Lund Boat Covers

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some opinions on what I should do with my cover. I have been told that when I travel I will need to take my bow-mount and the console windshield off in order for the cover to fit properly.
Because I don't want to hassle with doing that I am thinking about altering the cover itself.
I have a concern about adding new seams to the cover and by doing so I will weaken it, making it easier to tear.
1. Should I go thru the hassle and take things off?
2. Should I have it altered?
3. Any recommendations on who could do the altering?

I appreciate any suggestions from my FORUM FRIENDS! Thanks and GOOD FISHING

I would just take the cover off while traveling That is what I do. I don't know why everyone thinks that the boat need to be covered going down the road. The cover flapping around going down the road just weakens the cover. AJ

I would put a quick disconnect mount on the trolling motor. It works great and only takes a couple of minutes to remove or mount the motor.
The windshields also are quickly and easily removed.
Just store them on the floor under the cover.
The cover also will deter those rotten thieves that seem to be everywhere!!

Have a custom cover made. I did not take the Lund cover when I got my boat. I had a custom cover made and it is reinforced in the areas it needs to be, like the windshield, trolling motor and corners. I am very glad I went this route and the price is about the same.ScottS

I just bought a new Lund also and had the same problem. I took my boat to tarps inc. In savage an had them add material to my cover to fit over the trolling motor, windshield, and Kicker. It is warantied so you don't have to worry about it. They also reinforce everything they do. They did a great job on my cover. By brother also had his done about five years ago and he has not had any problems. I would just go ahead and have it done. I payed $115 to have mine done.

    • Sounds like next year you need to get ahold of Jonny P at Red Lake Remote Ice Fishing & Sleeper Rentals @RedLakeRemote. He can get you out there and move ya around! 😉  He may be full this year already then. 
    • I've been visiting Upper Red each year (annual trip) for the past 7 years.  I have had "success" in catching fish....but never really a "great day".  From conversations I have had over the years with other anglers I know that there can be some better days and some phenomenal days on Upper Red....and I realize you can't force a fish to bite. I've spent way more than I know I should have on lures, jigs, etc.  But always wanted to make sure I had anything the fish could ever want. I'm only able to fish Walleye once a year so I don't get a lot of time for practice.   Lets get this out of the way - I fly in from out of state.  I can only bring limited gear, so I am basically confined to a sleeper house.  No tents, machines, etc. to help me be mobile.  And since I am in a sleeper - I am also limited to the time I can come based on safe-ice.  Usually the week between Christmas & New-Years. So - knowing that moving farther from the crowds, being more mobile, moving more often etc. is not an option, are there any tips you can offer to catching more fish from a fish-house?   I use a dead-stick in one hole.  Usually with the usual spoon and a live minnow.  Or sometimes just a plain red hook and minnow. My other rod I jig with a minnow head and one of many jigs, lures, spoons, etc.     Does my jigging need to be constant or jig, pause, jig pause?   I just need some basic tips or guidelines so I can get a few more fish on the line.   I've watched all the Ice-Team and other videos I can possibly find.  I've read everything I can find from Northland as well as everyone else.  Not much out there specifically showing or explaining what to do or how to fish in this kind of situation.  Most are about first-ice and/or they are mobile.   Anything you could suggest would be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to this trip every year....would just like to make it a little better of an experience.   Thanks!

    • And what would there version be?
    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.
