Tim H.-Student-Casting. I wish I had a boat to offer, but nothing yet. Since I am looking for a boat, should I buy one before this happens I will let you know that it is available.

Schram,

Great idea but I have a few questions:

I Have an 18' Princecraft that isn't set up for trolling and I have absolutely zero Muskie gear but I would like to be a student / novice paired with an experienced trolling angler (or casting angler for that matter).

Questions:

1. Are students / novices expected to bring rods, lures, etc... if they are on an experienced anglers boat?
2. Is it a requirement to have a Canadian license if you are a guest on someone elses boat?
3. Is there a minimum amount a non boater must contribute for fuel?

I asked questions 2. and 3. because I have witnessed boaters getting stiffed for fuel and hearing non boaters whine because they didn't have a Canadian license.

I've always wanted to try Muskie fishing but was reluctant to spend my money on the wrong gear and lures since they are so expensive and there is such a large selection. For a day of learning how to fish for Muskie I would be willing to pay for most of gas (say $100 to $125) for a larger boat and bring an awesome lunch.

i know its not my thread but as far as trolling goes that gas offer is way more then generous but running a big boat across the lake and back can burn some fuel depending on boat/engine-s. as far as gear if your going on an equipped vessel most likely the capt will want to run the gear he catches fish on. having a canadian license opens up the fishing options as most trollers mainly fish canadian water this time of year. i dont think is necessary for casting as i doubt many will be fishing the other side of the border. hope this helps but a fair donation for gas with 3 riders for a rigged trolling boat i would say 40 dollars a man wich is cheap IMO for that kind of oppurtunity. 40 bucks only buys 1 or 2 quality baits nowadays others may have a different opinion
