Pioneer, Sea Hunt, Scout, Nauticstar, and Keywest would be worth looking at if they are in your area

I know, dusty from OK dirt. Ready to go in Waco. Still haven't even gotten my fishing license, so here she sits, waiting for someone that wants a nice bass boat at a fair price

Waco, TX - closest salt worth fishing?

I just moved to Waco, TX. I see the Gulf would be a day trip from here. Anyone have recommendations for the best weekend run for inshore type fishing? Maybe even just surf or pier fishing, since I...

Used Arima 16' or 17' model. Chasers have smaller cabins and bigger cockpits, not sure what they called the ones with the bigger cabins but lots of folks actually slept in them. Will not be cheap...

I actually prefer to keep fish on ice overnight. Makes them a lot easier to clean and no blood to worry about.

Decently powered with the yamaha 90 and a good design. May or may not get a little water through the scuppers if you are big or have a couple of folks at the stern. Seems like a good price if the...

I'm using a 17' CC for trolling for striper on smaller OK lakes. When I was in NC I used a 22' bay boat. If you have any wind or bigger waves, the heavier glass boats ride better and don't blow...

Looks nice, love the color. I paid $6500 for my 2000 with a 90 Johnson, so your price with extra goodies seems pretty good. Really wish mine had the gunnel top rod holders like your's. Good luck...

Just get the KW or the Scout with a 90-115 engine. The bigger hull will make a difference. If you went used, you could also look at McKee Backwater or Marathon 17' models, Pioneer 17' CC, even the...

Anything 90 hp and under, the old style 2-stroke are not bad at all. As far as I am concerned, the newer engines big improvement is fuel injection over carburetors, at least they start a lot easier...

I looked at the 186 DC a few times and agree that standing to drive would be a pain. Even though it is not much larger, the older 2020 DC seemed a lot better to drive and fish from. Actually, most of...

There have been days where it is not too fun, but I'll take heat over winds any day. Lots of cold water and gatorade, good hat and good suntan lotion. I troll, so I always have a little breeze. ...

If it is a 4-stroke, 650 hours is nothing. Even a well maintained 2 stroke should still have years left on it. Wait another 5-10 years and throw what a payment would be in the bank, then you may not...

Not an offshore guy. Have had a 15' CC, a 17' WA, two 17' CCs, a 17' bass boat, and 18' DC, an 18.5 bass boat, a 20' CC, and a 22' Bay. I like being able to trailer and not worry about leaving it in...

Close to half the cost is going to be the engine. All are good, but Suzuki teams up with some builders and dealers for real good pricing. If you are inland, Mercury is tied to a bunch of...

Pretty sure the guide-ons are overkill. Very windy out here in OK, and not too many with experience driving CC's.. Unless they cause a problem, I'll probably just leave them on. McKee sure built a...

OK, based on stats, it is probably a first year Backwater 172, since the plate says Pulse 1700 and there is no such boat listed for McKee.
