1982 Lund Pro Rebel ($2900)

14 posts in this topic

The Office of Budget and Management (wife) approved the purchase of a new fishing boat, so selling the old one.

PRICE: $2900 b/o

THE GOOD:

*1982 Lund Pro Rebel, 16 ft, 3 chairs, lockable rod locker, live well, bilge pump, running lights, lots of bow storage, rod holders, anchor mate crank and anchor. All functional. Just replaced the floor and rear pedestal this month.

*50hp Merc, elec start, tilt/trim, tiller (seals replaced before 2006 season; new ignition switch in 2005 because I snapped an old key off; has been mechanically reliable and trolls down very nicely; I drain out the lower unit fluid every fall.)

* EZ Loader trailer (roller). Bearings replaced before 2006 season.

* 40pd minnkota bow mount elec trolling motor. (Brand new/ never used. Swapped out from new boat) Two 3-prong plug ins for bow mounted trolling motor.

* 36pd minnkota transom mount trolling motor, 2 years old. Brass posts in transom for easy connection wired to bow stored battery.

* Lowrance X-71 depth finder. Has a flasher mode and will give you the battery pack that allows use for ice fishing.

Comes with 3 batterys - one rear, two under bow - along with a dual battery charger for easy recharging.

* custom cover, marker holder and 3 markers will stay with the boat, along with a minnow bucket, landing net, extra prop, fire extinguisher and landing line.

THE BAD:

*Paint job isn't terrible, but definitely shows the boat's age

*the switch for the running lights needs replaced. The switch came off in the "on" position, so the lights come on when light poles are inserted, so never bothered me.

* A bulb on the trailer needs to be replaced, which I will try to do before I sell it.

* The trailer hitches securely to the ball (1 7/8), but became finicky at the end of last season. If it does not come down directly over the ball, the internal clasp will not slip past the ball. It's an annoyance at this point that will need to be fixed, but I am not likely to have time to do it.

* trailer shows surface rust.

I am an Army Reservist mobilized for one-year to Ft. McCoy, WI. Fortunately, I make it home to St. Cloud most weekends. Won't make it home this weekend, but will be home on leave 16-18 next week. Will snap some pictures at that time.

Tried to provide a lot of detail so folks can decide if they are truly interested. If you are call me on my cell at 320.493.2207.

Despite its age, this boat has been very reliable for me. I have owned it for 6 years. It's ready to go. All you need is your tackle, bait and poles.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
