Muskie Fishing -> Muskie Boats and Motors -> Row Trolling for Muskie

Subject: Row Trolling for Muskie

A while ago I was turned on to row trolling for Muskie. I was up for learning any better way to catch the big ones. It really works great but the rowing got old after a while in a boat made for use with a motor. I thought about how much easier it would be in a canoe. But I wouldn't want to try and pull a muskie in a canoe. The muskie would be likely to win that battle and I'd be in the water. So I tried to find a boat actually made for row trolling. There isn't one. Then I read an article written by Patricia Strutz on the same subject and found that most everyone was making due with older boats or boats that are close enough. So I ordered plans for a Rangely Lake Boat from Newfound Woodworks and made my own. I used their hull design which glides across the water but is stable enough to stand up in. I decked out the interior with trolling accessories and I'm as happy as could be.
I've since found that row trolling is not only a great way to catch muskie, but a great sport. So natural, quiet, and a great workout. If you'd like, you can check out my boat at Newfounds site or a I've shown it at expos and it looks like I'm not the only one who's been looking for the perfect row trolling boat!
Thanks and happy hunting.

There are a couple rowtrolling boats being made. I can't think of who, but will look around, and post.

Your boat looks really nice. Congrats.

Here's a post from the past.

I think Heckle's was selling a fiberglass row troller boat.
