    Looking for any info on a good center console for fish and ski. Probably 70 to 30 of fish to ski. Something around 22 to 24 feet.

    Used around 15k would be the best but let me know any other ideas . Also freshwater only around the midwest. Have no problem taking a used saltwater and using on freshwater lakes.

    Thanks

    I have a Bay Champ 22. Great boat but might be hard to find especially in that price range.

    A Champion center console, that’s about as good as it gets.

    I suggest attending any upcoming Boat Shows in your region. Gives you a chance to check out a lot of different makes and models up close. I did and it definitely helped my ideas.

    Why’s everyone saying center console? Those suck for skiing.

    Never skied behind mine but sure it would do as well as my Ranger F&S. Pulls a tube real well. Nothing will pull a skier like a dedicated ski boat but nothing fishes like a bay boat.

    Have always liked the Tahoe Deck boats, probably more for ski, but lots of room for fishing.
