I don't think I would take it out on the bay. I saw one out there once and when a breeze came up he had a real problem getting back to shore , not the ramp.
This, there are days where there are more bass boats at some launches than multi-specie boats. Pick the right day and if the wind does start to pick up get in. Trim up a bit get the bow high and they can take an amazing amount of water without issue.Lots of Bass Boats on the Bay. Just be smart
I'm sorry, but I've never heard of any tournaments ran in 6 fters on the bay. You'd need a NE wind and small craft warning for those waves, and they cancel all tourneys then.The boat can way more in the way of waves then you can.
Bass tournaments run in 6fters all the time.
Most bass rigs have two bilges and float when completely submerged.
Back in the 80’s I went out on Munoscong bay in a buddy’s bass boat when slight wind came up. Waves were between 1 and 1 1/2 footers! All three of us were drenched when we got to shore and swore we would never do that again! He had moved up from Pontiac area where he fished bass tournaments mostly! After that day he decided to sell the boat and bought a deep v which was much more comfortable to be in. Just our preference but will never be caught in a situation like that again!I'm looking to buy a used boat and ran across a good deal on a Stratos 201 elite bass boat. I primarily walleye fish and know it would be fine on most lakes I fish, however I'd like to fish the bay as well. Is there anyone who uses one on the bay and how does it do? Is it fine for chop? Only will handle a little chop?
