New to us boat.

Recommended Posts

My dad, my brother and i just split this 1989 seaswirl. Very clean for its age, has a 90hp evinrude on it that runs great. Also came with a REALLY nice lowrance elite 7ti depth finder. Cant wait to get some fish blood on her. Fyi its just over 17ft long.

You're guaranteed two happy days. The day you buy it and the day you sell it. Enjoy the days in between.

Great looking boat!!!  You guy's will have a blast fishing out there.

I would suggest a transom saver for the motor though.

Zeek , bird island , north gap , round water intake all by breakwall on Erie always hot for smallmouth. 1/8 ounce jig heads and 3” black n white Gulp minnows jigged ever so lightly. Baitstore in Erie basin marina opens at 6 am for crawfish ( aka sheephead crack bait ). We’ll be out there tomorrow. Hoping for an eye or two too 

congrats on the new boat !

Lol.. I have always heard that.. I bought my boat well used 3 years ago and have enjoyed at least 150 days on it.. with zero problems.. where is that wood to knock on...

Hopefully Gen's luck is as good as mine when it comes to boats..;)

I had a boat prior to this, a 89 bayliner i bought for $100, put spark plugs and a new impeller and housing in it and had 4 years of fishing and tubing in it. Sold it for $700. I cant wait to get out on erie with it and put some eyes in the cooler.

Put a new radio and speakers in the boat yesterday. And my dad had this incredibly low hour 9.9hp yammie sittin in his basement that was on the 14ft seanymph that i sold today. Now its our kicker motor. Need to figure out a place for a auxiliary gas tank for it and get a connecting rod to the main motor.

I have 4 line counter rods setup, my dad has 2, the boat came with a lowrance elite 7ti so we are set for that. I have a sh$t ton of dipsys, jet divers, other stuff i picked up in the past to get down deep. Dont know if its gonna get riggers... have a ton of worm harnesses, stick baits. Ordering a pair of double rod holders soon, that will give us the ability to troll 8 rods.

You will never have enough!

Just don't get plastic rod holders like Scotty's. They work but will not take abuse or cold.

Also consider having extra rod holders in case you have to move things around. I like to run a 9 rod spread and have 16 total rod holders. 4 towards the bow and 12 in the back. I've tried a bunch of different brands, cannon dual axis are my fav
