The Versatile Bay Boat
Bay boats are a step up from flats boats, with a slightly deeper v-hull allowing for this boat’s versatility. The deeper v makes it possible to go offshore in these types of vessels. Bay boats are made for fishing; large bow and aft casting decks provide plenty of room for anglers to drop their lines. If properly outfitted, they could also pull the kids around for a little water sporting fun, but the primary focus of this Skeeter SX2550 Fish is to, well, fish.
With the ability to still get into nearly 18 inches of water and go offshore, this powerful bay boat offers the opportunity of catching a variety of fish. While this boat is made with saltwater fishing in-mind, it is absolutely not limited to the sea. You can launch this boat in many freshwater lakes and rivers throughout Florida.
Inshore and offshore fishing are a must in Florida, and this powerful bay boat makes it possible with just 1 single vessel. Fish inshore waters for some Snook*, Permit, Redfish*, Sheepshead and maybe some Spotted Seatrout*; take the boat offshore to try your skills at Crevalle Jack, Blue Runners, Cobia, and Hogfish; or drop the 2600 in some freshwater to catch some Largemouth Bass, Freshwater Catfish, and Black Crappies.
If performance is your primary focus for choosing your boat, the Skeeter SX2550 Fish is a fantastic choice. With a strong engine and a lot of quality features that come standard, this bay boat should be in your list of top contenders.
