      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 .

yamaha 155 4 stroke

Recommended Posts

Guest

Looking at buying a 1800 lund fisherman with a yamaha 115 4 storke on it. I have heard from a couple of people that a 115 might not be enough motor. I would think it would push it around the lake, what do you guys think? And while we are on the topic of boats would you recomend the fisherman or should a guy look at the pro-v 1800 or tyee 1850. Have a older 16 ft Mr. Pike right now and would like something a little bigger with a windsheild. I am tired of getting wet.

I bought an 1800 Fisherman w/ a Suzuki 140 4S and am very happy with both. Dry ride, the motor whispers and hit around 45 GPS at 5000 rpm. I wouldn't go less than a 135/140 hp.

Not sure what the fisherman weighs but I have an Alumacaft TPro 175 with a tiller Yamaha 90 4-stroke and it goes about 40 at 6000 RPM. Would think th etwo boats would be fairly similar in performance.

Scott,

I beleive that the 1800 is rated for a 175 h.p. I would never chose a motor that would be less than 80% of the max h.p.
Using this formula a 115 would not be enough motor. Either step up in horses or step down in boat size, I'm sure that you will end up much happier with your purchase

AWW Heck, just slap a Mercury OptiMax 250XS on there, who needs them ratings anyways.

Just Kidding
I think a 150 horse OptiMax, FICHT or HPDI VMax would be awesome on that boat.

I have a 2003 Crestliner Sportfish 1850. It has a Yamaha 115hp 4 stroke on it with a mid range prop. It will run 40mph at about 5800 rpm. Weigh your options on the need for speed vs more boat options to get the price and comfort your looking for.

Go for the larger engine, I've been in a 1700 Fisherman with a 115 Yamaha and sure, it would plane out, and sure, I'll do around 40. However, with just two guys, albeit two guys that are 6'3" and 250 or so, it felt kind of doggy to me.

Get into the hot summer days with friends or family to do a little sking or whatever and I'd guess you'd wish you had more engine behind ya. I've heard a lot more people wish they had more HP than the other way around....

    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
    • Drumming at night.  Did you go after them with you burlap bag and flashlight? 
    • The more i research there seems to be a consensus that there is not a reasonably priced inline reel on the market worth the price tag.  Along those lines i dont recall too many of the guys making a living in the industry using them, even though a few promote them.  Think mr genz, he has his name on an inline but i dont recall any youtube footage of him using one.  
    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
