Lund's are great boats. We had been out a couple times in Big Crappies Lund and had good trips both times. When it came time for us to trade boats, I started doing my homework. I found that the walleye guys run this style boat alot on the great lakes up there. I was able to get alot of good information off www.walleyecentral.com
It is their version of our fishing forum. We decided to go with a G3 Angler V172F. This was mainly because of layout differences. Both are quality boats, but I was wanting a larger rod box and dual live wells.
We also went with the full windshield and have not regretted that decision. It kind of cuts down on movement around the boat, but is worth it on runs across the lake in choppy water or cool weather.
As far as wind, it blows more that a bass boat. It doesn't however blow nearly as much as the Tracker 165 mod V we had before this boat. My ipilot holds it good. Even better in wind around 10-15 mph that on dead calm.
My 90hp Yamaha has plenty of power. I can run 30 mph on the GPS with me and my wife, full 30 gallons of gas, and both livewells full of water, plus all of our gear. It is rated for a 115, but the 90 pushes it just fine. Not to mention that it can go forever on that tank of gas. If you was wanting to pull a skier or something, you might want to max out the motor.
The 4 main manufactures that I saw on walleye central were: Lund, G3, Crestliner, and Alumacraft. There are others, but these were the ones it seemed that had the most consistent good reviews. Lund boats had the most reviews, mostly good. They are excellent boat, just not with the layout we wanted.
I hope this helps you.
