Best Aluminum Fishing Boat For Salmon In The Great Lakes
The legendary 2275 Lund Baron is Lund's flagship fishing boat model. With the more storage, seating, and fishing features, the Baron is perfect for large lakes or rough waters. It also has rod storage for rods up to 9 feet long, which is very rare in boats under 23 feet long. The boat is 22'9" long with a 102" beam, so it is very stable in the water. It is powered by a 300 Mercury Four Stroke which is extremely quite, and powerful enough to get this boat on plane with 6 adults averaging 200 pounds with no issues.
I like the boat and the power it has for navigating choppy seas on Lake Michigan, and the Bay of Green Bay. When trolling it is powered by a 15hp Mercury Pro Kicker. It trolls very well for an aluminum boat, and can still navigate shallow areas with the trolling motor when casting. By utilizing the bow mount trolling motor and kicker motor, boat control is very simple. The boat is fully rigged with Cannon Rod Holders, Cannon Mag 10 Down Riggers, Humminbird Electronics, Fishhawk Speed and Temp unit, and Rod trees made by Great Lakes Planers.
When I started fishing tournaments, I joined the FLW walleye series as a co-angler. It was a great way to learn from other fisherman in the industry. For each tournament, I was paired up with a different angler which provided me with the chance to fish out of many types of boats. I fished out of almost every type of boat on the market for Walleye in the Midwest. While they all have their own benefits, I found that the Lund Baron works best for the multiple types of fishing that I do with customers. It has a ton of room in the back for trolling, but still has the maneuverability to jig for walleye, or cruise the shorelines in search for Smallmouth Bass. I purchase my boats from Power Sports of Abrams. I highly recommend them if you are thinking about purchasing a Lund Boat.
