Running Egret 189 in 10K

Started running my Egret 189 around 10K and was looking for feedback from others running this rig. I know I have seen a few of them around.

Where is the best ramp to launch?

What areas to steer clear of completely?

How to pick days for winter tides?

Fishing in the back vs. outside?

    1. Your choices are limited because there aren't that many ramps, but all can be your best choice depending on weather, tides and where you want to fish.
    2. None really, but you have to once again consider the season, weather and tides.
    3. North wind > 15kt for 2 or more days will blow out the back bays in the winter and prevent risers from fully coming in. Combine this with spring tides and you will not be able to get out of some ramps.
    4. Very generally, winter inside and summer outside - fall and spring depend on time of these seasons you are fishing and the climate patterns.

    Your Egret is a great hull for outside summer fishing as it will get you anywhere along the coast at high speed in most any weather. Winter (say Dec-Feb) it will be less optimum inside but still capable of getting to many good spots if you pick your days.
