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

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
