Fishmaster 196 has a 100" beam, also not only is the Fusion narrow at 92 but the side panels are also thick so your available floorspace is really small. My suggestion is go to the boat shows and crawl around in them , pick the few you really like then take those for a test run.
I just picked up my rig last year, I was looking hard for 3 years, and made an unconventional choice but it turned out great for me. If you want a big water boat take a look at Angler Qwest. I thought i would never be caught dead in a tritoon but these boats are built different. Worth a look and the usable floorspace in a 22 footer like mine is amazing

Walleye2487! Are starweld a narrow boat are they wide?

Lakereyes The point I was trying to make, is you don't need a Lund to catch walleye. Buy the boat you like, an can afford. I think you will be happy with the starweld. I recommend the high transom boat. I bought mine at Augres Marine.

Walleye2487! I never said I wanted to spend a pile of money I just don’t want to deal with used and repairs within the first few months /year . A new boat at least has warranty

Lakereyes You don't need to spend a pile of money, an have 300-400hp to catch walleye. My neighbor has a 1977 starcraft with a 70hp evinrude. That boat has caught a ton of saginaw bay walleye.

man164 I would have no problem buying another Starweld. I currently have a 18 Pro. This boat is so much more boat than my Alumacraft Competitor 165 was….

I fish Lake Erie almost exclusively and really like the high sides and splash well of the Starweld.

I am in the process of upgrading to another boat…..it will not be a boat brand popular on this site but I am going to buy what fits my situation and that is what I would recommend you do as well.

Lakereyes I like the high transom of the starweld on lake huron. Lund builds a good boat, not sure if it's worth the extra money.
