Lund 1625 classic ss

4 posts in this topic

I have a 1625 with a 40hp merc 4 stroke and a 12 pitch prop. The boat tops out at 28-29 mph at 6000rpm with 2 adults gas, gear and a full livewell. Do I have the right prop? Anyone else have this boat and motor?

Just to compare, I have a 1660 Classic with a 50-4 stroke. With two in the boat max speed at 5800 rpm's is 33.5. Bigger motor and a little bigger boat. I had a 12 pitch prop but they changed it to another.

I'd say you are pushing your max RPM's right to the limit.

If your happy with the hole shot fully loaded it sounds about right but be carefull with the those RPM's you wouldn't want to go any higher IMO.

On the 50 4-stroke I have, the max rpm's that Mercury wants it to run is 6000. They prefer 5,850.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
