Moved down to the coast now and I need a boat, but have no clue what kind. I've fished all my life, just never saltwater other than a pier or surf.
I've got $10k to spend. I'd like something center console that I can move around on. 17-22ft would be ideal.
My issue is that I don't do well offshore so I have to be backwater or inland, with the occasional flat days I may go 10miles off. Do I get a skiff or true deep v? I don't know what fish I'll target but I want to be able to get in some back marshes or hit the bay and maybe nearshore somewhat, something island hop with friends and to get me some flounder, clams and all that.
Anyone have any advise ? Or someone who has something up for sale?
