Carolina Skiff expanded their line years ago with Sea Chaser boats, to give their buyers a more up-scale option, and at the Miami Boat Show we found their largest bay boat offering, the Sea Chaser 23 LX Bay Runner. It was sitting at the docks, with a Suzuki 200 outboard on the transom. Naturally, we couldn't just leave the boat sitting there—we had to scramble on board and get in a quick sea trial.

As you can tell, this is going to be a pretty sweet little package for light tackle anglers probing bays, creeks, and rivers for fish like reds and speckled trout. True, you probably also noticed that the boat isn't the fanciest on the water, nor is it the fastest or the most stable. But it shines when you consider value; this boat costs a fraction of some other bay boats its size. And it also has some very unique features.Carolina Skiff sea chaser LX bay runner first look video
