    Well that'll be an easy $1000 for Brad.

    Good luck! I'd like to get out there, know very little about it, but I can surely put a lure in one's face and I can get away during the week. Let me know if you guys have a spot.

    Ok, I'm sure you're a badazz. I just wouldn't want to compare fishing 1099s with Brad.

    [QUOTE=Underslot;504356]funny thing is that they never leave, unless you guys are getting them on the beach you're not giving away anything secret. Anyone can catch a Cobia out deep ALL year round - great catch on the way in from offshore. Unless I see land in the pics... whatev![/QU

    You seem to sure know everything Underslot. Wish I had the skill and experience. Just an admirer cause it is rare for someone to be so good.

    I will even offer to give you your $1000.00 back for a deposit on an Egret. After you fish with me, you will want one.
    The Egrit clan is an interesting group. I fished on the very first Egrit in Islamorda in 1984 with Capt Jamie Brodie. Jamie has long since died. I have fished on 8 different Egrits and they are fine boats with premium finish and performance. I have also spent a week in Miami having warranty work done on a 6 month old boat 18' because the transom fractured. An attorney friend of mine owned it and I volunteered to take it down because I talked him into buying the boat. Bottom line, they are great boats but they dont make great fisherman. If owning a 50K 18' flats boat makes you a king, congradulations.

    Actually, I probably caught more fish out of my last 2 Action Crafts but when the opportunity to own the best boat in it's class came along, I had to jump on it.

    Secondly, price any of the upper tier flats boats in the 18-19' range and they are all approaching the 50k mark.

    King? I don't think so. Great fisherman? My son thinks so and that is all that matters to me.

    Keep your congratulations to yourself. I don't need them.

    Your response demonstrates my point about many Egrit owners. "Best in its class"? Most of us would consider draft a huge priority for a "flats" boat. Sorry Brad, 9 inches is not "best in its class" with respect to draft. Others consider sound a huge deal. Egrit is good but hardley "best in its class". Others consider weight, Egrit even with Kevlar is heavier then a hand full. The point is this, I have read your and other posts on other sites as if the Egrit is the be all end all boat. And I agree it is a great boat. But boats are like women, there is no perfect one. You most likely will disagree but I have been in a kevlar Egrit while another high end "flats boat" was able to get to the fish when we could not. So I guess it comes down to what matters. I will continue to come off plane when passing you in the ICW while you are working a bank. Tight lines.
