Crestliner 1850 sportfish

Question

DuckStupid

I'm in the market for a new boat, I'm finally upgrading my (old) 14 ft mirrocraft with the 20 hp johnson and found an 2002 1850 sportfish with a 150 merc xr6 on it that looks like it's in great shape for the money I want to spend on a boat. Any opinions on the boat / motor. good/bad. I want something I can fish, but also want something I can load the family in and go for a little ride. The kids are getting old enough where I want to them to be able to do a little skiing, etc. I realize the sportfish is a bit of a compromise boat, but it sure looks like something I could get used to fishing out of as well...

Any and all comments appreciated.

This is a wonderful boat, I have a 21 footer in the same model. There are very few complaints I could make about it, in fact, nothing substantial to even list here.

I will add, this discussion has taken place a few times before on this forum, so you might search those, there's a lot of opinions.

I use the same boat in a 97. It is a great all purpose boat. I fish tournies with it, Take the family fishin(4 kids), ski/tube all day, whatever. My only complaint is when I have to fill that 43 gallon gas tank!

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
