Default Blackjack 256 v Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid

Which is the better boat for fishing the northern gulf bays, marshes and/or near shore areas?

Thanks

The new blackjack coastal is an awesome boat with a great layout. The 2500 is nice as well. Don’t think you will go wrong with either.

I crawled all over both and ordered the BJ 256 Coastal from Metro Boating in NoLa. The Coastal hybrid layout with the LP livewell & open rear cockpit was really appealing to me for the LA nearshore and inshore fishing that I do.

I’m having this same debate with myself right now. Would like to see some good performance numbers from the Coastal 256 with a 350 or 400.

Reach out to the guys at Metro Boating in Harvey, La. George Haydel has sold BJs for years and I know he has several 350 & 400 boats running. https://www.metroboating.com/index.asp

There is a FB BJ owners page too.

FYI, I have a 256 Coastal build thread, with a 300 V8 2019 BlackJack 256 Coastal build - hull #3

Good luck.
