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

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
