Since falcon doesn’t make boats anymore, what is the best brand for striper fishing now?
Thanks

Any boat that is not sinking!

Blazer Bay make a similar boat to the Falcon if you want that style. I like fishing out of a regular bay boat personally.

If I had the money it would be a black colored front console blazer 2400 with a 300 yammy on the back.

Nice ride J-rod! Blazers are a nice boat no doubt but REALLY love the falcons
Check this out. I’m not best at this stuff. North Texas Marine has it

I don’t know how the blazer bays ride but every Falcon I have ridden in beat you to death

I'm pretty sure the blazer hull is he same as the old Kenner hull. Ive ridden in both and they seem to ride well. The issue I see with the falcons is that they are not in business any longer so you are not going to find one less than 20 years old. Most you see these days for sale have been ridden hard... Most have been rebuilt and some look great but not fo the price people are asking (i understand the Blazers are expensive as heck). In my opinion they beat the heck out of you as well. I'll be saving my pennies for a similar boat as posted above by J-ROD. beautiful boat man.

Heath, if your looking at Pure Bay's and Blazer Bays, might as well check out Sportsman 247's and 227's as well if you haven't already. I have a 227 and it handles everything great.

If you are considering the Sportsman 247, you should check out the Robalo 246 Cayman also. I have a 2019 and could not be happier with ride and design. It meets all my fishing needs and as importantly... it exceeds my wife and family needs. No return trips to shore for bathroom breaks. Its got a 12" draft and 9' beam. The gunnels are a foot wide so you can walk on them. Over 100 gallons between 3 aerated and insulated livewells. Its rated for 350hp... I have the Yamaha 250SHO with jackplate and trim tabs... in good water conditions I've hit 48mph. This is my 10th boat and my first new boat. I had it rigged almost to the max also so Its a fish finding machine!.

CHAMPION FISH, Tomorrow I'll be on the Brazos/Whitney launching at Kimball Bend. I live close to Lavon and use it often... this past Sunday morning even caught crappie in 35'. I love Texoma and Tawakoni. Plano Marine sells Robalo. I have a 12' Solix indash, Garmin Livescope, 112# Ulterra, and a 15' Talon.
