If you’d prefer a mixed bag of catch, you will target Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Goliath and Gag Grouper.
Capt. Scotty has a reliable and stable 24’ bay boat that will serve as your fishing platform. He custom built the vessel himself, so you can be sure it’s in prime condition and perfectly suited for inshore escapades.
The boat is outfitted with a 200 HP Yamaha engine and can efficiently take up to 5 people to the productive fishing grounds. Bear in mind that up to 4 anglers can fish at the same time.
You will find quality rods, reels, and tackle ready to use on board, and your guide will take care of the fishing licenses as well. After your excursion is done, the captain will fillet everything you caught for your convenience.
