Nice rig, you'll love the zuke. I'm running a Suzuki 140 and it's an excellent motor. Quiet, reliable and very good on gas!

Trolling or strictly vertical jigging like on the Detroit and 4 guys is no problem and I do it in my 18 foot Superfisherman regularily. Casting, forget it. Maybe 3 guys max.

Repowering is expensive and you never get the value of the newer motor out of the boat if you end up selling it down the road. Unless you plan on keeping this boat for a long long time, throwing a...

I fished out of a tiller for years. I'd never go back to one, especially if I where getting older. As mentioned, with GPS enabled trolling motors the need to back troll is pretty much a thing of...

I have an elite 7ti with total scan transducer. The 2d image is fantastic. Probably better than my raymarine a78. Perhaps it's the older transducer that you have, maybe it's time to install a new...

I only have a little df140 4 stroke on my Starcraft, but it is an excellent motor. Quiet, fuel efficient and it starts every time. It's a 2009 and I expect it will be with me for a long time! I've...

Having actually done this on a slightly smaller boat than the rebel (earlier version of Lund fury 16). I actually ran a tohatsu 3.5hp as a kicker. It trolled fine, and would push the boat in...

The reports from Ontario guys that are using lakemaster Ontario so far are that it is unreliable and shoals, and contours are way off. And these are on well charted lakes like Simcoe. I think I...

Can't go wrong with tekota 600lc's either. I run 2 of them for my wire divers when salmon fishing. Bullet proof reels and capable of stopping angry kings. They won't be quite as quick though!

They will be just fine, I've had no problem with my 17 size reels even when ive picked up the odd salmon. I have never had a 25lber on one though.

I ran the XI5 for the last 2 seasons. I switched to MK last fall. The spot lock sucks in comparison, and I am not brand loyal at all. I have run raymarine, lowrance, motorguide and MK/bird, and...

No way would I pay 90 percent upfront without a sea trial. Another deal will always come along. In this case, the broker is definitely working for the seller as well as himself. Keep that in mind!

Sealine 17's are excellent for any kind of walleye fishing. Why you'd need bigger is beyond me (other than leadcore etc.). I've tried okuma and they are clunkers in my opinion. I still keep a...
