Anglers have ample seating in the front and rear of the vessel. For larger species, there’s also a fighting chair provided, which is perfect during Tarpon fishing trips, to give the angler the ultimate advantage.

This boat was made for sportsmen with a wide front deck perfect for casting. Equipped with three live wells and dry storage to keep your items safe.

Common species caught on these inshore trips are Snook, Red Drum, Trout, Bonnethead Shark, Sheepshead, and more. In addition to a great fishing experience, you’ll get an up-close look at the inshore ecosystem with an experienced guide. If you want to test your strength, there’s a year round Goliath Grouper that can weigh as much as 500lbs. Get up close with the ocean’s top predator with tag and release Shark. Can you hang on?!
