I had to do a blog post on Stephen Dean’s G3 catches this past season. Stephen had purchased the G3 172SF equipped with a Yamaha 115, 4-stroke and loaded with electronics which we used to shoot the Canadian Sportfishing TV series in 2015.
Glad to see the boat has been put to “fish-work” and not sitting in a driveway or in a garage.
Whether you’re planning on downrigging or flat-line trolling, it handles wavy conditions well and catches fish!
For walleye trolling even with the 115 Yamaha, 4-stroke outboard you can troll right down to around 2 mph, or if you use the electric for trolling on calm days, you can troll even slower.
And for those that like to drift or cast using the electric, it has comfortable bow and rear casting platforms with pedal seat mounts. I’m sure Stephen knows it’s the ideal fishing-machine!
