Key West is fairly new to the Skiff market, so I've had a tough time finding other Key West owners to converse with. As such, I'm eager to hear from other owners of skiffs of any brand - Carolina, Sundance, etc. etc. Now I know a lot of guys refer to their boats as a skiff. For me a skiff is a skiff - pretty much a flat bottom boat maybe with or without a modified v hull. Generally a light weight rig that is made for fishing skinny waters in the back bays, creeks, lakes, and rivers. Obviously on the right days, we can venture into the inlets and maybe even off the beach, but for the most part these are true back bay, skinny water boats.
I'd love to hear from other skiff owners that fish our mid-atlantic waters. Where do you fish and how do you fish? How do you have your skiff rigged, what do you like an what don't you like? As an example, I'm considering adding a power pole to my Key West, and maybe even a little poling platform over the engine to occasionally pole the flats of south jersey. I'd love to hear if anyone else is doing this from a skiff? In this case I am referring specifically to skiffs like Carolina, etc. - not to flats boats that are typically rigged with poling platforms.
At any rate, I have no idea how many skiff owners are out their that frequent SOL. Maybe this thread won't go very far, but who knows maybe other skiff owners are looking to get and share advice specific to this type of boat?
Again, here are a few pics of my rig. If there is interest I'll share more details about what I like, what I don't like, and some things I learned in my first year with the boat.
