Boat names and ports of choice

Recommended Posts

Every few years someone starts a thread of boat names and ports of choice. Being that the lake fishing is firing up, Id like to start another as to help each other determine who fishes where, along with fishing experience so we can help others who may be just starting out if we happen to come across them at the dock.

Name-Duane Jones

Boat name -HeavenBound-

Boat make-24' Penn Yan Contender navy blue soft top

Boat name origin- From a very good friend who passed away with pancreatic cancer 5 years ago-

Port of choice-Oak Orchard-

Years fishing Lake Ontario-31

Residence while at the Oak-Lakeside Beach-loop A or Captains Cove

Notes-Track me down anytime to say hello. I'd be more than willing to share any current info while at the Oak.

Special Note- Again many thanks to Shirley and Joe's past reports along with the Charter Capt's and rec boats who provided selfless info from the lake. Best of luck to all this season and think safety first-Duane

Name: Tim Bromund

Boat Name: FishStyx

Boat Name Origin: From a boat graphic idea I came up with (if I ever get it painted on the boat), Picture a viking long boat, with the grim reaper standing in the bow, skeleton poling the boat down the river Styx and 2 guys fishing off the back on their way to purgatory.

Boat Make 1986 Thompson 8652 Offshore Hardtop (24')

Home Port: Olcott

Years Fishing Lake O: By boat - 13, Shore/Pier/Trib - 22, Lake Erie Tribs - 31, Overall, since I was old enough to hold a fishin' pole.
