I got a new Lund 1750 Fisherman last fall, w/115 Merc EFI 4 on it. Can't wait to get it on the water, hoping to get to the river in the next couple of weeks. With the industry in a bit af a slump I think I got a very fair price.

I love my 2000 Lund Rebel 16' and hope it lasts forever! The new boats are much more heavy (I don't need a 50HP on my 16' boat thank you!). I have been looking for a replacement for my Rebel but the new boats are too heavy. I want a light boat for towing purposes (tow behind small truck) with a floor, livewell, some storage and there are not too many options.

I wish I could get a new one every year but I got one last year. A Crestliner 1700 superhawk with a 70lb thrust bowe mounted minnkota, a bowe mounted locator, and a console mounted lowrance 522c Thought about buying a new lowrance for the console and putting the console one on the bowe. But the truck needs replacing more than a year old locator.

I'd settle for a buzz around the lake in your Bass Cat, but some fishing wouldn't bother me, either smile

A bass guy and a cat guy. I guess both those fish are bottom feeders.

I was thinking along the same lines Harvey. Does anyone think that Deitz is going to let someone prepare cut bait ot stink bait in that pretty new boat? smile

Acutally, I bass fish quite a bit. Catfishing has been a fairly recent endeavor for me. I enjoy both!

I plan on buying a boat this summer...I would do it now but the savings needs to be used for a down payment on a home. For all this to come together I need to find a permanent job first. My job is done in May unless I get offered a permanent position, which is probably less than a 50/50 chance.

    • Trumps pulls even in Minnesota.  But hey your vote doesn't matter here.  Not poking fun at Dave as I thought what he said was logic in that the democratic candidate would win hands down.
    • Uh oh, just saw a junco at the ranch under the feeders a couple hours ago. This is serious. First we lose the hummingbirds early, now the juncos are back. It'll be an ugly winter. Get yer wool coats everybody! Wool coats fer sale! 
    • I hear ya , I just eat a Montana elk tag for $880 . I could go back with the rifle but it would be more money and time off from home   
    • That is amazing!! I especially like the dovetails!! And the hand made flasher holder!! That has me seriously thinking... just what i need, another project before winter gets here.  Seriously, that's awesome!
    • Who said anything about victim? We have terrible representation, I am taking responsibility by trying to change it. Sure beats picking some party your parents voted for and blindly sticking with them your whole life. That isn't a poke at you Del, just the way things are.
    • I like them in Spring when the water is still cold. An original in white works well for me, usually fished on 15lb mono. This year I mostly used a Strike King blade minnow as a trailer.
    • Just ask her..... It's because you want more of the Obama policies and more.  It's because she is a woman and you want to show you are not a bigot. It's because Trump will destroy the country and probably the planet.   /sarcasm for the reading impaired...
    • You don't deserve better because they got nominated by voters who chose them instead of one of the other possibilities.  What did you do to get one of the others chosen?   If you just watched TV and went to work and were not involved in the process, then you got what you deserved, as did the rest of the country.   You are not a victim.  No mysterious cabal did this to you.   We are all responsible and that includes you.    Is that so hard to accept?
