  1. Solo Fishing on Flats Boats

    I fish the Gulf Coats flats off the coast of Texas and am considering purchasing a Maverick HPX (or HPXV or HPXS). My concern is whether or not I’ll be able to use the boat while fishing without a partner to sight fish for Redfish. I’ve read about people fishing solo polling from the bow but never seen anyone doing that and I’ve never tried to do it myself. Is it reasonable to think that I’ll be able to have a good solo fishing experience in a Maverick (or any flats boat for that matter)? I hope to fish a few days a week and will sometimes be fishing by myself and don’t really want to do a lot of blind casting. Any other recommendations for techniques for fishing alone?
  2. It took me 1 year to finish the refurb on my 2006 Maverick HPX but she is looks BEAUTIFUL now that she is done!! Here is a video of me testing the boat out over the past 2 months. I hope you enjoy!! :-)
