I'm not sure when the last year of the Mr. Pike, but wasn't the Mr. Pike about midway between the Explorer and the Pro V?

I believe it was 2007 for the last year of production on the Mr. Pike series boats. They were laid out perfect for fishing and I don't understand why they weren't more popular. The closest thing to them now is the Predator series boats with the console option. They are pretty close. I was happy to see the Predator and Pro Guide lines come out as they are pretty awesome boats. I prefer tiller boats, and the Pro Guide has what I need in a boat. Until I can afford one though, I will run my 14' footer.

I believe it was 2007 for the last year of 17 and 18 foot Mr Pike. You're right, there is nothing quite like that now. The Explorers have the IPS2 hull and a decent HP rating, but do not have the closed gunnels. There is an 18 foot Pro-V, but I assume this is a little higher price point.

Who really knows. Why did they take away the Fisherman and then bring it back? I would guess the Mr Pike name will return at some point.

From what I’ve seen at boat shows and from talking to sells men. There is a lot more money to be made in selling the bigger boat. So if the sells men don’t want to show them they are not going to sell them.

As you can see from some of the posts here, the only way to get a good boat in the 16-17foot class is to redo an older boat. I was looking for a new boat last year. I saw nothing better then my 1983 class 16’ Lund Pro Angler. So I’ll keep using it.

Funny, I have a 81 Mr. Pike, I re-did it over 10 years ago, needs another overhaul now after looking at ideas and other projects on this site. Love it though

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
    •   Too late. It's now undergoing the digestive process as I type   This is first rabbit dinner I've had since my early 20's and I'm going to be 57 this year. I shot them while grouse hunting this fall and winter but haven't specifically targeted them since I was much younger. I've never heard of anyone really going after them anymore
