Action Craft 1820
Tournament Edition Flatsmaster
Saltwater Inshore Machine for Shallow Water and Bay Fishing
Saturday February 06, 2016
With all the qualities Action Craft is famous for, like a high performance modified deep "V" hull design that eats up rough, choppy bay waters, the mid size 1820 is amazingly dry riding. Built with state-of-the-art construction techniques and Action Craft™'s Pocket Drive®, the 1820 can easily pole or run in shallow water.
The 1820 appeals to anglers who are looking for a full-featured, high quality, shallow draft coastal fishing boat with all the latest innovations and styling. Action Craft designs boats with the whole family in mind, making sure that there is room for the family and everything needed for a fun day on the water. Action Craft's improved self-draining cockpit, wider gunwales, and modified diamond nonslip finish are just a few of the features you will enjoy on your new FlatsMaster.

THE H.O. SERIES. BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN BOATING AND AVIATION. Like pushing limits? Then take a closer look at our High Output Series. Because they push limits about as far as they can go - and come with everything it takes to handle it.
Like a high-performing SLE (Straight Leading Edge) gear case with nose-cone pick-ups that significantly increases water flow to the engine and provides increased cooling ability and capacity. High-quality gears with super pure, extra-tough metallurgy. And stiffer engine mounts for superior handling and control at high speeds. If youÕre looking for that extra bit of oomph, this is it. No matter the application, the H.O. series gives you the maximum performance you're looking for.
Whether I'm racing across the Indian River Lagoon or running the beaches along Florida's Space Coast, I know that I'm getting there safe and dry with my Flatsmaster 1820. One of Action Craft's most proven hulls and deck layouts, the 1820 has plenty of live well and bait well storage for the inshore angler. Although the boat is rated for a 150 hp, I opted for Evinrude's 115 High Output that's closer to a 130 hp output and I'm totally satisfied with it's performance. Wanting a lighter engine with plenty of get-up-and-go was my goal and Evinrude provided the equipment to do the job.
Captain Gina loves to fish with her 1820, but she's just as content to lay out on the deck and enjoy the Florida sunshine. The Action Craft is a good all-around pleasure boat as well as a high performance fishing vessel.

February - 2016 Fishing Report
Every February seems to be different and this one is no different.
February - 2016 Fishing Forecast
Valentine fishing in February is one sweetheart of a fishing trip on the Banana River as temperatures and coldfronts make fish predictable as the weather. Coldfronts will send the sea trout to the holes and the warmth between fronts will cause them to enter the shallow water in numbers. The redfish are ever-present and there may be mixed opportunities with them, but they should be consistant. If we have a mild winter, the fishing for reds will probably be better but a harsh winter will be more challenging. On the Banana River look for redfish and large spotted sea trout and a smattering of black drum for fun. Typically the snook are a no-show and the tarpon can be in a couple of backwater locations if they feel up to it.
