Boat: Ranger 520Z Bass Boat
The boat is a 2009 Ranger Z-520 equipped with an Evinrude 250hp E-Tec. I have two Powerpole XL’s on the back to facilitate fishing specific spots as well as making it easier for sight fishing giant bronzebacks and cruising carp. Fishing from a boat also affords the angler the ability to spot fish better and from further away than anglers wading the Bays’ extensive flats. I run a 101-lb thrust trolling motor that can easily handle northern Michigan’s wind and waves, while also being able to cover a lot of water throughout the day. Additionally, I have two side-imaging sonar units to help us find that offshore honey hole! The boat has been meticulously cared for and serviced, helping to ensure a memorable experience.
