Entry Description
During a week off recently my family trailered our 2019 Sportsman 282TE to Fort Pierce so I could try and catch a Mahi which I had never caught but was one of my bucket list fish. We stayed at a local marina and the wind was blowing hard but we were able to get out a few days offshore. We found a weed line and started trolling and I managed to catch my very first Mahi ever! Needless to say I am hooked for life on fishing and love our new boat and all the options it came with.
Favorite Feature
I love the layout and versatility of the boat and how well the 282TE performs on the water. This model is built as a fishing machine and has 360 degree fishability for chasing down the big ones.
