They are legendary, Al. Well earned, IMO.Ellis, those Whalers are some of the best built boats. Very stable. Nice work! Those snappers don't stand a chance.

Thanks, Mike.Ellis, Nice job on the Whaler, looks good. :thThumbsU
In the creeks and bays I like to use 4 to 6 inch swimmers, Glenn. Bombers, Rebels, Rapalas and Redfins to name a couple. My favorite is a "chicken scratch" color Bomber though.>>>>>>>>>>>>>
So that's what happened to those old pallets I left out back.....:sidelaugh
Seriously--anything will do in a pinch--Fish now (safely) and fix it right later on.
What bait are you using for stripers? Lead jig heads with a trailer? Maybe a strip of white meat?
Inquireing minds here need to know----
darn, wish I was there----:dunno:
Thanks Jim.Very nice Ellis !, looks like a fine craft for fishing out of, the hand rails around the bow and sides are a nice feature as well.
Thanks for sharing with us and have fun with it :fing32:.
I'd say a lot of it eminated from this ad campaign, Tim.Ellis, I'm not a boat person so what makes them so "special"? Looks like it'd be pretty shallow draft if nothing else. Glad you got the boat you wanted and can't wait to see the Mahogany work!
Thanks Mike, appreciate the advice :fing32:Nice looking boat Ellis, cleaned up really nice! The Tohatsu is a good reliable engine, just keep it well oiled and use a good 10 micron fuel water separator in the fuel line. Have fun!
Thanks, much appreciated. Wow, a 1969? Have any pics you could share? I would really like to take mine to my place in Maine someday. It's on a good sized lake. Big enough to be able to stretch it's legs a bit, for sure. How long have you owned yours?I too own a Boston Whaler 13' "Super Sport" - a 1969. We use it for bass fishing the lakes in the Adirondack Mountains. You simple cannot beat this boat for stability, roominess and general fish-ability. Good luck with yours.
Thanks, my man. I got pretty lucky on this one :fing32:Great Whaler there, Ellis! I too have always wanted one of those, just a real dream! Ok, save some for seed.
Ellis, this is the set up I have on my boat, best out there IMHO.Thanks Mike, appreciate the advice :fing32:
A 1969 looks pretty much like a '79, or an '89....Thanks, much appreciated. Wow, a 1969? Have any pics you could share? I would really like to take mine to my place in Maine someday.

Gotcha. Me and my youngest have taken it out several times. This past Monday we started to see numbers of Snappers and Blue Claws. Still a lot of smalls though. The boats has run great :fing32:A 1969 looks pretty much like a '79, or an '89....
I've owned it for just about a year.
