You’ll be fishing from a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat, equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, and safety gear. The boat’s shallow draft is perfect for fishing shallow ponds, flats, inlets, and inshore waters. The deck is spacious with enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time and kids are more than welcome aboard.
You’ll be fishing the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the rivers, bays, lakes, and marsh ponds that surround Port Arthur. Here, you’ll be able to target species such as Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Tripletail, and Spanish Mackerel. Capt. Will will provide you with state-of-the-art Shimano, Loose, and 13 Fishing rods and reels so you don’t have to lug around your own tackle.
Your captain is an expert fly fisher so if you have your own fly gear, bring it on board and Capt. Will will take you to the best spots for fly fishing.
