I Currently fish Lake Erie with a 17' lund Adventure full windshield 125 hp Mercury. Love the boat does a great job on the lake. My problem is I love to fish the Maumee Walleye run, been doing it for 35 years. Problem is my Lund is way to nice for the river tracking thru mud everyday to access it while it is on the bank, boulders during low water ect. I am thinking of getting a 23' flat bottom aluminum boat perfect for the river, it has a 115 hp Yamaha and an 8 hp kicker. Would also make nice water fowl boat being factory camo. What is everybody's thoughts ? Could I even fish Erie in a flat bottom boat on Erie? I know it would be a rough ride. Would I be sick of my choice fishing on Erie with a 23' flat bottom boat , it is extra wide. I would like a bigger Lund In the future but if the flat bottom boat would fit both needs that would be the way to go.
