I fish bass tournaments and love the layout and usability of the bass boats but I also fish inshore adn tend to find myself in some pretty skinny water chasing those fun shallow fish. The bass boats have lower side walls that if I were to run in the bay it would get a little too rough at times for the boat to handle.
I have really been interested in the Hewes Redfisher somewhere between an 18' to 21' since 21' is the max for most bass tournaments. I have recently found the Ranger Cayman as new as an 09 model that seems to be pretty identical to bass boats but is still a flats boat (white decks, larger single livewell, poling platform, saltwater trolling motor trailer and motor). I have pretty much checked out all the flats boats and bay boats but I'm interested to hear from yall on what you think.
Thanks in advance I know its a long list but I want to make sure I'm doing all the right research before I invest in such a large purchase. I guess you need to decide if you want the seating layout of a classic bass boat or if you want a center console boat type layout. Thanks, I don't mind the center console at all most the flats boats have it and honestly I prefer it. And I get sick on a freakin merry-go-round so its safe to say I dont do much (none) off-shore fishing I tend to stay north of land.

I have it custom rigged with dual 109 lb thrust 36 volt trolling motors, elevated casting platform and powered by the finest - a 115 Pro XS Mercury Optimax. It was a windy one today for us out of Crystal River and myself and fellow Captains Mark Zorn, Rick Spratt, William Toney, Zach Hoffman, Randy Hodges and Jeremiah Carlucchi fished a great group for the organization Chrisite's, out of the Best Western. Another fantastic day on the sheepshead grounds with Mike, Tim and Mike and these gentlemen did great. Need a price for boat name 16x48 SeaQuestration both sides and new Cape Horn on each side as well to match. I know that bass boats draft pretty shallow but they are not built for the salt that I like to put them in. The hewe's looks to have larger side walls that I think would be better in our bays but still be shallow enough to run in the skinny water i like to get into and be good to fish the bass tourneys. You could put a saltwater trolling motor and outboard on a bassboat to fish brackish and ICW but you wouldn't have a good boat for going offshore -- not enough freeboard.
I have checked out the pathfinder, the thing with those style bay boats is the front deck, they're recessed instead of flush like the flats and bass boats and their draft is a little bit more than than the others. This step-by-step tutorial will walk you through how to build a picnic table with a built-in tabletop cooler bin and replaceable cover.

I have a lifetime of knowledge on Citrus County's waters and look forward to a memorable day on the water with you.


It handels the shallow flats and offshore seas with ease and it's an extremely comfortable dry ride.
I had Tash, Shawn, Tom and John on board and with the conditions the way they were, I had to get creative on where to fish.
I had Clell and Lee on board and with gulf water temperatures below 60 degrees, the sheepshead are a best bet. The recent cold front has kicked up the winds, blew out the water and it looks and feels like winter outside.

I'm not a big fan of fishing the main river, so we eased along in the salt river and did quite well.
We had an out standing day with a great mix of trout, numerous and numerous grouper and several sheepshead to fill out the day. The III same colors but would go on our tuna door as a seperate decal, the beam is 10'2"s , we'd need our Port, Berlin,NJ under it as well.
The Dorado has ample storage to keep the decks clear for scurrying feet with our regular multiple hook ups. The team and I just drifted live shrimp under a DOA deadly combo corks and caught several slot sized trout, plus a pair of pompano.
However, soon as it get's favorable for making it out, I'll be back and the sheepshead should really begin biting well. I would advise you to take a really close look at Pathfinder Bay Boats -- really laid out well for fishing in general. We pulled anchor right at 1pm and then used the summer kitchens at the Best Western to prepare a fine shore lunch. In the mean time, I've been tying flies, organizing tackle and watching the marine forecast. Would like a graphic in the middle something like a cartoon woman looking pissed off or something. Live shrimp on knocker rigs were the ticket and we also added a couple trout to the catch to end the day.
