    JUSTLOVETOFISH,
    If you are going to use the boat in both freash and salt water, it would be best to look at the Ranger Intercoastal, or a center console bay boat. I have fished off Bass boats and center console boats. If I were going to just fish Freashwater I would go with the Bass Boat. If I were fishing both no question I would go with the center console of the intercoastal. If you want either boat give us a shot.

    I am in the market for a CC bay boat, plan on making the purchase early next year. As long as the boat has livewells and a trolling motor, it should be usable for most freshwater applications. I can bass fish out of a CC, I can't chase reds in a bass boat...or at least I shouldn't. Go with the bay boat, just my $0.02

    I agree with Chitown. I had a bass boat for 12 yrs, did really enjoy it until I got a CC. Lot more room to move around in and much more versible. I have no problem fishing any of the lakes in the area> I can bass fish out of it just fine troll, chase whites or what have you and have the option of taking it to the coast.

    Only downside to bass fishing in a bay boat is the wind will blow you around more. Harder to stay on a point, etc. You find yourseld achoring, tying off to something.

    Well worth the tradeoff IMO.

    Trey your the 4th or 5th person I know wanting a used bayboat. Another main advantage of a CC is the fact you stand while you drive it allowing you to read the water and look for channels/hazzards, and also baitfish
