Lund Mr.Pike Questions

6 posts in this topic

I just started looking (casually) at used boats. I'm looking at a 2007 Mr.Pike and would like to get some feedback from guys that run newer Lunds or those that have been in them. The motor is a 115 4 stroke Mercury.

Pros/Cons??

Thanks Guys!

Just got done fishing out of one, probably 20 minutes ago. It is a 2005 17 footer with the 115 Merc 4S. Great boat, lots of room. I have a 1900 Pro-V IFS. With the single console in the 17 ft Mr. Pike, it almost seems like there is more room to move around in.

My buddy has had the boat since 06 and loves it. Does well in big water and small. Can't go wrong.

In my opinion, the 17 or 18 foot Mr Pikes are the best boats for most fishing applications. You can fish bass easily out of them, but you don't have to be affraid of taking it on big water either. If I were you I would pick it up before someone else snatches it out from under you. You will not regret it one bit. Great boat.

The 17' Mr. Pike is very simular to my 17' Explorer and they are both very nice fishable boats. Take on good sized lakes but can be put in almost any small lake.

The pike has a few more bells and whisltes and I like the councel and throttle control set up better than my Explorer. Plus the center rod storage is awesome to have.

The 115 Yamaha 4 stroke I have has been great on gas and I can get 45 mph out of it. Trolls down great and no stink or noise to deal with.

I would however look into a 18" with a 130 if you can get a good price on a non current.

Crystal Pierze will be having some very good bvoat prices now with stores closing so go check the Chrestliners out and you may like the new lay outs.

Oh I would also go dual councel if you run 2 a lot. Your wife or girlfriend will surely be glad you did.

I abosolutely fell in love with the Mr. Pike when I was boat shopping this time last year. It has everything for fishing, the center rod storage, the recessed console area, the livewells are great, it has the same design hull as the ProV. The only difference between the boat you are looking at and the same model in the tournanment pro v is thickness of aluminum on certain locations on the hull, and interior bells and whistles. I ended up finding a deal I could not pass up on a lund prov 1800 and I do not have one bad thing to say about it. If I did not find that boat I would be sitting in a Mr Pike for sure.

Good Luck.

Have an 01' 17 Mr. Pike with a 130hp Yamaha 2S. Its a great boat super wide and super stable. The handling is great, you can take WOT turns whith the wheel at full lock (Motor tilted down)and it hugs the water no problems. Lund has a great hull design. The 01' has open sides now Lund went with thick closed sides on the Mr. Pikes which rob space, so I would lean to the Explorer 17 for that reason. Can't go wrong with a Lund IMO.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
