Looking for a two person fishing frame. Been looking at the DOWN RIVER SAN JUAN LD 3-BAY RAFT FISHING FRAME, but with out third bay. Anyone have any suggestions? Looking to spend under 1,500

You already know who makes the best frame, just a matter of what you are going to settle for if you don't get the best,ha!

Best if you want to get it this century.....

DRE fishing rigs are nice. They can do 2 bays, whatever you want. Im sure you'll be happy.

Hey you can get a frame in a week or two if nothing is going on, that should also tell buyers something list only has about 30 peeps on it now so things are running smooth. I think I may sponsor this place and really throw down

That's a great starter frame and how I started out. If getting rid of the hoop and seat is what you mean by getting rid of the 3rd bay, then that's a good call for a 2 person set-up. You could also save some money by eliminating the poly deck up front and putting your cooler up there for your passenger to sit on.

If you think you might expand to casting decks or an anchor system or whatever later, let them know and I think they will put the fittings on the frame and save you some retro fitting money later.

Good luck!

He is looking for the best frame that exists or will exist from a custom builder, not some imaginary one that some guy on a forum talks about all the time.

J,

I've emailed them and they quoted me without the hoop for the set up. He mentioned if I didn't get the hoop that he could mount the swivel on the front. If I get the RMR Storm I'm going to have to utilize every possible inch of space. I'm just debating on whether I should get the swivel mounted on the poly deck or doing away with the poly and chair and using a cooler. what purpose does the poly deck serve?

I saw a NRS long horn frame on a RMR storm with a casting platform and standing bar. Not a bad set up, especially when the frame, standing platform and standing bar come out to 700. The DRe frame was quoted around 1,400 with out the back hoop.
