New Rig

Here are a couple pics of the new rig. I came home from work yesterday and the kid is out there sitting in the boat with the stereo going doing his homework! The light is not good so you can't tell too well, but it's forest green with gold sparkles. Too good for us, but I figure it's worth at least anothe 1/2 dozen fish in the boat this year.

Nice rig Propster! Hope it fishes great and brings you lots of fun times. Won't be long before you come home from work and the boat will be gone, as the boy has it out on the lake already!!!!

REAL nice boat man!!

I'm not quite in the market for a new ride yet but thats exactly what I've been looking at... a late 90s 690vs or 692vs. There are some beauties out there!

Next purchase is going to be a house and I keep telling 'cjac' that I'm finding more nice boats for sale in my house search than I am houses. Guess its a priority thing. grin

10,000 - it's a '95, but in pretty good shape. And a price I could afford. I see boats in general are comin' down in price - I saw I think a '97 or '99 in the Tribune loaded for a little more than this one, I think maybe $12,500 or something. Can't wait to slime it up.

Someone poster on here a while a ago "I never get sick of looking at a Ranger" very true.

Crystal Peirz had a 96 champion 20 footer whith a 96 200hp merc and they wanted 15k. I called on it and was a little shocked when the salesman told me the price. A week later it was gone...

Had her out on the maiden voyage this weekend...oooohhh

I think we got somethin' here. And even though it was windy as heck the kid ran it right up there on the trailer no problem. You guys were all right on - bunks are the way to go.

Bunks are the way to go! Everytime you put her on no matter the weather condition, it's always right on! Never have to back in again, readjust it, or worry about it sliding off prematurely. Plus it's faster than rollers when loading and speeds up the accesses on weekends.

Glad to hear the maiden voyage went well!

I spent the last few nights working on a hull maintenance (dock rash and a head-butt with a dock post....don't ask) and was noticing all the little nicks and marks on the underside from the rollers as well. I quit looking after a bit.....

Bunks next time for sure.

Keith -

Nice rig. I'm looking forward to taking a spin. Also it was good to fish "with" you and the boy opening day. I wish we could have found a few more eyes.

We'll have to hook up once the real season starts.

Take care.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
