Default Upgraded my fishing boat

So I finally sold my 1966 13' Boston Whaler and upgraded to a larger fishing boat. I got a 1991 Tracker Ski N Fish with a 115hp outboard. 17' with livewell, troller, fish finder. Quite a step up from the whaler and loving the extra room!
Old boat.....

I keep fiddling with it changing things around, bunk placement, speedo, throttle motor trim and whatnot and making short trips to the lake to see how things are working. But I think this weekend it's just gonna stay in the driveway and we're gonna take the Smokercraft out instead.

You gonna put down riggers on it and troll lake Michigan?

Pussy. I'm pretty sure my Dad's Smokercraft is only 17' although it is a deeper V and we fish for lakers in Superior. Hell I'm getting down riggers for my 15' shallow V to fish for lakers. I've already had the Starcraft out in 6' rolling swells on Superior on it's second shake down run.

I'll wear the pussy card on this one lol. I wouldn't hesitate to take my 19 footer out on the big lake though, it's a pretty deep boat.

Fiberglass? Then it's technically a Nitro and not a tracker. Just wanted to let you know incase you ever need to look stuff up for it.

Looks like an awesome score! Enjoy it this summer, perfect for all the lakes around you.

Correct it is a Nitro, all fiberglass except for the floor itself.
