Blazer boats product review:
Blazer boats was started by the Craft family in 1978 built in Pensacola Florida. Starting with a small line of boats, the business has steadily grew to be a strong factor in the Bass and Bay boat markets. Blazers staff strives to build a quality, affordable boat’s and to maintain quality workmanship and customer service. An industry over run with multi boat corporations, a family owned boat company is something that goes along way in the Tampa bay inshore fishing charters industry.
The boat that I use on my Tampa Bay Inshore Fishing Charters:
When I got my captains license the 16 foot skiff I was running at the time was not going to cut it for customer comfort and my business demand. I was in the market for a boat right away and the Blazers caught my eye. After meeting with the rep and seeing the different models of bay boats my mind was made. Being a senior in high school and only 18 years old buying a brand new bay boat was a little out of the question, after talking to dealer’s and searching the internet I ran into a mutual friend of my dads at T.A Mahoneys who just happen to pick up a used blazer that needed some minor cosmetic work and was willing to sell. After a test ride, seeing how great the boat rode and handled rough water was the icing on the cake.
Blazer Bay 2170:
Blazer 2170 was the model I ended up settling on. Blazers most sold bay boat hull. A rolled edge around the gunnels and a carolina flair at the bow makes for an extremely dry ride. My customers and myself rarely get wet. It will run skinny and handle a chop, which is exactly what you need in a boat fishing Tampa Bay. I can fish skinny water redfish in the morning’s and run south to tarpon fish the pass’s in the afternoon. An extremely well versed boat built by fisherman for fisherman. The hulls performance is excellent and recently re-powered with a 2016 mercury 150 four stroke makes it even better.
If your in the market for a new boat, and not sure what to buy check out Blazers line of ultra high performance bay boat and bass boats. Check out different models of Blazer boats here.
College national championship:
If your in town for the college national championship or on a trip in the Tampa Bay area and interested in test driving or fishing off of a Blazer boat give Capt. Jake a call or text to set up a fishing charter or demo ride in a Blazer Bay boat.
