Thanks for the feedback. I’m in Wilmington and really justI think there's too much open water to cross once you get north of Swansboro. I'm in Beaufort and am running a 16' flats boat. Lots of days you would think twice about running a small skiff across Newport River, or around the lower Neuse. My dad had a little 14' IPB several years ago. It would get into some tight places, but was not the right boat to run back home when the summertime sea breeze picked up.
Speaking for myself - when the weather is really pretty, I'm probably going offshore on a different boat.
I was actually just the thinking this myself😂 I’m stressed about getting to my fishing spots in a micro when I’m currently doing it in a kayak😂😂😂I suppose a micro would handle more than a kayak.
