I have been shopping for a duck boat for a couple weeks. I duck hunt the shallow flats around Corpus and also Lake Corpus Christi/ Choke Canyon. During the summer I fish the Nueces and run the lakes for catfish. I currently have a 17ft jon with a 27hp MB LT. Gets the job done and will take me nearly anywhere I want to go but its SLOW. Looking for something a little more comfortable with a SD.

Thanks guys

I have a gator trax being built almost exactly like this one but a foot longer

will be a good duck boat for open bays/lakes plus it will run really shallow

I think you made an extremely wise choice. It won't do everything. No boat can do it all. That boat you are getting will do a whole lot more in the long run than any mud rig could ever do.

I really feel I found the best all around package

Will be a fun fishing rig plus a killer cast & blast boat in the fall

I went and got in a 18'x60" model CC at bass pro and it was fine.

Mine isn't gonna have the catwalks on the side so it will have more floor space

You wanna trade? I want one that is bigger. Let me be cleear here, a bigger boat. I either have to drop some tonage, give it to my wife or trade for a bigger one. The best option would be a combination of all three.
