I cant figure out how to post pics, but my boat is a 1950 crestliner with a 1957 evinrude fasttwin. Why I like it it was only $1000 and the motor purrs like a kitten. I cant figure why I don't like it because it gets me on the water.

I use Scotty's. It was between them and down east. I like the Scottys better cause I like the manual release. I don't trust the rods to stay in the down east when I have my rods at such extreme angles.

This is one of my boats and it is a 14 ft. jon boat that i can drag, roll and shove where needed to fish for Muskie. It ain't pretty and it ain't fancy but guess what, Muskie fishing ain't for looking pretty and sure as heck ain't for being fancy. I like it because it's deep enough, don't leak, and it cost around $350.00 and it's paid for. What I don't like about it is it don't have one of those bimini tops and i tend to get sunburned now and then. I would also like for it to have a room added to it like a pontoon, so i could sleep on it, butttt that would be getting fancy. HUH, Fish On!!

Here is my rig at the PMTT last year. What I like about it is we can troll anywhere from 8 to 20 rods depending on how many people I have on board. I also love having a bathroom and showing off the nice deer I shot last year. Downsides would be having to turn around often to pick up drunk passengers who fell overboard and the limited 12 mph top speed.

LK,I thought you would be fishing or learning the lake today.If you are going to be a guide you got to learn every spot on top and under water.I wouldn't even be fishing,just learning the lake.I've fished the lake from the start 1978, and still don't know half the good spots.The fish are a biting!

Where is that you're fishing at? Beautiful lake. I have Clear Fork so not interested in "stealing" your lake or anything. Wouldn't mind pleasure boating there.

Mine is just a 1977 Mon Ark. Bought it for like $2k. Needs a new transom ($500 or so DIY). Motor runs strong for being a 1968 I believe.

Spitting image of this:
Muskie & Pike Discussions

Otherwise we were using my buddies 14' aluminum v-bottom. Gets a little sketchy on Clear Fork with the wind, but she's stable.
