Overview

My 27 foot boat floats in 10 inches of water for flats fishing. We are catching Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Permit, Pompano, Cobia, Shark, Snapper, Black Sea Bass, Sheepshead, Trout, Mackerel and Bluefish. At the same time we are able to go shallow we can handle bay and offshore fishing comfortably for up to 6 people! A 2013 250hp Yamaha 4 stroke, twin 10 ft. Power pole shallow water anchors and a 14 foot tower will provide you a fishing machine unrivaled in the industry. I also have a first mate that will make the trip a first class experience!
