I spent my youth on Lake of the Woods and holidays on Thunder Bay--- miss the Sleeping Giant and the  bed rock of the shield. Beautiful place you have there.

I see aluminum boats at the scrap yard frequently, likely half a dozen there on Saturday and some could be floated with a bit of seam sealer,,maybe some reinforcement of the stern. They may not be pretty but $100 for a 14' skiff. I have a Honda 4 stroke on a 17' bowrider which uses half the fuel my other 2 strokes burnt. I use a hammered brass spinner and a chunk of worm. That will catch everything from pickerel, lake trout, rocks, trees, old skidoos...  Don't go cheap on fishing line,,everything else is play within your budget. My favourite feature on my boat other than the whisper quiet 4 stroke is my cavitation mounted Minnkota.

OK I'll bite, how do you get that trolling motor down in the water. Do you flip the bracket over when you use it?

When the motor is trimmed down the trolling motor is fully submerged. When I am using the 4 stroke the trolling motor is above the water as it is mounted on the cavitation plate. You never have to touch trolling motor. The power switch for trolling motor resembles a dimmer switch...on/off  forward/reverse fast/slow  I located that switch near steering wheel.

I use heavy line as well. Simply not into seeing little children, gulls, herons etc. tangled up in 6lb. test that washes up on shore because some "sport" figures he can land a 20lb. pike that way. Sorry, my rant for the day. Grew up in an aluminum skiff jigging for walleye off Scotties Island on Lake of the Woods, minnows or worms on a June Bug spinner.
