What kind of boat do you use to chase these critters? Whatever it is, post up a pic or 2....

Here's my rigs. I fish the river 90% of the time, so I use a jet for most of my fishing.

Here's what I use for the lakes...

Would like to get a Riverpro one day and a fancy glass multispecies boat, but these two have treated me very well so far and I have no complaints.

Here is mine. Model year 2000 Triton 189 with a 2007 150 hp Optimax. The original motor crapped out and I had to repower. This probably isn't intended to be a classified add but if anyone is interested, I'm probably going to order a new boat this winter and will be looking to sell this one.

That is a sharp looking boat. Curious as to what you are looking to get out of it. Could you PM me?

That fisher looks like a great river/small water boat, and if the starcraft is anything like the tracker, it handles the big chop well. Nice selection you have there!

Fisher Marsh Hawk. Picked up used in April 2010 and has served me well. If luck goes my way I'm thinking about a jet or maybe even a center console to get back to a little more striper fishing next fall. Either way w/ the power trim this boat gets me to most places I want to go for muskies. Getting psyched to hit the rivers again soon

The other part of my fleet. 3 Kayaks that we use for river camping/smallie trips. Got one ski in 2009 from the yak before I had a boat and this one last fall when the draw down at MC made it impossible for "most" to launch.

That looks like a real nice rig mike! You could always get a jackplate and a jet lower end for your honda that you have on there now, and use that boat for double duty... After you get comfortable with the process, swapping lower ends only takes about an hour.
