Did the owner give you anything on paper signed by the marina that their inspection found the transom to be OK? If not and he doesn't have anything in writing, I'd negotiate a sale price contingent...

I'd try local sportsmen clubs like Downriver Walleye Federation -- they have a lot of guys that fish Erie, Detroit River and Lake Saint Clair. My guess is there are more guys that would be interested...

like the other posters, I'd leave my tank full and be sure to add the correct amount of stabilizer. Also, a good idea to run the boat motor after you add the stabilizer so that all the gas in your...

Tough call -- if the boat is in really good shape I'd try to find a used motor. A new mercury 200HP is around $20K last time I looked. You might find a used one (or Yamaha) for 1/2 that. I don't see...

I'd find a good guide and go with them a couple times. You'll find good areas to fish and they might know someone you can partner with as well as local clubs.
Good luck.

I think if you buy a boat that is popular in your area and sell it in 2/3 years, you can come awful close to recouping your original investment. I bought a couple Lunds new that were rigged for my...

amazing
I've fished the Detroit River for a very long time -- not many places with a bottom as clean as what's in your video. Must be in the channel.
Thanks

very good. a little spooky how they are suddenly behind the lure. Reminds me of pike spearing in an ice fishing shanty many years ago. Sit there staring down in the hole and all of a sudden a pike is...

I've fished that area for years. A very good choice vs Canada in my opinion. August can be tough but Lake St Clair is pretty much always good for smallmouth. The issue is that area is big -- lots of...

Boston Whaler has a new 230 Outrage. When it comes to fiberglass boats, BW is hard to beat for quality and resale.

The 2000 with a 115 CT is a hard combination to beat. Lots of room and plenty of power. However, I'd think about the tiller vs a Side Steer. Duck hinting on a cold windy day and you can get a bath in...

CT for getting on plane sooner and?or with big loads. One other plus is it helps maneuverability around the dock. No idea how it impacts trolling. Can't imagine it would be a negative.
