I run an F150 on my 22-footer, and its top speed pushes 50, so I blinked the first time I saw that number "250." I was eager to put this beefier 22 to the test.
I normally love fishing the Indian River off Stuart, Florida, but the late-November day we chose to run these usually protected waters proved one of the roughest and windiest I've encountered. When the wind kicks up to 20 mph, I'm usually fishing from an armchair in front of the TV. But as in the best of times with this job: Somebody had to do it.
