  1. I also recommend Nikko @ Robs5star Been fishing with him before it was Rob's summer and winter. Always more than accommodating caught my pb walleye out of his huts.
  2. I agree the 115 is under powered. However you would be surprised what the right prop will do. I juuuuust managed to get this load up on plane with three in the boat. With 2 people is jumps up on plane. With 4 it's a bit of a dog but gets on the step no problem. We bought used and got a crazy deal few years ago. When this motor goes a 175 will be on rhe back.
  3. Can confirm a 115 on 20 ft legend is under powered its fine with 2 people but more than that its a dog out of the hole. I'm running a 4 blade 13p prop that helped but thinking of gettin a lower pitched prop for when I have more than 2 people out or camping. . We put a long shaft kicker on ours with no issues however.
  4. I know of a few wheelchair accessible blinds. My kids better be wheeling me out. If you ever want to get out shag. I'm shure a few of us could put it together. Misfish could you pop a 410 with your eyes? Just packed the truck headed out in the morning...
  5. I have already told you this but Congrats! Over the last 5 years or so Waterfowling as become my number 1 obsession. I Still love fishing but there's something about being In the marsh and hearing and seeing the world spring I to life at sunrise. All my fishing buddies don't even call sept - Jan any more.
  6. Yea where did Pete get to. Fished Sal.on with him o ce and had a blast.
  7. Nice shooting.... but where was my invite lol. I need to do a fly in some day
  8. Love it.. I diddnt make it up the last two years but will be up there at ice out this spring.
  9. Glad you got it sorted... if it's not one thing it's another with boats.
  10. I grew up eating bass at the cottage as a kid. I still like smallies from cold water. Just ignore the looser and enjoy your day. Guy would loose his mind if he saw my cooler after a day on Erie or Lake o.
  11. We got a good deal about 3 k 3 Years ago. The link feature integrates the sonar and the motor more. Allows you to follow lake contours... ie. I can tell the motor to keep me in 14 ft of water and follow the shoreline at whatever mph I tell it. Allows for more saved tracks and waypoints. Has a nicer remote. I'm sure it does more but I haven't taken the time to learn it. Biggest features for me are spotlock. Spot lock jog ( move in 5 ft increments in any direction while spotlocked) Auto pilot. I use it when drifting to keep my heading down on st Clair River as well as slow the drift. Also use auto pilot on erie and lake o trolling. We use the kicker for thrust and I set a heading on the hummingbird can dile in exact speed and heading and not have to have my hands on the wheel all day I actualy bungee the steering wheel straight. Complete gamecganger. Let's me fish instead of drive the boat all day.
  12. Ulterra with I pilot link. Had it for 3 years no issues so far.
  13. Looks like an awesome trip. Awesome memories. We have a cheap champion ( the tiny one) it's not quiet but runns our onboard 20 amp. No issues for a few hours a night to keep it topped up when camping. Have a 100ft extension cord so put the genny off in the woods to keep noise down. Want a Honda but can't bite the bullet.
  14. We have the auto deploy... worth every penny. Especialy in the rough stuff. I can deploy and spot lock from the helm. 19.5 ft aluminum we run 24 v and never run it down in a day. Running crown floor sweeper batteries.
  15. I have a cheap Shimano 4000 series I take down south. Rinse it off.
  16. Lots of walleye in the lake off the grand in 2nd half of the summer. Pick your days it can get nasty.
  17. That's why we bring my dad Fishing was great average size was 20 inches probably caught 100 the last 2 days. 6 in the first 2 days lol
  18. Well... I have been pretty absent posting here for a while 2 kids in 2 years and a pandemic what can I say. Was supposed to go to Nipigon this year after skipping last year due to the 'vid and the birth of my seccond child. Crown land camping was up in the air till last moment this year and so one of the regulars took a contract to frame a few houses with no guarantee we were going to be able to go. So we cancelled . We all had some vacay planned but the 15 hr drive would cut into fishing......Plan B We endeded up north of North bay and south of New liskard. Boats loaded heavy enough to not get on plane for the 40k ride in, mostly beer and single malt weight. Lake was down 4 ft of water, unpleasant as the fist 20 k of our trip was normaly through 10-15 fow only kissed once , We got pounded by 40k wind the first few days not able to fish prime spots. Enough with the negatives, what we did have was a few days of stellar fishing 20 -25 inch walleye and two years of chirps and laughter saved up, made for a wonderful release. Even ran into fellow ofc'er chuckenwind up there was good to catch up, Haddent seen him since we braved the snow one fall like lunatics to chase Auroras dropped In the wrong lake a bunch of years ago... long story. Even rumors he caught a Walter of a lifetime. Maybe he can chime in with a pic of the beast. Hope everyone's doing OK. Hopeing to do a little more fishing this year. Here's the goods.
  19. Just ditched the platform an went to a flip down ladder way nicer
  20. End of May.. I'm usuualy slamming fish of Bronte in 160-230. But I haven't been out yet this year. This time of year fish can be whereever they want. I would suggest reading Dan Keatings books to anyone new to trolling
  21. Oh boy your in troubble now... nothing compares to the enjoyment I get from chasing brookies...
  22. Crown floor sweeper batteries...oh wait you said lightweight... scratch that. Although they are the best batteries I've ever run.
