Here is my top ten reasons for fishing out of a Crestliner "Fishhawk" 
1. Boat control, This boat is easy

 to hold still in 20 mph winds. 
2. 8' wide beam, gives my clients and I plenty of room to fish.
3. Storage, it's loaded, as a guide I bring a lot of tackle in the boat.
4.Crestliner uses the most advanced, continuous
seam welding process for unmatched strength and
durability. No rivets to work loose and no weak,
stitch welded seams to fail, only the best built
modified-V hull in the industry.
5. Four-X-Hull design increases the angle of our
deep-V-hull from stern to bow, resulting in a boat
that is quick to plane, delivers superior stability and
a dry, comfortable ride.
6. The layout of an 1850 fishes like a larger boat, but it fits very well in my garage.
7. The front and rear decks each fish 2 people comfortable.
8. The Crestliner company is a family boat company, they treat their customers like family. 
9. It comes with a lifetime non declining warranty. The only one in the industry.
10. Pair it with a 150 Mercury Verado and it is a great running boat with excellent fuel economy.

Spring fishing, summer fishing, guided fishing trips on lake granby, Lake Granby, Lake trout

  As a fishing guide I get to fish more then anyone I know. On hot bites I get to net a lot of fish, slap high fives and listen to people giggle with excitement when they get a big fish on.


 I generally get my Crestliner ready in April for ice off in May.

Casting for Kokanee


The five mile run across Lake Granby from the Stillwater boat ramp up into Columbine bay takes your breath away.  The steep walls of the pseudo-fjord dive deep into the water.  Moose and Elk occasionally swim the channel.

spring fishing

In the early 70's my cousin introduced me to fishing. He would take me to private ponds and we would catch Bluegills, Crappies, and Bass with a bobber and Flea Flies. He taught me about varying the depth to find the fish, and to keep the jig out of the weeds.

Spring Fishing

It's hard to believe that this time last year I was able to be on my Crestliner fishing on Lake Granby. This year spring fishing has been delayed because of the weather and all of the snow the mountains have gotten from the last two storms.
