Harbor pilot Walter Gautier knows the waters around his hometown of Pascagoula, Mississippi are capable of producing heavy chop and big waves. That knowledge sent him in search of a boat that would deliver a great ride, even when the inlet was at its worst.
Grady-White’s dedication to conservation runs deep. One successful program championed by Eddie Smith and Grady-White is the Dolphinfish Research Program. What first began as a state-funded initiative in 2002 is now a strong non-profit that’s set to hit over 34,000 fish tagged by the end of the year. Recently, we spoke to Wess Merten, the head of the program, to get an overview of the data they’ve been able to collect over the past 20 years and what that means for anglers, consumers, and the ecosystem.
David Poston has enjoyed every Grady-White he’s ever owned starting in 2005 when he purchased a Freedom 205. However, his love for the Grady brand became even stronger in 2019 when he crossed the ocean from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to the Bahamas on his Freedom 275 joined by two larger boats.
Grady-White Outperforms for this Rough Weather Fanatic
Since she was a young girl, boating and spending time on the water has always been a way of life for Karen Smith. In fact, she was so enamored with fishing that as a young adult she bought an inflatable boat with a 1.75 horsepower motor so she could get out on the water any time she pleased.
Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. This is the case with your dream fishing boat, a center console model that doubles as a family fun boat, too. There are many benefits to owning a Grady-White center console, but at the top of the list is the fact that you get the best of both worlds: a top-of-the-line fishing boat with all the amenities that make it equally perfect for a great family day on the water.
