I have an Angler 22 WA. It is a 2001 hull and I love it. It has more fishing room in the cockpit than some 24 ft boats. Its drawlbacks are it is light (easy to tow and it's fast on the water) but it will pound in choppy water. The 17 degree deadrise makes for great driftfishing or at anchor. The boat is very stable. The deadrise does add to the pounding, but going slower to make the run more comfortable is not a problem for me.
I have a 200 yamaha 2 stroke ox66 on it and it is a good match. A 200 four stroke will put the back scuppers dangerously close to the waterline. The CC version is even nicer. It was available with a full transom and the engine on a bracket. More fishing room!!!
All in all; the boat has been very reliable. It is all composit so no wood to rot. I use it recreationally; it would never hold up to commercial use like a parker. If you know its limitations, its a good boat for the money.

I have a 22b which I love but do agree that the 17 degree dead rise can be hard when running offshore on days that are less than ideal. I have the full transom with engine bracket along with a 200 Yamaha ox66 which is also perfect for this boat. I just installed some Bennett trim tabs which have really help with the overall ride and control of the boat. I do a lot of offshore drift fishing which is probably why I love this boat so much.........very stable. This boat in my opinion has a lot of room on deck.

Here's when she had her hull replaced by Angler with a 2011 hull. Previous hull had cracked stringers.

I rented one in Key Largo last summer. It will pound in a chop. We took it offshore in ~2 fters and had to take it slow to make the ride manageable. Felt safe the entire time, but not always comfortable. Fortunately it's a short ride to blue water down there. We also fished bayside, sometimes in pretty shallow water. Not a true bay boat, but it got the job done mostly. Had to trim the motor pretty high sometimes, but never got stuck! So I'd classify it as a passable multipurpose boat, but that isn't really that great at either offshore or shallow water fishing. In my home waters on the Chesapeake, this boat would be fine in the summer, but I'd much rather have my Grady in the chop spring, fall, and winter.

It seems some people won't be happy until they've driven Angler boats right off the face of the
water. I suspect that a large part of the dislike for Angler boats has been generated by the site cited above.

The Angler Boats site states that they have been in business for over 35 years. It's hard to imagine
how such a supposedly bad boat manufacturer could stay in business for so long if all the bad press
about it is true.

What must be true is that all the animosity towards Angler Boats festered on the site
mentioned above has resulted in damaged sales for Angler Boats and poor
resale value for Angler Boat owners.

I checked out Angler Boats at a boat show a few years ago. I felt they had some weak
spots, but nothing I wouldn't expect from a boat that was priced several thousand
dollars less than most of the other boats sitting on display all around it.

The only thing for sure about Angler Boats is that they don't resell very high.
Then again, I priced a new Grady White 208 recently. A bare bones 208 was quoted at 60k.

I can tell you this.............if you do purchase an Angler, they have some great people working for them at their factory in Miami. I had to get my hull replaced on my 2001 CC after I suffered some damage to it while offshore (I think I came in contact with a humongous turtle ). Repair estimates by a few local shops came in at an average of $6500. This was when I called Angler to explain my situation. They offered me a brand new 2011 hull with them doing all the work for $7000 so this became a no brainer. After 4 weeks, my boat was complete and ready for pickup. (Good thing I had insurance to cover 90% of my costs).

The 2011 Hull is slightly heavier due to improvements in overall construction over the years and sounds and feel solid when compared to the 2001 hull. Still a rough ride overall with the 17 degree deadrise and seas beyond 2 ft with a short period but definatly rides smoother with the added supports and extra foam down under.

Default 1998 Walk about Angler 22 foot 8 foot beam

Great self -draining baot.
I had her in Montauk NY for four years, with a 225 susuki...thing flew like a raped ape. put 1400 hours on here, 40 miles off shore a feww time no worries.... plenty big seas, (it is true that you fet every wave) but great following sea boat...huge cabin ....(bigger cabbin than the auquaspotty 24) huge dance floor..very sturdy..... Yes a 25 foot regulator will ride better throught the waves...just go a little slwoer and enjoy....chop did not bother me...I would trim up moter and kerep the bow down.

I also fished off of a 2o foot grady over nighter.....2 foot makes a difference.
