Just wanted to tap into your knowledge. After years of fishing off the Pensacola Pier, I finallybought a boat. Its a 23' (used) proline with a Evinrude 200hp oceanpro, and will be trailering it down 4 to 5 times a year. I was just wandering if this is enough boat to go out in the ocean maybe 5 to 10 miles or so.I would not be going out on a rough day, no more than 2 to 3 foot waves. In the beginning I would stay pretty close to shore til I built up my confidence. The boat came with a Garmin gps system, but no ship to shore radio. I can't believe how much ocean fishingcan get into your blood, all you guys are so lucky to live down there. Thanks for any info. that youan give me and this is a great forum!!
