Time to get ready


Recommended Posts

For fishing that is  <thumbsup>


Started getting the old (1970) Seasprite ready for this year post-12828-0-10316600-1397002963_thumb.j post-12828-0-96061500-1397002997_thumb.j 


Charging the batteries right now, this weekend I'm going to change the plugs and lower unit oil.


So how many of you fish and what is your favorite catch?


Mine is crappie and the biggest was 16" 


 I'll see if I can find a couple of pics of some past catches and post them later.

Haven't been in three years (building our retirement home) but plan to go pretty soon. Love to fish the small out of the way creeks and rivers from a 10' solo canoe or 12' creek boat using ultra light tackle (2# test). On that rig a 1/2# Bream is a battle!


Looks like some home builds on the top canoes and creek boat.

Fish Lake Superior and river fish the tributaries. Late season start this year. A motivational picture below. Tired of ice fishing want open water.

Yep, the 10' was the first one I built about 30 years ago.  Based on the Wee Lassie design and weighs in at 16#, the one beside it is a 12'-6" C-1 solo boat I built for light white water (class 3 and below) that weighs in at a whoppin' 19#. I also have a triple seat "Barge" 15'-9" we use for canoe camping that is fairly heavy at 55# (you can solo it but it is a real bitch!).  The creek boat I sold to a friend and he uses it for fly fishing for Trout in small rivers.  It is 12'-6" and weighs about 50#.  I've probably designed and built 40 boats for friends over the past 30 years and plan to build more as my "retirement" job. If you get interested in building a strip boat let me know and I'll send you an AutoCAD drawing file you can have full size frame drawings printed from. They are as much fun to build as they are to use!  Go catch some big ones!
