First Boat: Lund Angler 1700 w/ Yamaha 115 Four Stroke

8 posts in this topic

Well after a long time of lurking in this forum I finally decided to register. The information on this forum has been excellent and help me to decide on the purchase of a new boat (my first) which will be ready for pick up in two weeks.

The boat details: 2003 Lund 1700 Angler SS with 2003 Yamaha Four-Stroke 115 HP motor. I purchased this boat at Crystal-Pierz Marine in St. Cloud and got all the bells and whistles with this one including: Galvanized Trailer, Pro-Ride/Air-Ride Seats, Bow mounted 55lb Minnkota trolling motor, Custom Cover, Deep Cycle Battery, On-board charger, Raytheon 365 Locator, Sony AM/FM CD Player, Hustler Prop. The boat was originally packaged with a 90 HP 2-stroke yamaha and I am very happy that I upgraded to the F115.

I am really looking forward to getting out for the boats maiden voyage. I purchased a fishing liscense for my wife this year and purchasing the boat will give us the opportunity to spend a little bit more time together on the weekends as I fish about 40 weekends out of the year. My father is also very enthusiatic about the purchase as we have fished out of his Lund Rebel 16 for the past 15 years, and while he will not be discarding his boat, this boat will give us the opportunity to fish waters and conditions not suited for the rebel.

Can't wait...

Awesome! Picked up a new Lund Mr. Pike 17 a couple years ago with a 125 two stroke merc. Absolutely love it. Getting the itch this spring to upgrade to the ProV with a 115 four stroke. Just not sure yet.

Good Fishing!

As a forethought, I thought I would pose this question before I pick up the boat.

Is there anything outside of reading all the manufacturers documentation that I should consider before taking the boat out for its maiden voyage?

Also, I just thought I would make mention to the pricing I received. My wife and I went in with a Out-The-Door price in mind and we received it after some consideration. We dealt with Woody at Crystal-Pierz and we were very satisfied with the sales service and communication that we recieved from them.

Thanks in advance for any replys! If Scott Steil is out there...I say hello you may remember me from the RS Golf Course.

Take care!

John

    • Great pictures and even better memories.
    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
