When it comes to remote access and unparalleled efficiency, canoes are hard to beat. And although determined anglers can certainly score under paddle power, modern outboards obviously offer increased range and fishability. Another negative aspect of fishing from a canoe is their inherent design, which makes them prone to tipping with an unbalanced load.
Combining the benefits of an ultra-shallow drafting canoe and traditional skiff, Gheenoe’s Low Tide 25 is one of the most popular and capable of all micro skiffs on the market. But don’t think for a split second that this backcountry platform is anything like your grandfather’s Gheenoe. While incorporating the proven reverse chine design that offers maximum stability, the LT 25 is the largest Gheenoe to date and offers more space for anglers, tackle, gear and larger outboards. While the LT 25 can be fully customized to the owner’s desires with the option of a tiller or center/side console, the newest model features an elevated fiberglass console that enables the operator maximum visibility. Outfitted with a 25 HP Tohatsu, the Low Tide 25 literally skips over the water’s surface and cuts through a chop with ease. From remote flats to deep backcountry holes, the Gheenoe Low Tide 25 will take you places you never knew existed. Custom Gheenoe, customgheenoe.com
