    Please don't ever post pics of fish like this... You're making me look bad!  :D

    Awesome fish, and killer boat man! I ran a 23 seacraft outboard for years and in my opinion there's no other 23 footer out there that can hang with it in the nasty stuff, contender included. That hull is just amazing what it will go through.

    And mojo out the yingyang to boot, obviously yours was built with a ton included as well!

    thanks !
    that rig's a friggin' beast ! i had a 31 bertram - i swapped it over to diesel from gas engines,prior to selling it - i can tell you with absolutley no exageration,that sea craft 23,it rides better than my old 31 bert,and that my friend,is a fact !

    we run that rig everywhere,from the inshore reefs to the poormans canyon - 75nm from the 2cm bouy,and on up to the lindehkohl canyon - 88 - 89 nm from the bouy...we fish that rig,year 'round -yes,even in the winter,out to the sea bass grounds - 62-66nm from the bouy...a little cold,but the fish are sure worth it...

    here's a few sea bass pictures - these are from the last trip,for sea bass - season closed on 1/1/11 - these pictures were taken on 12/31/10

    big fish of the day was 6.9lbs -7lbs...numerous fish in the 4-6lb range...
