I found the spacious anchor locker could hold enough rode to satisfy most nearshore-anglers' needs. The walkaround was as tight as you'd expect on a 25-footer, but with sufficient, well-placed handholds to make carrying a fish-laden rod to the bow a secure operation. When fishing from the cockpit, three anglers can maneuver around each other with ease, and the optional padded gunwales and stainless toe rails make pumping or releasing equally comfortable. The rigging station provides draining storage, a freshwater sink, cutting board and integrated space for a 25-quart cooler. You'll never have a bait cooler sliding around the cockpit again! Also near at hand is the 30-gallon live well. Other cockpit storage includes a 50-gallon fish box, 12- and 25-gallon insulated boxes, and two rod holders in each gunwale, as well as additional storage for two rods under each gunwale. Trophy does a particularly nice job here by putting fairings in the liner to guide the rod tip into the storage tube without snagging guides.
