open skiff or walk tru winsheild with top
wondering what most use/prefer for days trips in SE Alaska for halibut/salmon? mostly in around haines. I have an 18' crestliner open tiller that I use but am considering moving to a 20' full top boat. Not a fan of boat loans though, I realise the open skiff may be more versatile for salt, lakes and rivers.. but a full top is warmer and extends the season. what are most using
I caught more and bigger halibut back in my old 16' lund skiff. However I dont miss those days! I wont give up my top! Last week trolling kings in a t shirt. The skiff guys in full blown arctic gear wrapped up with rubber over it. Sure dont miss those days.
