Lund Rebel 1440V TILLER

4 posts in this topic

Since I got no reply about tracker boats I thought I would look at Lunds. I need a small enough boat that a 15hp 4-stroke will push it because the lake I fish a lot has a 20hp restriction. I want a boat with a live well and a casting deck. Anyone have experience with this boat? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, DanDANthefisherman.

On a boat of that size and caliber,you'd do well to check into Sea Nymph or NorthWood.You'll get all the same options possibly more for less $$$.In '96 I was in the market for that size rig and I looked at them all.I finally decided to go with Sea Nymph.At that time it was laid out better than the Lund,saved about 1,200 too.Take the money you save and buy the biggest outboard your boat will handle or in your case the lake restriction will allow.It really sucks to be under powered in the wind!Been there done that.thats why I sold the Nymph.I went to buy a bigger motor,and came home with a bigger motor attached to abigger boat.**** Salesmen!! Good Luck!

I have a Rebel 1650V Tiller Model with a Mercury 15 horse 4 stroke. I fish small lakes only and like the boat and motor a lot. I did not get electric start and wish I had. A 4 stroke pulls harder and I'm getting weaker. If you are going to fish big lakes buy a larger motor but the 15 is great otherwise.

Thankyou, Buddy and Thankyou, DickUrban.I've heard a lot of good things about Lund through the years. I live in Colorado and I don't think there are any Northwood dealers here,but I will look into Sea Nymph.
Thanks again,
Dan DAN the fisherman

    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a bif summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO.
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
