Re: Can we talk Boats?

Spent 6 months + looking at every kind of bay boat and hybrid I could find. Came from a 21’ Sea Pro CC (not the bay boat).

Need advice on a Key West charter

Question for the group: Going to a wedding in Key West in February, the groom would like to take his guys out on a charter.

Re: Louisiana Shark Attack

Actually, bull sharks have been confirmed as far north up the Mississipi River as Alton Il and over 2,600 miles up the Amazon. They also reportedly have a resident population in Lake Nicarauga which is completely fresh water.
