Our Fishing Boats

We have 2 boats both specifically designed for the tasks at hand! The first is a Custom 24ft Proline Center Console that has an open layout making it safe, stable and secure. The boat features a 200 Hp Mercury Verado Outboard, a live well large enough to hold bait for days and plenty of cooler space to hold food, drinks and snacks for your day on the water! This boat is extremely dry and was specifically built for fishing the waters of Pine Island Sound and the nearby waters of the Gulf. It will fish up to 6 people and is a great boat for inshore, offshore and all over the sound.

The second boat is dedicated to fly fishing and “getting skinny”! The Hell’s Bay Waterman is a fly fishing machine. It runs in mere inches of water and is specifically designed to be polled quietly into skinny water for big fish. The waterman is set up specifically for fly fishing. The boat has a large front casting platform with a back rest and wide open deck space to remove any obstacles that could hold you back from making that perfect cast! This is a purpose-built boat. Please request the boat at scheduling – availability is limited to weather and trip objectives.
