Will spend what it takes to do nearshore/inshore. Just don't know what features are essential to fish the reefs, oil rigs, trolling out and back. Will mostly fish alone. Go out for probably 4-6 hours, come back to my fishing trailer, and go back out the next morning. Want to be able to find my way back to my launch point. Not after trophy fish. Will catch and release mostly. Not interested in more than 7-9 miles offshore. I figure a handheld VHF will be adequate.
