I really do see a shift with people buying and having more and more CC's in our inshore and canyon's waters. Whats your opinion on this? Especially now that there are bigger and better CC's that weren't around 10 years ago!:)


This threads for you Brian (SWABY) fire away!!!! it's your thread now!!!!:thumbsup:

inshore way way way more CC than sporties, even guys with small 20' single screws are running on the right days, more power to them.

but 50 fathoms and beyond it is still dominated by sportys especially over night.

You know I appreciate your insight,but if there was a yellowfin bite and not just a bluefin bite where would all those CC's be? YES, the canyons.:) Remember the biggest restriction in a CC was 2/strokes and NEFC and that was corrected with the invent of 4/stroke outboards.:)

just my simpleton observation. :)
the big heavy boys are more abundant in water deeper than 300' :D
again just my personal observation, after my 32nd trip offshore this year i lost count ;)

and a short two years ago the yft bite wasssssss hot hot hot. and yes still more fattys than cc!
thats not to say the big boys catch any more that the center consoles, as Lance Armstrong said " Its not about the bike"!

i can absolutely see your point, and weather obviously plays a factor as to when and where the center consoles can run.

There is definately a shift to more CC's.........
Faster, cheaper and 360 fishability
The Sportys have more bells and whistles and handle the rough better... but you can't beat a cc for fair weather fishing...

Why do you say overnighting sucks on them? I am just wondering.Is it because your cold? or because you cant get comfortable? or because you cant put something in the microwave? I'm kinda curious because I have been doing overnighters to the canyon since 96-97 on my own CC's and have never ever had a problem with it. So long as you dress well.Just pull up a bean bag and if your not catching look at the stars,I have even left in the fog and rain(by the way there is no better sharking than a foggy rainy night and a stiff breeze out of the NE,it's a fact!)and not had a problem as long as you dress right.:)

CC

I currently have a 29' CC Everglades w/ twin 250 Yamaha Strokes. I love the speed and 360 fishability all the way around it:thumbsup:
I still have to watch the weather and choose long trips accordingly, but I agree with Zar overnighters suck, much better on a Big Sporty:D

done 3 or 4 on a 38' jupiter.

cold should never be an issue if you know how to dress

i dont sleep when i fish so thats not an issue either.

i have been known to enjoy a hot meal or 2 or 3:thumbsup:

and a generator above deck, strapped to the bow, is annoying. even those nice little honda dealys.:thumbsdown:

no more cc console vs sportfishing arguments!!! both obviously have their pros/cons.:)

I have fished on Timmy's Contender and the Fountain in Dec, Jan and Feb. Cold aint the issue. Laying on the deck on an overnighter just dont do it for me. I have used the beanabags and they are ok. Just dont compare to a warm bunk on the Hooked Up or the Miss Andrea. Just my opinion. I would overnight on em but would rather do it on a Sporty.

Zar.AJ.

Again where talking the last couple years that yellowfin where non existent,that you saw more sportys fishing for Marlin in the canyons I dont think all that many people with CC take marlin fishing serious as most CC guys are strickly meat hunters.:)

just my simpleton observation. :)
the big heavy boys are more abundant in water deeper than 300' :D

Can a 28'-40' sportfisher handle the rough any better than the CC? Well I think most would agree that it all depends on the manu of the CC or the Sporty.So I would consider the best 36-40' sporty and the best 36-40' CC to be an even match as far as sea keeping ability's.Granted your not out in 6-8's where your not going to have fun in the CC or the sporty.:)

There is definately a shift to more CC's.........

You know what I think my problem is?

I catch all night and never stop to have a meal or 2 or 3.:) I have 360 degree fishability and the speed I need to leave 1-2 hours later and get in 1-2 hours sooner than the big boats and have the boat cleaned and be home when the big boat pulls into port.I dont mind the cold or the wind or the rain,besides I work everyday in the same weather as I would fish in and it really makes no differance to me but I would rather be fishing.:)

but we can fit more than 2 people in the cockpit at one time , so i like to let others reel in some fish, while i stuff my face :p


What we have here is a classic case of riding on the wrong CC! :D
im still waiting for my invite :huh::)

Jerry,

I have heard nothing but great things about the everglades.
Alex and Timmy both rave about it, and she is pretty to boot!:thumbsup:

More and more CC's inshore. I don't canyon fish so I can't speak for out there.

Everyone has their own opinion. I'll take my CC as I love the speed and all around fishing ability. Nothing like being able to cover 10 miles to get on a bite in 15 or 20 minutes or less!
