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

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      Minnetonka there is a guy named John he just picked up 4 2017 wheel houses to add to his rentals I think he has 7 total now. He knows the lake darn well this is probably you best bet for the limited area you are willing to travel. I will pm you his info

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
