"Hi, my name is Captain Layne Wagner of Hawk One Charters. I've been a captain for over 40 years. I've fished all over the world and now I'm up here in Long Island, New York. You can find me online at Hawk One Charters, I'll be talking to you today about saltwater fishing. The saltwater fishing there are three basic boats that I'm gonna discuss right now. One is an inshore, bay flats boat, one is an offshore, near shore fishing boat and one is a deep sea fishing boat. Now these boats can be interchangeable, but they each have their specific use. The inshore bay flats boat goes in shore, shallow water fishing, back bays. Then there's the near off shore which goes in deeper water, it's a little larger, a little stouter a little sturdier, able to take rougher water. Then you have your deep sea boat, thirty or more feet, tuna, sail fish, sword fish, deep sea fish. So that's the basic three types of boats there are.
