    Bay Boat or offshore model? - 06 Mar, 2019

    looking at two different styles both are 21-22' both will have 150s maybe a 200 but not likely.   should I go for the bay boat or the offshore model.   I don't really fish shallow all that much, we fish Tampa Bay/St pete, we cruise the waters in North Lake County's chain, and then we go to Marathon on vacation.     I know the bay boat is more versatile,but it's not something I'll take to the humps in Marathon or out 40 miles for red snapper in June.   i also know that Bay Boats are on fire right now for a reason.   So getting one that hasn't been destroyed and is still available has been a chore to find as well.     Trailering isn't an issue for either.
