Put me on a boat?


I have 20k to spend and looking for a bay boat to fish Cocodrie and Grand Isle. Can the OT find the perfect boat?

Thanks

Has anyone fished out of a Proline Bayboat like the one offered? 22 ft with 150. Do you think it has trim tabs because it is underpowered?

How often will you fish?

EDIT: Take how often you think you fish, and divide by 5 to get real answer.

I'm tired too. Only found three, but I look almost everyday just for shits and the market has been tight on used boats in the $10-20K range

I have looked at LA Sportsman and found a decent amount. That is, if meauxjeaux ever sorts through all of the fake dog classifieds. I like Pathfinder and Champion for bay boats. Used Skeeters are nice too. $20k can get you into a pretty nice 3 or 4 year old boat


My .02, get a broken Yellowfin. Leave it in your yard and wait for the ladies to come crawlin in

Which is more important to you: (1) making it to the islands in June on a windy day safe and dry or (2) fishing skinny water in the marsh for reds.
