  1. I wouldn't touch a Ultrex with a 10 foot pole. I know of at least 6 guys who tried them and brought them back because they didn't work worth beans. I have a 70# powerdrive with co pilot that will be for sale soon. E-mail me if your interested. Probably sell for around $350. [email protected]
  2. So after running this combo this year I will give my pros and cons. 1st off the only con I have is the weight. Its heavy with a 10" auger but not bad with the 8". Pros are it is fast, clean , quiet and drills a lot of holes on 1 charge. Reverse is nice to clear holes out. I got 40 holes on a 10" cut no problem. Easy to charge and all I do is take the battery pack off with 2 easy screws loosened and charge until light goes green. For a perm or even people who don't want to mess with gas and smell this is a great option.
  3. Digger auger mount all the way. The best I have used.
  4. Have no clue but a lot. I fish 4 to 6 times a week. My motor is a 04 Yamaha 115 and its still going strong.
  5. For ride glass all the way butif I beached my boat a LOT I would have to stay alum or us a double anchor system and get wet coming in and out to the boat.
  6. The Brick I think they are called.
  7. I just put my Hideout together and I think its my favorite Otter house. Im 6'6" and 280 pounds and I was worried about room but man it has plenty. I think the Hideout will be a huge seller this season. Cant wait for 1st ice. The basement just isnt the same. LOL. I put a string of Northern bright lights LED lights in it and had to buy a dimmer switch because it was so bright with out it.

    New Boat!

    Deam Marshal is the only guy I would buy a new Skeeter from. He knows his shiznitand dont blow no smoke. Joe that Lund is a awesome boat but like you said they are PRICEY! I did hear they arent as fast as the skeeter when comparing apples to apples. Verry very well layed out boats and the attention to detail is awesome. The best rod storage of any boat I have seen.
  9. For vertical jigging lakers I like a 7' to 7'9" medium with a fast tip. I like a spinning rod but a baitcaster will also work fine. $215 is pricey for a rod like that in my opinion. I have many other rods that are in the $120 range that work just fine. Being custom though you get what you pay for. If I had a choice I would go Batson over rainshadow though.
  10. Call Jay Soderbloom he does all my props.
  11. Get a good set of radials. Stay away from the carlisle tires. I found them to be junk. Never had a good set out of 3. The radials I have had for 2 years are doing awesome.
  12. I use a heavy duty plastic milk crate. Rope dries out well in it.

    New Boat!

    I am also in the same spot as you Joe. I cant get a 20' boat in the garage so I need a 18 or 19' with swing tongue. After looking at and riding in about every glass boat in that catagory Im down to 2 boats. The Skeeter wx 1910 is my 1st choice and the Nitro is next but Im not a Mercury fan so Im betting my next boat will be the skeeter 1910 with 200 yamaha and 9.9 kicker. The 1910 is the best riding 19' boat I have been in . When propped right you get a good hole shot and touch low 50's at times. Only thing I wish was different is the front rod locker. I wish it had 2 levels. I do not like the lay out of Rangers or Tritons. Although they are both beautiful boats. The Yarcraft and Warrior are nice but heavy and slower. I wish I could afford the Lund GL but then again I would pay to get a Yamaha on it. I like that you can take the 2 rear side storage bins out if you like. I need a lot of rear room for all the trolling we do. The skeeter mx 2025 is awesome as well but I like the depth of the WX series better. The skeeter 1850 is nice but a bit small for me. I dont like the Ranger Angler much. I think apples to apples for the money the Skeeter wx 1910 is a very hard boat to beat. Being 6'6" tall I would also get the taller full windshield on it. Even if it slowed it down a tad.
  14. Jiggin raps, VMC Tinglers and Tumblers, Lindy rattlin flyers, stop signs, Swedish pimples, slender spoons, JR's flash spoons and northland forage minnow spoons. For jigs I like whistler jigs, vmc neon jigs, glow jem n eys and many home made color schemes.
