Crappie Gear / Looking at purchasing my first "used" boat
« Last post by CamFisher on Today at 08:45 AM »
I found a boat that I am going to go look at this weekend.  It is a 2004 Triton 163 Sport (aluminum boat).  Has a Honda 50 4 stroke and all original equipment.  The asking price was $6,750...but I responded that I wouldn't pay more than 6,000 for an older aluminum boat.  Condition appears to be good for the year with normal wear.  The seller said he would likely accept that offer.

My question is if $6,000 would be a good or fair price?  I know a boat, like anything, is worth as much as you are willing to pay for it, but I am trying to find a good deal.  (I found previously a 2002 tracker crappie edition for $3,500 but it sold quicker than I could get to it.  I thought that was a deal!)  Does anyone have any opinions about this boat regarding performance, quality or price?  Thanks in advance!!!

I know it always rains when we're up there but looks like more than usual: https://www.google.com/search?sclient=psy-ab&site=&source=hp&q=lake%20mary%20az%20forecast&=&=&oq=&gs_l=&pbx=1

Monsoon season is in full force.  Menrats may come up as well.  It's such a mud pit I may just sleep in the truck.  Possibly not bringing my boat - will make decision on Thursday.

Dave, when are you showing up?  Bringing the camper?  Any of your boys (i.e. designated drivers) going?

Need to plan means - let me know what you all are thinking for trip to Flagstaff vs cooking at camp.

As of now, I'm bringing my boat.  Conversing with menrats to see if he wants to ride along otherwise may have room on my boat.

That is sad, I know Piscolli tried to wade through the BS on minimum pools talking to all sorts of people and never got a straight answer several years ago. The tribe has been suing everyone up stream at no cost to them to get more water but they would rather sell it to the farms down stream than keep a decent pool in the lake for recreation. Amazing thing there is CAP water that can be tapped and used down stream near Florence and leave a pool of safe water in the lake. Need to find an endangered species in the lake and then have the US fish and wildlife service come in and set up some rules.

Their update on June 25, 2018: San Carlos Lake has reached below %1 and is experiencing fish kill. So please plan accordingly and choose an alternative. Seneca Lake and Talkalai Lake are open. If you have any questions please feel free to call San Carlos Game and Fish 928-475- 2343

Was browsing another social media site for more recent pictures and so saddened to see such a major fish kill - really like the entire shoreline of dead fish.    At this point, it's gone.

It sure seemed to happen quickly this year people catching fish in May still and just drop quicker than I expected.

I'm amazed it came back as well as it did as fishing this winter/spring was good and that was 4 years (?) since the last drain I think.

Thanks Tweeder, I will definitely keep that in mind.  We only got some small fry in there.  We were fishing in 20' but 10'-15' down 56' of water only yards away.  We need to spend more time up there and do some graph scouting and marking.
