In Topic: Rigging Up Your Canoe For Fishing

Today, 05:40 AM

Very true.  Any kind of motorized boat needs a license.  As well as being extra weight I have found the outriggers are a bit of drawback on slender rivers.  I mostly use it for fishing in my back yard on Nipissing.

I've never used those pontoon things but I can see how they could help but I really only use the canoe when it's portage trip and just more to carry. 

 

I personally always liked a canoe with the tri keel lines because I found them to be very stable compared to everything else not that I have ever really had a problem.

 

And don't forget if you run a trolling motor like I do so I don't have to paddle you are required to have your boaters card on you.

Thanks, BRMZ.  In another forum it was pointed out that the safety equipment that I list as legally required is actually more than is legally required.  I think it never hurts to have more safety equipment than less.  Here are the legal requirements:

1.One (1) lifejacket or PFD foreach person on board

If boat is over 6 m

4.One (1) watertight flashlight
5.Six (6) flares of Type A, B, C or D, only two (2) can be Type D.(See Note 2)
