    I say stay more local to make it fun. The Bonita are close and on the troll should be fun . Throwing bait will get them to the boat and he can get a dozen on bait. Take him towards the 9 for some skippies. My grandkids love to fish when their catching. Keep it shorter and full of fishing...

Just hard to tell some to give it a little more time when nothing is biting. I seem to have a bit more patients than others . My son when he was 12 (Now 31)...

    Large and mostly empty. Obviously more traffic with Shelter Island closed but shit it's wide. Check your tides. I know we have had some big swings. Try pushing a full dock cart up a marina ramp at low tide. Lol Ps why would ss be your choice for people from south bay?

    My friend has the 2016 226 Commander. Bought it brand new. A solid dry ride(as dry as CC can get) Some of the attention to detail isn't the best but a mass produced boat never is. Offshore often .We have managed to shake multiple screws loose. But it flies.
