Fishing super-skinny water is all well and good, but sometimes fly-fishermen need to venture out of the extreme shallows of the backcountry to take advantage of what a particular season offers in open water. For the summer months, Pathfinder’s new 2600 HPS Bay Crusher is the perfect vessel for chasing albies in the nearshore waters of the mid-Atlantic, fishing rolling swells for striped bass in the Northeast or motoring out from Florida’s beaches for tarpon. The Bay Crusher is the latest addition to the fully revamped Pathfinder model lineup. In short, the boat was designed to offer offshore running and fishing capabilities never before seen in a trolling-motor-compatible bay boat that boasts an impressive draft of only 15 inches. With that being said, anglers can still enjoy inshore opportunities but can easily head the bow into bigger water for a totally different fly-fishing experience.
