    Default For the commercial crowd, set net skiffs

    Who makes a good set net skiff?

    What are you running? Size and power of outboard. Post a Pic of your boat here.

    Some Builders that come to mind:

    Atec
    Lee Shore Boats
    Pacific Skiff
    HardDrive Marine
    Raider (now closed?)
    Grayling/Powerline
    New Builders?

    Did you buy a permit??

    I'm a big fan of a customized Bay Weld boat with a small console on the side, set up with brailer bags and hydraulic rollers on each side.

    But you can get by with an old wooden boat. We always used fiberglass - 20' Hamm hull could plane at 30 knots with 5500 lbs of reds on board with twin Yamaha 60's.

    It's NOT the boat and makes you a highliner - it's the location of your site and how you fish 'em. Good strategy is laying out an effective hook or trap, and always keeping your net CLEAN.

    I don't have a permit, I have a boat addiction. Setnet skiffs are the ideal load carrying, good beaching, low hp requirement boat. No comforts just work!

    In my above list I forgot to add King Salmon Marine, and Husky boats, and Bay Weld.
