Wow sounds interesting. Guess im out of the loop. I hadnt heard anything about this. As a former employee of Lund I am a die hard Lund fan. It is the only boat brand I will ever own. Gotta support my friends at lund that still work there (when I can afford to buy new frown.gif )! Cant wait to see one in person. It sounds cool and I will keep my eye on them. Im sure it will be a nice boat. I Just wish they would get a bit more clever with the name rather then calling it Tyee.

I wonder about the price point? Triton boats are priced a bit lower than Rangers, so will this boat be a little cheaper than the reata? I was hoping to be purchacing an 1850 reata this fall, but I might have to wait and see what this lund is all about. One last tidbit, Triton is also coming out with a boat to compete with the reata '50 series. Supposed to be out next year.

If it's anything like cars, I would not buy the Lund first year.

I would second that, since it has taken them this long to come out with it. If i remember correctly, they were going to bring it out at the Northwest Sportsshow

Good call fellas. It seems that the first year anything gets put out it is nothing but trouble.

No. There was speculation due to the press release that it was going to be there "in the flesh", but Lund never stated that at all.....people read into it too much. It was just the literature and ordering information.

Real pictures this morning, not CAD drawings anymore. Both the 186 Fisherman GL and 186 Tyee GL. WOW! For those who are scared of buying first year out, it took so long because we had to make sure it was right. No need to rush something and fall short of our own expectations. That means it had to look and perform perfectly. We're there now and you'll all be able to see within a week or so. Dealers have to see it first, next week in Nashville. So the mystery will be released. Stay tuned and stay patient. I know I'd sure like to be testing it today with everyone else but other duties call. Later. KJK

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
