Small boats offshore

4 posts in this topic

You dont need a large sportfisher to go offshore.Properly set up,you can fish a small boat. Gotta keep your best eye on the weather and data bouys.If you are wanting to go out 50 miles like we do,Radar is a must have, in my opinion.You can lose visability without much warning,and there is ship traffic.Outriggers if you want to fish 7 to 9 rods.Know your boats limits,sometimes we have to stop short and try a plan B.Oh Yeah,be prepared to get a little WET.....This is a 26 Regulator.Dont buy a Bayliner or other cheap entry level boat for offshore.Grady White,Mako,Contender,are good solid hulls to start with...

An AIS receiver output to your plotter is also a nice thing to have.

But I agree, radar is best.

My plotter took a dump Saturday and it was black as coal out.

Compass, paper charts, timer, and radar got us back.
