unflippable, car-toppable sportspal canoe from meyer (og designed for duck hunting dogs to get in/out). i've modded it out since this redneck riviera pic with padded swivel buckets and dual anchors. had it for almost 15yrs and i've spent countless thousands of hrs fishing it in ocean/lake/streams. it's super versatile and stealthy.


Im kind of looking for something small to mess around on, originally looking at Gheenoes but kind of thinking thats more my ticket. Something simple and if i dont need to trailer it thats a huge plus. Thinking thatll be just fine on mellower days in LI Sound and the bays


the hull thing is formed out of a single sheet of aircraft aluminium.

sometimes fish it nearshore in the kelp, a few times coming back in semi-gnarly conditions. shorepound IS a problem haha. Paddles pretty good (but not as fast as a tippy canoe), and has a strong transom. i can scissor back in even when it's empty. been stocked on replacing the bench seats with these:

I've wanted a Hells Bay Whipray for years.



This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.

Can you comfortably stand on it without it being too tippy?

Old skiff I found parked next to a barn, spent the winter refreshing it with new epoxy bottom, new transom, installed hull stiffners and assorted upgrades, powered by 20 HP Tohatsu w/ELPT, will do about 20 mph with just me in it Purpose built for fly fishing, have put over a dozen large King Salmon in it in the past few weeks.

Simple fun. Now owns another ready for rebuild


I want one so badly! Perfect skiff for reaching inaccessible surf breaks or fishing/diving the kelp. Easy to tow and really economical on fuel. I love the custom rebuilds by Anderson custom boats.

Nice bay boat.

Can we talk about fishing fashion, though? Are there that many fisherman worried about skin cancer that they all have to wear full face protection or is just that you have to wear one of those now to show that you're a serious, pro-wannabe fisherman? Maybe surfers should all start wearing them, too. Or at least SUPs should.

They are super lame but i am guilty of using one sometimes. When your job is outside all day and you fish and surf when your not working sun protection is pretty important. Also some spots i go to are so freaking buggy that repellant has no effect, a buff will offer a bit more relief. Used to do the old school red hanker chief but those things don't breath at all. Keep it simple i think mines blue or green or something; some have the lamest designs imaginable.

Guy in photo is probably a guide. Those guys are on the stand all day every day poling customers around spotting fish.

Theres an awesome article in one of the most recent Drakes about the evolution of the river skiff and how it opened up the Deschutes River in the PNW. Within the last few months, worth a read

favorite childhood/teenage skiff, a mainstay (pun!) of any sailing program in the 80s & 90s:
