re: Issues with Boat hasn't been run in two plus years - BullredsRus
Thanks for all the info here. He is going to drain it and refill some prior to our test drive. I will def check everything out real good on test drive. All the electrical switches, trim tabs, trolling motor, bilge and wash down pumps, lights etc. It is a 250 HP Yamaha with 55 hours. He ...

re: Issues with Boat hasn't been run in two plus years - BullredsRus
A little. But I'm not all that mechanically inclined. My dad is though and he is buying it with me. We'll be on test run together. Also it only has 55 hours on motor and for its age it's really low. ...

Issues with Boat hasn't been run in two plus years - BullredsRus
I'm looking at a boat that the owner just doesn't use. It's been stored (indoors) for over two years. He says he's only used non ethanol gas and prob has close to a full tank sitting in it (60+ gallons). Should this be drained out completely and refilled? Also any other things to look closely at ...

re: Angler Grande Bay 2200 vs. Parker 2300 SE - BullredsRus
I read online that the Parker 2300 SE has a 14 degree dead rise, which seems low to me. They make another model, the 2300 CC I believe and it has a higher dead rise. Totally different boat but what about a 22' twin bee with twin 115's on back? I've never fished out of a cat hull. I hear they...

re: Angler Grande Bay 2200 vs. Parker 2300 SE - BullredsRus
Lots of good info and thanks again. Everyone probably thinks their boat is worth more than it is. I have read very mixed reviews on the angler, but I really do like the set up. But I do think it's older than I want to buy. And I have read pretty much nothing but good on Parkers, but it is at the...

Angler Grande Bay 2200 vs. Parker 2300 SE - BullredsRus
I am looking at used boats in the 20K-30K range. I fish out of Grand Isle almost exclusively. Right now I have an 18 ft wellcraft fisherman that I have outgrown. I know no one boat can do everything, but I can't have two boats so I'm trying my best to find a compromise. Looking for a bayboat in 22-2...

re: Would you take this boat offshore to closer in rigs on a decent day? - BullredsRus
Boat shopping is harder than I thought. Too many options to consider. All good pints here though and thanks again for info. Someone mentioned a cat hull earlier, do they draft significantly less? Good for offshore? I saw one listed in Pensacola. 22 ft. Twin vee with twin yamahas on the back. ...

re: Would you take this boat offshore to closer in rigs on a decent day? - BullredsRus
Thanks everyone, most of my inshore fishing would be out of grand isle. I feel like it would work good on the backside of island, but probably not go up into leeville marsh area with it. I do have a really small boat for that though but it only fits 2 people really. and for summer speck fishing I...

Would you take this boat offshore to closer in rigs on a decent day? - BullredsRus
And a follow up do you think it would be good for bay/inland fishing? It's a 23'clearwater for those that don't want to click on craigslist link. https://gulfport.craigslist.org/boa/6192903964.html I'm early in my search, but looking for something that I can fish for reds and specks with in...

re: Crabbing in grand isle, surf vs. bayside vs. bridgside peir - BullredsRus
We caught 60 crabs from 8:30-1:30 on Sunday in the surf. Had 6 nets and 5 traps. I ran my nets about every 20 min or so, and I would occasionally check my traps and empty them if they had a handful of crabs too. Was told after the fact not to check them but to just let them sit. So I did th...

re: Crabbing in grand isle, surf vs. bayside vs. bridgside peir - BullredsRus
Ok cool thanks. I didn't know people did drop nets in the surf. But that makes sense. I will post my results here after the weekend. Once again I'm just getting started here so if using drop nets or string line how long should I wait from setting out to checking them for the first time? ...

re: Crabbing in grand isle, surf vs. bayside vs. bridgside peir - BullredsRus
Thanks. So I'm assuming it's still too early to catch many this weekend? And when you say public access on backside do you mean by walking them out and checking. Bc I do have a boat and was considering setting some and just running them and hopefully fishing in between. Is that not allowed b...

Crabbing in grand isle, surf vs. bayside vs. bridgside peir - BullredsRus
I want to go crabbing this weekend on the island. I am new to it. From everything I've read the surf is best in July and August. My questions are is the backside good those months too? Or is there a prime time in terms of months to try the bay? I had 6 crab traps given to me (will add the $...
