  1. Was told and shown pictures of a BFT that was caught this past weekend outside of the beach. Said it wasn't the only one hooked just the only one landed. Sounds like it may be time to beef up the gear.

    Leaning Post for sale

    Thanks for the info and pics. I'm currently considering a mako 18lts and want to put a leaning post in instead of the flip flop cooler that comes with it. This looks like it might fit the bill. Don't wait on me if you have a buyer but if its still available in the near future I'll let you know.

    Mako 18lts

    Captain, I think I once saw that you had a Mako 18LTS..?? I could be wrong but if not, I was hoping you could help me out with any info you can offer on this boat. I'm currently considering on as my next boat but would like some feedback from someone who has had some time in one. 1. Are these boats suitable for 2-3 anglers at most? Maybe even 4 if only running to a sandbar to hangout in the sun? 2. They are rated for a 115. Would opt for this or would a 90 be plenty of motor? 3. Was there ever a time when you wished for an aft livewell in addition to the one in front of the console? Would makeshift cooler livewell suffice for this? 4. I don't plan on making runs in the Bay but would like to know what kind of water you feel this boat can handle? 5. Mako shows two under ganwale rodholders on each side but I can't tell what the rod handles would fit into. Do they just slide into the rod tubes and hang or are there holders there for the rod butts? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. Tommy

    What size cooler can you put under it? 72, 94???
  5. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of "bait" are you using? I'm not familiar with any live bait thats available this time of year. I'd like to get down there some time soon and have artificials that I like to use but if the bite is on live bait, I'd like to know what you guys are using. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
  6. I was thinking along the same line of buying a bare hull w/front and aft decks and then having some custom work done. I see alot of guys in the Florida areas putting bigger decks on the back and having the center console mounted on top of that with a small leaning post or captains chair behind. With this configuration, it leaves a pile of room in the hull for seating, bait tanks etc... The only problem I think I would have with it would be fishing while anchored; there wouldn't be much access to the back of the boat. good to hear all opinions. I would still like to hear more if available.
  7. C-n-S, Thanks for the input. I really like the 22's as well but not looking to go that big this time. I may consider a 21' but at this time I'm wanting to keep it low key and cost efficient. I like the layouts of the Nauticstars and from what I can tell, they are well built. For what little use I got out of my 24', it wouldn't make sense to go anywhere that big again. I'm even considering the thought of buying two skiffs; a jv13 w/20hp tiller and a 19 or 21 dlv elite. I can get both of these for nearly the same as one 21'. Again, thanks for the input and I look forward to any more available information.
  8. -Z- Thanks for your response. I am considering a skiff as well but thought I'd ask about the Nauticstar here. I'm really surprised I haven't received any more responses than this. I researched an earlier post about the brand from a couple of years ago and thought there would have been more input since. Once again, thanks, and I look forward to any more thoughts on this.
  9. Posted this in "General Chat" but didn't get any feedback so I thoughts I'd try here. I just recently sold my Triton 240LTS and am looking to downsize to a 18-19 footer that I can use both inshore and in the inland lakes and rivers. I've recently been looking at the Nauticstar 1910 but don't know much about them other than what I can find on the Internet. It appears to be a well made boat that I could use to do anything from crappie fishing and local bass tournaments to chasing reds, trout, spot, croakers, stripers, and cobia in the bay when weather permits. I'm looking for any opinions or thoughts on this boat good or bad that any of you can offer. I look forward to your responses and thanks in advance.

  11. Picked the boat up from the shop and took it out to make sure all repairs that had been made were good to go. Everything checked out good. Heard there was a good redfish and spot bite going on around the Indian & Dividing Creek area. Fished around for a few hours with only small croaker to claim. Regardless, the whether was great, slick calm waters, and clear as can be. Could see 6-7' down in the water column. Came back across the Whitestone bridge and saw a pile of boats anchored up out from Cherry point. I'm assuming they were on the spot bight that I was looking for. May try them next week.
