I fish out of a well maintained 16ft Hewes flats skiff. This boat is extremely stable and rides through rough water easily while still able to get onto the shallow flats to stalk redfish. The boat is equipped with a push pole, Minn Kota Terrova trolling motor, a gps, and power pole. It is powered by a 90hp Yamaha motor. I have been the sole owner of this vessel. It is able to quetly fish the flats but can also cross rough water bays on windy days and get to areas many lightweight skiffs cannot go.
