Mercury’s Steve Miller, had a unique experience at the Mercury/Lund NFL 5th Quarter Charity tournament in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. This 150 FourStroke is custom rigged to the transom of a 38’ Viking convertible for charter salmon and trout fishing on Lake Michigan.  The captain runs the boat with its main diesel power out to the fishing grounds, then shuts down and trolls with the 150 FourStroke. Steve tells us “The fishing experience is so much better because you’re fishing in virtual silence. You can barely hear the 150 FourStroke. No rumbling giant diesels shaking the boat or diesel exhaust fumes rolling back into the fishing area in the boat.”
