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

Recommended Posts

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

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..

      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
