Best All Around Musky Boat?
Only thing I would change is move front pedestal back a bit, its a bit too far forward for my liking, but not horrible.
But if I find $30,000 somewhere, I'm looking for a nice used Ranger.
i do have a tuffy esox mag and its a great fishing platform and i have taken it to lotw and it works fine most days if i would get a new boat and lotw was oh my list and it would be i would not be looking at that boat,
Here's a nice used one for $9,000. New engine.
These kind of tri-hulls are great for casting. Don't take it on big water in a big wind (obviously) and you will be fine.
Here's a newer one for $17,500.
Your question is one of my pet peeves. The term "best" as there is no such thing. If there was then all the other boat companies would be out of business. What you do it get the best one for what kind of fishing you do. And that even varies, with lakes and methods, etc., too many variables that folks on this board could know about you to say this is your "best". Normally I see a question like this and I stay away from it.
Bass boats which are low and don't catch the wind? Or Deep Vee that can go anywhere?
Let's keep the 20 foot glass boats with 225hp out as I can't aford them.
I think I am down to the Lund 1725 SS with a 115 hp, what do you guys think?
In the end as long as it gets you on the lake and keeps you dry, thats all that matters!
