Crestliner give us boat owners a very easy boat to rig. With any luck at all this article will help you with some of the decisions, tips and a couple tricks. The first thing I do is get in the boat and fish. Sit at the wheel, fish out of the bow, cast cranks, rig, jig and generally move around.

Call in sick, turn your phone off and go Fish!

Crestliner 1850 Fishhawk

After having my boat on the water for over a month, I have decided it is one of the better boats I have owned. It is a Crestliner 1850 Fishhawk with a 150 Mercury Verado, lowrance HDS 10 and a Minnkota 101 I-Pilot.


We have had a great Spring bite and the fish have been hungry.

While the ice is still good, it is time for us to start thinking about open water, spring fishing is only a few months away. This weekend I will be speaking about open water trophy trout from the shore or a boat.
