I fish 2 WA's all the time in 2 different situations. 25 Cobia WA 250 Yammi OX66 in OCMD out to 55 miles. This is my inlaws boat that I take offshore 6-8 times per year & striper fish OC inlet for a week in early winter. This boat has all the bells & whistles- alum enclosure, riggers, full electronics, 15hp kicker, all the good stuff. 21 Trophy WA 125 Merc, buddies boat that we use for striper fishing the susky flats (my home waters). I took that boat out 40+ times this season. This boat is bare bones. Cobia Pro's/Cons: pros- Fast, dry, offshore capable. Great trolling & fishing platform for 2-3 anglers. Great ride in rolling seas. Soft entry on soft waves (not steep) The enclosure is nice for getting out of the weather. cons- The boat will beat the snot out of you in the chop. WA's are no match to CC's for ride quality. The enclosure makes the boat tough to fish in tight condions like OC inlet. It's difficult to get to the helm in a jam. The cabin is worthless. To "walk around" off shore is not a easy task. Fighting a fish, forget about it. Trophy Pro's/Cons: Bare bones open bay fishing boat. Dry soft ride. Yes, soft in hard chop. Plenty of comfort for the bay. Cons: Not many. Small engine=kinda slow. No decent live well. Cabin is useless. I own a bowrider & a old school express style fishing boat, if I had a choice, I would buy a 25' or so CC with a full enclosure.
