  1. Where are you located. That could play a role. For instance. In the Kingston, ont area there are very few charter boats that operate in the spring and summer. IMO there is a living that could be made there but it won't be 100k that's for sure. You would need to determine what income you need to make per year, divide that by months of fishable water. Then out of those months how many days you could fish and how many days you would lose do to unfavourable weather etc. Once you know how many days you could fish you can decide how much costs per trip / overhead you're looking at and see what rates you would have to Charge to make it viable. It can be good money when it's good weather, the bookings are happening and nothing is breaking but you have to budget for those expenses and cancellations etc. My .02 cents is it's a tough gig based on seeing several of my friends operate their business's. each of them have other means to offset their income.

  2. Wanted

    Ya you're right. I like to keep my decorations clean so I wash them fairly often.
  3. Wanted

    Ah yes the holy grail. Hope you find some Mike
  4. No sir. Just as we stated above. Have fun!
  5. I troll 30lb braid. Could easily use 15-20lb on Slr and lake o but the diameter of 30lb is almost perfect for precision trolling data to track dive curves of my baits. I Don't jig or cast so no opinion there.
  6. Not sure I understand the question. You are required to have a valid fishing license and follow all fishing regulations. You must also possess all required safety equipment aboard your boat. Hope that helps. Where you're fishing would help to determine which rules to follow.
  7. Great motor. These are bullet proof. I have the long shaft model with controls. No power tilt tho. Purrs like a kitten. My buddy has one on his 27' sportcraft also and works awesome in that application as well.
  8. Where are you located? No cover?
  9. I hope u sold that ducer for more than 140$
  10. What's it come with?
  11. I have fished lakers in March with 35 degree surface temps and caught in 19-25 fow on shoals. It's also routine as soon as ice out happens to fish them on flats with deep water around them in 25-40 fow.
  12. Prob pretty accurate. Could be deeper but shouldn't be far.
  13. Single hook or treble hook? Which do you run and why? ...yes I'm bored and have cabin fever lol
  14. I'm sure it was an incredibly tough couple years, sorry for your loss. Here's to finding some passion in fishing again. Welcome back.
