Does anyone have a Lund 1800 fisherman with a Honda 130?

5 posts in this topic

I have this boat and motor setup and I wrecked my prop on Rainy. (Yep it was one of those nice rocks). I had a mer/marine stainless vengeance 16p prop. and i am curious what anybody with this setup has for a prop on theirs. The holeshot with this was ok not great and the Topend was 40 mph on a good day. I would like to know likes and dislikes and your holeshot and topend speed with the prop anyone has on their 130 mounted on a 1800 fisherman Thank You

Thanks bigtimeelectric. That was my worse nightmare thought when it happened. That my lower unit was trashed, but I did tear it apart and replace all the seals I got lucky. I see your address is ottertail lake You lucky (B) I practically grew up on the channel from Walker to Ottertail and am headed there in a couple weeks to fish (after I hopefully find a prop that will suit me) thanks for the reply tho. maybe I'll see you fishin' out there I'll be the one going from 1mph -15mph in 30 seconds and 15 to 40 in 5 seconds

I have a 1800 but not a honda but Im curious about the fuel useage you get I had a 125 Merc with a alum 19 pitch and with that I had to have 4fow under me to get up or I would take out a prop beleive me two props later I traded for a 150 Merc with a 21 pitch ss I now get out in the length of the boat and 3ft works just fine 52 top end and best of all I use less fuel by a little, I also have a four stroke 15 Merc on for a kicker love that thing for a troller.

hawghunter I would say that 3 fow is about the shallowest I would try but I'm not even close to getting my boat up as fast as you I really wouldn't say I have the stern drop - bow rise that I have to wait for 4 feet tho'.Just realized yesterday that I do have a lower unit problem now (stuck in gear) *#%@& it anyway

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
