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.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
