I understand the argument about "better in sloppy water" re a cat hull.
If you can "pick your days" (like I can), why might I consider a cat?
It's not like I have to go out in "sloppy water".
I'm totally miffed about this. ????????????
Depends on where you fish and how long you want to enjoy the sport, fishing offshore back to back days with no rest.
The fishing is usually good in places where its hot, and hot means thermals that produce wind every afternoon.
So if you like to fish 50-70 miles out, and the wind starts blowing at noon, thats not much fishing time if you want to get back in before the chop gets to be more than 2 feet.
You can follow out other boats and anchor up at night if you leave real late for the Canyons, but here in Mexico, no one will be out there in case you have a problem, so we day fish, as weather reports are not reliable either.
In monos we would head south in the summer to come home with a following sea then go north in the winter for the same reason. But the fish aren't always just north or south, sometimes they follow the bait.
