I know what you are going thru. I ran a Skeeter WX2000T with a 150 Yamaha for 6 years, then decided a smaller boat was in order. Ordered a Backtroller without a motor as John was having trouble getting Suzuki's then so I put a 90 hp. Yamaha on it. The boat is made like few others and is top quality. Not a fast boat but a good boat. backtrolls well but a bit squirrely at wide open throttle in larger waves just hang on to the tiller handle. this is where Johns new tiller assist would solve that problem. For me after running a 20' glass boat then going smaller I did struggle a bit so I ended up taking a butt kicking and sold it. I now run a Skeeter MX 1825 and love it. The wife likes the windshield and the 150 SHO is more than enough motor to serve our needs. Overall you will not find a better built, higher quality tiller boat at 17' than the backtroller, you give up some space but if it is big enough for you and the wife you will love it. Good luck in your search.

We once got a ticket for having oar rigs on our canoes. We rigged up our 19' freighters with outriggers to support oars on and that was considered mechanical and a no no. Just like portage wheels are allowed on the motoized portions but not in the non motorized as they are once again considered mechanical. Lots of wasy to argue that one and we tried. How about a lantern or cook stove? Your fishing pole reel, seems to be a bit of lack of comon sense here.

Made the round of Leech Lake today looking at jobs and the main lake is locked up must have been last night. Agency bay shingobee bay and others are ice capped. Walker bay is open ans well as Kabakona bay has little ice either. Kabakona lake is all open as it is a deep lake. Some of the smaller lakes around here have ice that may be walkable but be really careful and safe. Look to smaller lakes up twords Blackduck and you may find something. Next weekend should be good to go if the snow does not mess things up too badly. Be safe and have fun!!

We were fishing LOTW in early December say 15-18 years ago. We had good ice out past Pine Island about 8" out to 15-20' with open water as far as one could see past that. Really windy out of the north that whole day and it got below 0 that night. The next day I was out 100 yards farther on 6" of black solid ice. That was that time. The stars aligned and it was a great outing. Do not count on that everytime. Every time is different so be cautious and move slowly and you might live a long full life. LOL!!!

Electrical tape works fine with no damage. If you are worried just put the firs wrap or two sticky side up then sticky side down. Now nothing wil lstick tothe corck. Being an electrician we were always taught sticky side down but hey I am just thinking outside the box here. LOL!!

We used to fish trout in Canada and ran 30 -50 miles one way into the lakes we fished. Slush was always an issue so we mounted tubes to our sleds that we could put conduit into and then sewed a canvas with pockets for the conduits into. We would get a wind break of sorts 3 sided and 3-4' tall. Easy to set up and take down and light. worked well for us in that situation.

I am goint to say the Bemidji Walker area. We are within 1 or 2 hours of the best lakes in MN, LOTW, Red, Leech, Winnie, Cass. Not to mention the abundance of smaller lakes that can be as good or beter than the big lakes. We have over 1000 lakes within 1 hour of us the choices are endless.

I purchased on from Smokeyhills Outdoors right in town there. They work well but you have to rember that now you have an extra pivot point so going down steep landings and hills can be tricky at best. On the flat lake it will sway a bit at higher speeds 15 -20 MPH but at slower speeds it works well. Just be careful of hills and drops even short ones. If the hill is slippery the house will ltry to pass you and it can get ugly in a hurry. I speak form experience here. LOL!!
