I would say, around here, a 24' Proline open fisherman with twin 150 4 strokes would be perfect! Oh, and an aluminum or stainless T-Top lined with rocket launchers!

Princecraft 18'6 with a 135 or 150 optimax. Awesome rig perfect for every game fish aroung here!

Jetcraft 1825 SK
115hp Mercury 4 stroke main motor
9.9hp Mercury kicker motor
Scotty pro-pack electric downriggers

A typical end of winter fishing trip. Access requires 4wd with chains on all 4 tires, a shovel and a lot of luck! Excellent lake trout and brown trout fishing this time of year... and we usually have the entire lake to ourselves.


Here sa pic of a lake trout that smacked an 8" lure and he had this 10" kokanee salmon stuck in his throat.

This was my favorite boat.

my favorite boat is a Triton. But I own a Bass Tracker 185 with a 50 hp Mercury. Motorguide trolling motor. This is definitely a fishing boat, nothing more or nothing less. We love it. It gets the job done.

give me a

gambler with a 250 on it in calm water.

An Express 18 ft Aluminum with a 50 or 60 horse tiller motor on the back. Plenty of room to fish out of, as well as duck hunt out of. The perfect boat for around here...

I have always owned a Ranger. They may not be the fastest on the water but the fishability of these boats is second to none....would love to get a hold of a new Z20 some time :wink:

I would have to say a Lowe 1760 john boat. Or a seaark john boat.
Im a die hard bowfisherman and these are the boats that have worked good for me.

Any boat that I'm in fishing.:wink:

I have too many right now. Five

2 - 12 footers

1 - 14' alum.

1 - 20' Sylvan pontoon

1 - 18' wide/deep Starcraft. (my favorite fishing rig I own)

Oh, forgot one. A old 17' Chrysler Fin-n-Fun glass bass boat that I need to sell.

I guess I got six laying around.:confused:

In case you have not guessed:wink: mine favorite is a Stratos. Some boats run fast some handle rough water great but a Stratos does both.

July 9th, 2006, 11:06 PM
