Want to thank u for viewing my post, so I live in menifee area and there is lots of local lakes that I'm interested in fishing on but I would also like to take it out in the ocean not to far out more inshore fishing. Would want to see what brand and size boat would be recommended. I've looked at a few mako boats at bass pro like the 18lts and a bayliner that I was told to stay away from. I would like to stay under 40k prefer a new boat I'll be using mostly in diamond Valley and perris for local bass and striper fishing and for ocean something that can work inshore better if I can do offshore. Is mako brand good ? Really like the parker, grady white, and ranger boats but there expensive to purchase new. A mako boat is at a affordable price depending on the model really like the 18ft lts but I dont know if it would work good in the ocean. Thanks hope someone can guide me.
