The boat features a tower and is outfitted with a conventional assortment of fishing technology and navigational electronics, including Fishfinder, GPS and radio. Multimedia system as well as a cooler with ice can also be found among the vessel’s amenities.

Eveything was great except the wind and weather. It made it difficult for is to make a plan, leaving is running late on getting bait. Then we were not able to net as much required for chumming to get the kingfish that were all around is. We did get 7 good spanish mackerel and some redfish that were too small to keep. Overall the Captain takes prise in his work, and does a great job. He did compensate is for the lack of bait, and we ended up with about 20 lbs of mackerel.
