I am thinking about purchasing a 2006 Hewes redfish 16 with 90hp 2c. I was planning on poling it in Louisiana and Mississippi marshes, the present owner only used trolling motor. Is this a good boat to pole?
300hrs. Fully serviced and meticulously maintained. Used one tarpon season. Run 45pmh easily and floats in under 7”. Great skiff wether you’re fly fishing with one guy or taking the whole family to the sandbar.
Is there anyone out there using a GPS tracking device like Garmin watch to track there poling trail ?
Id like to be able to track time, distance, and trail.
If so, what are you using it for?
What type of wearable GPS tracker are you wearing?
Id like to be able to download it to my Laptop...

Front legs 40" apart.
23" between front and back mounts.
38" width between back leg mounts.
I am getting a Lagoon Skiffs Tail Chaster (14’10”) and was wondering what the ideal push pole for that boat would be. I have never poled before. Thanks for any help. And it will be mostly on the flats of the lower Florida keys.
ps. Tips on poling is also appreciated.
Looking to buy myself my first self funded skiff. Looking for something 16-18ft, Year isn't overly important. I was looking at the Biscayne Boatworks 17' but I would not be opposed to buying an older maverick or something to refurbish if the price is right. Any input on models to look out for...
So I'm drawing up the plans for a 16' wood flats skiff. I the majority of the time someone will be poling in the aft, while another is fly fishing in the front. I can't think of a good casting deck material, short of plywood (which doesnt fit the theme of the build; classy) or planing down some...

I find myself fishing alone quite a bit and trying to pole my skiff off the stern platform sinks it too much to get a good draft without someone on the bow. I have been poling on the bow, basically backwards till I can spot something then spin it around 180 (if it's wide enough) and try to cast...
Next year I am looking to branch out and fish new places in the Bay with my Action Craft Flatsmaster. I have heard a couple people talk about sightfishing redfish around Plum Tree Island NWR in Poquoson and the place looks awesome.
My understanding however, is that the refuge was previously a...
