Entry Description
Pic of me with my 28” Red Snapper which was caught safely released on May 22 because Snapper season doesn’t open till June 13. I put an “X“ on the side of my 251 so I can find her again. Forecasted seas were 1.5 building to 1.7. After I caught this Snapper landed a 30” Red Grouper. Seas were still building so we headed in from 44 miles offshore in 4-5 seas. I could keep the 251 on plane between 21-23 mph....still a long ride but the 251 performed like most 32 footers. Thank you Sportsman.
Favorite Feature
Handling along with the ability to get in fairly skinny water as well as stable in offshore conditions.
