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.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
