    Many owners use the Mirage HPX-V for ocean side tarpon fishing. I think it would be a good boat for your area.
  2. This is the new model. NSS evo3S is a mid-life update to the NNS evo3. The key difference is a next generation processor. This greatly improves the speed and smoothness of the display. The NNS evo3S is already a feature packed product and the new processor in the NNS evo3S means that each one of those features is now improved.NSS12 evo3S features a high-definition 12-inch display that delivers big-picture views of charts, radar, sonar, and more under all conditions. Featuring the new iMX 8 high-performance processor, with superfast response times, you have control of an unprecedented level of built-in functionality, ultra-wide viewing angles, and reliable touch or keypad operation.

    Can't believe this has not sold by now. Priced fairly. If you are in the market, you should go look at this one. You'll buy it if you go see it.
  6. 1. GWR 941S. 7'10". Power: mag-med. Action: ex-fast. Line weight: 10-17. Lure Weight: 1/4 to 1 2. GWR 901S. 7'6". Power: mag-med. Action: ex-fast. Line weight: 10-20. Lure Weight: 1/4 to 1 1/4 These are high-end rods designed to fish skinny water. I believe the new retail price is about $430. Offered for sale at $275 each. $500 for the pair. Located in South Florida. Will ship at your cost, but shipping on the longer rod might be expensive. DM me with questions or if you would like to purchase the rods.

    I've fished this boat with Mike numerous times over the years and can attest it is "fishy" and well taken care of. I also ran the boat in a MBC Owners Tournament or two, so I know the boat really well. The price is fair and I can attest the boat is in pristine condition. Someone will get a really great boat, very versatile and able to handle just about any kind of fishing one may want to do. We have fished the backcountry of the ENP and Ten Thousand Islands, the beaches of Miami and Biscayne Bay, open water in Pine Island and many other areas of Florida in this boat. I have poled in over the Snake Bight flat and in shallow water of the Ten Thousand Islands. It's a great boat and someone will get a great deal. Even without the "additional items" it is priced fairly. Someone should jump on this one! GLWS!

    For the price, the Daiwa BG 2500 would be hard to beat. But, you can get a Shimano Stradic 2500 for not much more and it is an excellent reel.
