Z-7

Recommended Posts

My dad and I have finally got to do some real fishing out of his new Nitro Z-7. I was very impressed. We upgraded from an '81 Skeeter so anything would have been better, but I have fished out of quite a few newer, bigger boats going no-boat in tournaments so I did have something to compare it to. We were out on Saturday in the strong winds and stayed almost completely dry. I ran about 40mph in some pretty choppy stuff and had forgot to strap the rods on the front deck down. They didn't even bounce at all. I was also impressed with the trolling motor. We had a 65# MK on our 15.5'Skeeter and only went up to an 82# MG. It is not underpowered at all. I don't want to start an aurgument over which brand is better, but I'll nevere be buying a MK again. We did do some prop adjustments on the MG to make it more weedless though. All in all I am very pleased with the boat. By the way the first bass my dad caught out of his new boat went a little over 5lbs so he started out good.

How big of motor do you have on it again! Just wondering how fast it goes with the motor you have on it.

We got a 150 opti on it. My dad said that he got it up to 64 mph but I wasn't with him. We had a good day on saturday, but no, it doesns't catch more fish than the old one, but it is more comfortable to fish out of.

    • Butler turning down the offer was a no brainer...if he signed it this year he would lose out on like $60 million opposed to if he signs after this year.  Sure he could blow out a knee and not get signed but odds are in his favor that he waits a year gets same contract but for $60 million more.  NO BRAINER!!  We offered it out of respect but knew he was not going to sign it...
    • I'd like to see you cut them in half first.......😋
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Water temperatures are starting in the low 70’s in the morning, reaching mid to upper 70’s in the evening.

      Minnesota walleye action can be hot running deep diving crank-baits straight, down rigging or lead core. Soft bottom areas can also be worked with spinners and a night crawler.  Fish have been favoring gold on bright days and orange, chartreus or pink in low light.  Many larger northern pike this last week in the boat via crank-baits just outside of rock reefs and points.

      Canadian walleye fishing has been more productive away from reefs and points in soft bottomed areas. The best method is to pull a spinner to find concentrations along the bottom and switch to jigging to fill out limits.

      Musky attitude in Canada varies day to day. Plenty of fish are still being caught in shallow weeds including a couple of 50+ giants this past week.  Fish are also being caught in more traditional mid-summer spots such as rock reefs and points.  The most productive baits this week were crane baits or other flat baits, buck tails and top waters. 

      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge
       
    • we do a package similar to big dave's shrimp boil but with walleye layer of sliced new taters on the bottom, then the walleye filet, add carrots, bell pepper and sweet onion from the garden, w/butter pat and old bay i seal the packet and poke once with a fork to let some of the steam escape. on the grill at 350 for 40 minutes  
    • 5 qts pickled green beans, 2-2gal jars cukes.
    • Port Washington has been hot but mostly cohos.  A lot can change in a couple weeks.  Will wait and keep our options open as long as we can.
    • Do you boil the eggs before smoking them?
    • that's my thoughts to Bobber...
