    sold / closed 2019 Starcraft STX 2050

    My 2019 boat is up for sale and this one is LOADED! I love the white motor, not only does it look sweet, but its also SUPER easy to keep clean, I don’t know why they don’t just make all motors white… This one had a Bimini and full enclosure, super nice! The electronics are tip top, super clean sonar readings, the active imaging side scan and downscan is money. This boat is my first with the 15hp fuel injected Mercury Kicker. It starts on a dime and its nice to know you have that 12amp alternator working for you any time its running. Myself and boat rigging expert Vic Vatalaro rigged this boat front to back to perfection. Warrantees on the boat and the motors are transferable. Here is what’s included at a great price…. $58,500 2019 Starcraft STX 2050 2019 225hp Mercury FourStroke (white) Mercury Smart Craft gauge 19 Mercury Tempest prop 15hp Mercury Pro Kicker fuel injected, helm controls, tie bar steering Bimini Cover with side curtains and full enclosure Transom Saver Custom Trailmaster painted steel trailer (black) 4 seats, 2 front seats with beefy Springfield suspension pedestals MinnKota 112# Terrova w/ I-Pilot – 72″ shaft and Cisco Stabilizer wired with 60amp breaker On Board MinnKota 3 bank charger for trolling motor batteries 3 Die Hard Advanced Gold batteries 1 Odyssey Extreme AGM cranking battery with Master power switch Lowrance HDS-12 Live at the console on a Cisco mount Lowrance HDS-9 Live flush mounted on the dash Lowrance HDS-9 Live on Cisco mounted that can be switched between the transom and the bow All units networked with NMEA 2000, ethernet, and point 1 antenna, and wired direct to the battery with 30amp breaker (ensures super clean electronic readings) Airmar TM-150 transducer (super clean sonar readings / nice upgrade) Active Imaging 3 and 1 transducer Lowrance Link-8 DSC VHF Fixed Mount Marine Radio w/antenna AM/FM radio Giant 36 gallon lighted-aerated-recirculating-and-timed live well in the back Baitwell in the front Bert’s tracks on the bow (upgrade) and stern Ratchet-on Dowco Cover Wash down pump and hose in the rear Call or text Ryan at 440-666-3265 pics here: http://ryanbuddie.com/2019-starcraft-stx-2050-sale/
  4. I’ve got 200 rod and reel combos for the Cleveland Boat Show. The first 100 kids to come see me at the Kids Fishing Seminar this Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 will walk away with one... Big thanks to the NPAA and Future Anglers Foundation for making this possible. Spread the work and help me get kids to put down the iPads, pick up a fishing rod, and build the future of our sport. I'll be teaching kids the go to tactics I used to fish from shore and get hooked on fishing as a kid. Parents will learn how to take their kids fishing and have success!
  5. Hey folks, if you are interested in a great all day Lake Erie walleye fishing seminar, check this one out on February 3rd. Myself, Scott Geitgey, Nicholas Zart, Gary Zart, and Mike Knippenberg putting on the 7th annual Walleye Wisdom Seminar for St. Jude Children's hospital hosted by Vic's Sports Center. We talk about all sorts of topics ranging from electronics use and interpretation, trolling tactics, night fishing, and seasonal migration patterns. There is a HUGE raffle with donations from various sponsors, and all proceeds go to the kids at St. Jude Children's hospital. Last year we raised over $10,000 dollars. Signups are at the Vic's Sports Center page at the link below.... http://vicsboats.com/walleye-wisdom-seminar-2018/ Hope to see you there! Ryan Buddie

  7. National Walleye Tour Erie Recap... Hey all, here is a detailed recap of my 2nd place finish on the Lake Erie NWT, enjoy.... http://ryanbuddie.com/nwt-lake-erie-2nd-place-recap/ -RB
  8. I do use my sidescan to locate walleyes in open water. I pretty much always have it up no matter where I am fishing. Its amazing what you find and learn about the bottom of the lake. Now it doesn't work at speeds much about 5-6mph for searching like your sonar does. Sidescan really does a good job of showing what the bottom is and seeing fish snug up to the bottom. Now, for deeper NY water, I personally would still have it up displayed, but I wouldn't rate it as a 'won't leave home without it'. Shallower water less than 35' structure fishing or in rivers, a definitely 'won't leave home without it.' The first screen shot shows a bottom transition with a bunch of fish on the transition snug to the bottom. The second screen shot shows what suspended fish look like out off to the side. You wouldn't have seen these on your 2d sonar. Both of these shots were from Erie. Hope this helps!
