  • Difference in 17's

    What are the advantages/ disadvantages between a angler model (the one with the bench seat built in) and a open fisher model?

    I will be fishing the boat but do like too just go and hang out at the sand bar

    Any opinions welcome

    I think you need to look at the storage. The 17 Standard really doesn't offer much of it. With the Angler you get a bit more, another raised area to fish from or sit on. I think the Angler looks a little better too.

      Depends on what kind of fishing you are doing also. I wouldn't want to troll off an angler or fish off the back platform in any kind of chop. That said, if you are casting for redfish in the shallows its probably a better choice.
