Having hell finding a used intracoastal. Are there others I should be looking at?

PS - If you know anyone looking to dump their 20'+ intracoastal send them my way!

TIA!

Have you considered using a CC for bass fishing? Plenty of good options out there with Tran Sport and Haynie going to the top of my lists.

Get one of these and then watch the faces of the people you're passing while you're running 60 in 3 foot waves.

Look at the 22 Majek Extreme.

I'm in the market for one now. They will eat chop alive as fast as you want to go.

If I was going to do more bass tournament fishing I would get a Ultrex to swap out when in fresh water. The Terrova is on a removable mount.

Good boat if you want to do both salt and freshwater. I got one in October. I had a Bass Cat. Super happy with the Majek. I would have liked the lower bubble console but found a super deal on the one I brought. [Linked Image]

Sweet looking rig. I love your setup. Some of the bubble consoles don't have seats on the front. I have fished out of multiple Extremes and they are as good as it gets. They aren't tunnel hulls so the performance you would want in a bass boat is there.

Have the same boat with a 225 Optimax, Power Pole, Riptide, Garmin units, etc.. Came from a bass boat simply because I'm 20 mins from the bay, so owning a boat that could do both made more since.

OP, I would HIGHLY recommend the Extreme. I can be on West Galveston Bay Saturday fishing for trout, reds, and flounder, and then wake up Sunday morning and head to Rayburn. They are SUPER versitale boats. With the 225 Optimax, with just me and a normal load I have topped 64mph WOT.

The problem with a bass boat in the saltwater (even if it's "built for it") is bass boats just arent designed to take on the chop and the general envrioment in saltwater. A center console bay boat is..... There have been days on the bay where I'd be hating life if I was out there in a bass boat. They just aren't built for that, there's no way to sugar coat it.

Again, highly recommend the Extreme. I bass fish out of mine 8-10hr days no problem, and keep up with the Rangers and Skeeters no problem. Majek literally designed this boat to do both fresh and saltwater.

They handle chop very well!!! And they get shallower than bass boats.. I've been up on parts of Lake Conroe in my Extreme that some bass boats in the same area couldn't get to. And like said above, they aren't tunnel hull and perform very similar to a bass boat. They are fast hulls that handle like a dream..

If you have any questions let me know!

A Bullet still rates as my favorite boat of all times. I would look at this one.

I was in the same boat as you searching for an Intracoastal in 2017. After no success, I finally just ordered my Xtreme. Mine spends 95% of its life on Rayburn. [Linked Image]

That boat is bad to the bone. I think I would look really good standing on the front of one just about like it. laugh

Haha, everything’s for sale for the right price. I’ve contemplated many times getting rid of it to get back into a bass boat

I owned a 22 Majek Extreme w/ 250 SHO. It was bad to the bone. It wasn't ideal for fishing bass tournaments for me though which is primarily what I like to do.

I’ll fully agree with you on that, hence why I’ve contemplated off and on selling mine. They’re awesome boats, but definitely not a bass boat.
