bought a boat.

Looking to start up Chartering next spring.

Anyway's I'm wondering about name suggestions for the boat and charter name. The classic play on names would be nice. I was thinking 'Mother Superior' for the boat but, that is already taken. Or 'Strange Bru-la' Charter's... But that seemed a little weak.

Have fun~

p.s. BD110 - can you tow 12000#'s + trailer from Ohio? shocked.gif

Butch, good to hear from you. What kind of boat did you get. We finally came up with a name for are boat. After talking with Joel we decided on "Never Enuff" So if anyone sees a brown 20ft starcraft islanded with that on the back cooler. Give us a call on the radio. Butch, let me know when you get her, I would like to check it out.

Butch congrats. The happiest days for a big lake boater is the the day you buy the boat and the day you sell it.

I don't like Mother Superior or 'Strange Bru-la' Charter's.

In fact if I were looking for boat a charter I'd stay away from 'Strange Bru-la' Charter's. grin.gif Don't realy what to find out what a "Strange Bru-la" is when I'm on the big lake. grin.gif

Anyway I'm coming up blank right now for a name, well besides ACME Charters. grin.gif

Good Luck.

Not sure if this will instill any confidence in your boat, but how about "EDMUND FITZGERALD II"? confused.gif

Thanks for the suggestions!

I will start up a web site soon.

First I have to get the boat here from Ohio. frown.gif

Were you thinking of chartering out of duluth or superior? It's a tough business, a lot different than taking out a crew of friends when you have a hot hand. Good luck to you though if you wind up going for it. Hopefully the gas prices will let you make enough to pay your mate. Definately post a link to the website when you get her going.

Matt Duluthguy has been on the lake as a 1st mate for a few years. He knows what he is getting into.

Good luck Butch and I know you will do fine. The 1st few years will be the test but you know that.

Butch, I'am not very good at naming things. Heck took all summer to come up with a name for our boat.

my vote would be "fish on board charters"

Any way to put the twins names together for the boat name?

First I have to get the boat here from Ohio.

Congratulations, nice boat.

Try this guy, he has a large hydraulic trailer to haul boats up to 40ft, hes name is Dave, 612 490 1575, tell him Val sent you. Right now he's in FL hauling a 33ft back here.

There's no problem hauling boat from OH, just be sure you get all the permits since it's a 12ft beam and it's an Oversize Load, but bigger problem is trailer, you need a special type to move V Drive inboard boats.

Thanks Val for the tip.

I give him a call. The normal price I was quoted (6 times) was $3K. I can have a trailer built for $5K there.

Ran - Joel thought twin screws would be a go name - Of course, I had to throw him overboard after that. shocked.gif

The twins names are Isabelle (Belle) Juliette and Paris Antoinette - so....?

Thanks for the promo Northlander!

You bud still on the no-carb diet - oh, except Leinenkugel's? smirk.gif

"Twin i's"

(Toni and Juli)

(by any chance, twin I/O's??)

or perhaps "TeeJay" or "JayTee"

"Daddy's Girl(s)"

or, since they're little infants, "Lil Stinkers" or "Stinkeez"

"Mom Is Mad"

how 'bout "I Got Mine"

or "Dad's vette"

"Boopers" or "Upchucks"

Here's some not related to family:

"Fish Dawg" or "Dawg Fish"

"Pink One Won" don't even ask! That was for me

"Tangled Up" or "Birds Nest"

"Sunrise Pink" or "Pink Sunrise" we fishermen like 'em both smirk.gif

"Morning Mist"

"The Herschel" as in, I traded away my future for this!?!

For a computer junkie:

"Giga Bites"

"Hertz So Good"

"Red Snapper" okay, okay, that's another one we fishermen like!

Here's some spoonerisms, sort of:

"Peaky Snete"

"Crisco Sid"


"Ale's Wife"

"It Smelt"

"4age Fish"

"No Lawyers" as in, lawyers=eelpout

"Not Poutin"

"Pout 'n Trout"

OK guys, get on this. Let's have some fun!

Butch welcome back. While I cannot think of a proper name for your vessel, (that wouldn't warrant some improper thoughts) it would still be great to get you out fishing with the gang. Give me a shout if you have free time or....Join us for some ice fishing this year smile.gif

BD110, we are waiting for your post in the ice fishing league? It wouldn't be the same with out you.... tongue.gif

What is wrong with "The Paris Belle"?

Or "Double Ette"

"Ette Two Brula' " with the long A sound?


Sister Ship

Hen Wrecker (As in a female fish.......)

Good luck and if you come up with a good name, I will remember it, I haven't chartered up there for a few years so I am pretty sure I will need some one new to go out with....

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?  
    • cm012419
      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
    • Pat McGraw
      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline. 
    • CigarGuy
      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
