Hot Kingfish & Little Tunny Bite in the morning, and quietly maneuver
through the shallow flats in search of Redfish, Snook & Tarpon in the
afternoon. With her low profile design, the Carolina-style bow flare
and extra wide 8' 4 1/2" beam, she delivers more comfort, less wind
resistance, and an extremely dry ride. The large, unobstructed casting decks
are ideal for fly-fishing and the oversized gunnels deliver a 360° fishing
dead & artificial bait, tackle, fishing licenses, sodas & water, ice, fish
cleaning & bagging and no fish no pay guarantee. Our professional and
friendly attitude is free of charge.
