Hey there im considering getting a Viking 78EB. How effective would it be for bottom fishing and going for GT?

Length Overall (LOA): 72' 8 (22.15 m)
Beam: 20' 0 (6.1 m)
Draft: 5' 9 (1.75 m)

personally I think it`s a bit 'going overboard' for chasing GT`s, but it would be very comfortable for drifting the flats bottom fishing for winter whiting  or trolling for flatties

Its main focus is for trolling. This is more of " can it do it? " more of thing.

yes, it could do it....personally I`d be using the Viking's dory for the trolling, otherwise you would be paying ridiculous $$$'s for your GT, whiting and flatty fillets....

If you can afford one of these

you go right ahead and buy it. While you are at it, you can buy a smaller boat with more manoeuvrability for chasing the GT’s

good luck on whatever you decide.
 

a very nice vessel

Or is it better to go for the smaller 54 convertible? What do you think?
