Native to the Destin FL area. Glad to be here and excited to soak up as much knowledge as i can from the community! Been a kayak angler for a few years now but recently made the jump to a solo skiff with an old 6hp outboard. I realize that I’ll be learning a lot of tactics and fundamentals from this community like basic motor knowledge and poling skills. I would eventually like to have a full size skiff with proper casting and poling platforms but for now I'm working with what I’ve got and loving every second of it. Just wanted to put myself out there and introduce myself.

Hola buddy, I am fairly new on here to. I think you made a good choice for the money. I was about to just get a Blue Water Cat with the with a peddle drive and then they raised the price so I just got a little new skiff instead. Was very affordable. Tight Lines

Good for you man. I started with a little Carolina Skiff and learned a lot on that boat. Welcome to the community, there’s definitely a. Lot of knowledge to be gained by the people on this forum.

Yeah I can understand that but like I said I’m working with what I got and for now it gets me out on the water.

No not at all! I completely understand what you’re saying. It makes sense. I can’t wait till I can afford a proper skiff! What other boats do you have?

lol I mean if I can eventually upgrade to a full sized skiff and keep the solo skiff then yeah I totally agree! I just mean upgrade in the sense that a full size skiff would allow me to take my kids out more easily.

I love my SoloSkiff, and I bought a 16' microkiff just so I could take other people out with me. I love the new boat also, but I'm keeping my SoloSkiff. I can pole it in 3" of water, and I can launch in places where the 16 footer can't launch.
