New (used) Boat Day!!

Recommended Posts

Lund 1700 Angler SS. 130 hp with a 9.9 kicker. Set up for water skiing, too! 80# thrust motor. Even has a AM/FM Cassette (which I doubt I'll ever use). I have some problems with the gate of my back yard. It is JUUUUST barely wide enough to get the boat in. Unfortunately I need to take it in at an angle due to the proximity of my back neighbor's lawn across the alley. This gives me about 1" to spare against a huge tree.

Congrats on your purchase! Sounds like you may have to move a fence post or two to make entry to the yard easier. Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

By the way, I fished Loch Raven once. Great experience but aren't all those lakes in Md "electric only"?? They were when I lived there. We had to go to tidal water or to Deep Creek to use the "big motor".

Anyway, good luck!!!!

Yes - all three reservoirs are electric only and the boats cannot be used in any other water as they fear zebra muscles. The rental there is only around $35 with two batteries, so I don't mind paying that. There's good fishing there! I took in quite a few 3 or 4 pounders, but haven't caught the big one, yet. 

Without a boat I've been unable to fish the larger waters like Deep Creek and the Susquehanna. I also want to take it up to the Adirondacks and Finger Lakes. Maybe even the Great Lakes on a calm day. 17' is about the minimum I would take on a great lake and it would need to be a pristine day.

That boat looks great!  I can not wait to get the doctor's approval to resume normal duties. Linda and I will be happy to meet up with you and show you where to launch, and where to go to catch some tasty stripers and cats. We will just launch both boats and go run around the Middle River, Back River and Island complex.

Thats a really nice looking rig! I wish you nothing but good luck and safe boating with her.

 I'd recommend opening up that gate so its a easy parking job, and maybe a cover to keep her sweet looking for a long time.

Congrats man, and good luck fishing

I have a cover for it. Looking up how to remove fence posts, now. I think they're anchored with concrete.

I run Erie almost exclusively in a rig very similar to yours (17' Mr. Pike with 135 Honda).  You just have to be smart, watch the weather and know your limitations.  I've been out in some stuff I shouldn't have, but the boat handles it just fine.  I won't launch in anything over 2' waves.

A but the great part about Erie is usually when the lake is throwing 2 footers on the big lake Presque Isle Bay will welcome you with some great smallmouth and walleye and northern pike. Man, I had some good spinnerbaits annihilated by them tooth critters, but they are so much fun to battle. I did not get too upset about the damaged spinnerbaits.
