Hello all, I have an opportunity to purchase a Grady 251 CE coastal express and I’m wondering if it would be up to the challenge of walleye fishing on Lake Erie considering the waves and water conditions we experience here? Thanks very much for your help.

I believe if you watch the weather the boat would be a great boat for Lake Erie. Keep in mind there are hundreds of the deep vee walleye boats on the lake and they take the weather, so your 251 should be fine. Again, watch the weather because the lake can build up fast.

Hi Ted, thanks very much for your advice. The boat seemed to be very well made and very versatile. I’ll see if it’s still available. Thanks again! Scott

If you are close to Michigan I would be happy to see it one day.
