Lund is going into fiberglass

Recommended Posts

spankster

Not sure if many of you have yet seen the new Lund 1750 Tyee but it looks alot like a Ranger. I talked with a dealer (Nelson Marine) and apparently Lund is returning to fiberglass to try to grab from the ranger reata market. The boat looks nice. Just wondering what you Lund owners think about it? Makes sense to me as well as if they can build the same quality into their fiberglass as they do into their aluminum, they should sell well. But there are other opinions, I am sure....

I like the look of it and think lund will do a good job with it. When your dealing with lund, you probably get the best for your money. Just my .02$.

Walleye Joe, what kind of boat do you use? I believe you that Lund's are expensive. However, I think the quality and the resale value are worth the cost. I have owned a Tyee 1850, Tyee 1950 and now a Baron Gran Sport. I have always liked the look of the Ranger boat but wanted to buy Minnesotan.....

We have a 1950 Tyee and like it a lot. There are some downfalls to that boat, but all and all it does the job. I do think they could look at some of the ranger storage ideas and improve the Lund a bit. I also have had some problems with the snaps and compartments breaking (the hardware).

i actually have a 2002 lund pro-v SE 2025. with all the bells and whistles. the only reason lund is making the fiberglass is because they are under new ownership from brunswick, which in terms mean we have no control over what they may do next with those beautiful double riveted hulls. DONT'T GET ME WRONG I LOVE MY LUND. i have been in some serious rollers with that thing and felt safer than i would in my own bed. they know how to make a boat. but the new owners are scaring me with the fiberglass.

I think it brings another nice division to an already successful boat manufacturer. It's part of the signs of the times.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller?

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.
