      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Difference in Lund types

Recommended Posts

Looking at getting a newer boat - just wondering what the biggest differences are between the Lund Fisherman and the Tyee

Your best bet might be to check the specifications. My guess is that the Tyee is deeper and wider, maybe higher hp and capacity rating, added bells and whistles, etc.

It's mainly bells and whistles... pro-long livewells vs regular aluminum livewells, recirc valves on the livewells, radio, etc.

The new Tyee is glass and the Fisherman is Aluminum.

Basics of the fisherman:

1750 - 17'-6" and 135 max hp.

1850 - 18'-6' and 150 max hp.

Side rod locker storage only.

Some bow storage capacity.

Basics of the Tyee:

Tyee 186 - 18'-6" and 175 max hp.

Side lockers as well as in floor rod storage (11 rods)

Maximized bow storage

Larger rear casting deck space with jump seats folded down.

Other than that and between 15k and 20k depending on options, they will both be fishable big water boats.

Thanks - I have been searching for 2000 to present - Lund tyees since that is what we have now (1983 tyee 5.5) We fish big water so i would like to get a 1950. Just wondering are the fishermans as deep?

I keep seeing fishermans on the lake and they look nice, and maybe sheaper - I guess I don't need all the bells and wistles but I dont want a shallow hull small lake boat.

Check the Lund web site for the specs but if your on big water go as big and deep as you can. The tyee is a great big water boat but the Fisherman is a very nice boat as well. Its all about preference a lot of times. Go look at a few and see what ya think will work best for the way you fish.

The Tyee is the same depth and the Fisherman... using a broad paintbrush, they're almost identical with the exception of fit & finish (tyee's usually have full enclosure packages, bow cushions, etc), & installed accessories / bells & whistles.

The biggest difference that matters to me between the two is the livewells are different...

Also, depending on the year, the Tyee's have the IPS II hull and the fisherman's in the last 2-3 years got that.

Hull wise there is no difference between the 17 and 18 foot TYEEs and the Firsherman. Exact same hull. Fit and finish, big diffference. Also 1750 tyee is rated for larger motor. Was told this was marketing decision. The biggest thing to cosider is that, I don't think there is a 19 foot Fisherman avaiable.

TYEE is a bigger boat i believe. They are Deeper in the freeboard, but have the same set up as a fisherman. The fisherman in the Lund line has been one of the top if not the top selling boats for them. They didnt make it one year, and people were upset, so they brought it back. Its a popular boat in Minnesota for the simple fact that its alot less money then a tyee, and does everything anyone wants.

Thicker hull on the Tyee which I believe directly correlates to the HP ratings being higher on a Tyee. I do believe the Tyee is slightly deeper and wider. As others have said the two are vitually the same boat, besides some of the bells and whistles. Maybe the Fisherman is the standard Chevy and Tyee the Cadillac.

Just went throught the 2008 lund catalog for TYEE and Fisherman(1750 & 1850) both TYEE and Fisherman in these two sizes are IDENTICAL with regards to technical specifications. Hull thickness, length, width, depth Ect. As been said before, the difference in the two boat series is fit and finish. In addition to the HP rating, 175 max vs. 150 on the 1850 and 150 max vs. 135 for the 1750.

I own a 2008 1750 Tyee and 17Fishman is correct. For 2008 and 2009...the Tyee 1750/1850 and the Fisherman 1750/1850 are the EXACT same IPSII hull. As noted above, the Tyee has more/nicer options as standard than the fisherman and I too believe the HP rating difference was more mktg/positioning than anything real technical. There is no 1950 Fisherman option. next one I get is going to be the 1950 Tyee. Knowing what I know now, that would be the ideal boat for me.

    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home.
