These squared back canoes are really good for motoring around as they can easily mount a trolling motor of small gas outboard of up to 4 horse power. Canoe fishing really gets kicked up a notch when you add a small electric trolling motor. (We rent rent them for $29/day) Snagged lines?– just reverse until the hook comes free. Trolling in the picture? No problem. Regular tandem canoes can drift across a honey hole but trolling, well that’s a bit more problematic.
Our square stern or square back canoes tend to paddle fairly well when needed, are extra stable and can hold a ¾ of a ton of you and everything you may want to take along.
Besides the obvious advantage for fishing, this boat also fits the bill for small hunting parties packing it in and packing it out.
If you want to go canoe camping with the kids and are lucky enough own or rent a small motor from us, ($6) this boat will get you away from the city blues in a hurry and still allow a portage or two to the next lake if needed. Boater safety certificates are not required when renting these boats and small motors but you do need to pass a brief proficiency quiz.
