Uprising Tours Fishing – Knotty Pirate

After countless fishing adventures and unforgettable trips, Uprising Tours Fishing has an even better offer for you. Come join the crew of Knotty Pirate, a new boat that accommodates more people than the first one. You can enjoy this magnificent tour with more of your friends and family, and add more arm strength behind the rod.

Knotty Pirate is a 30’ custom built boat that accommodates up to 8 guests. This center console is powered by twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and features new navigational and safety gear. To maximize your fishing chances, the boat has a fighting chair, outriggers, a cooler, a live bait tank, and snorkeling and spearfishing gear. No matter how you imagined your day here, Captain Eric has the equipment for it.

The crew specializes in offshore fishing, so you’ll encounter lots of big game species, such as Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Kingfish, and Marlin. As always, you can never know what else may bite your hook. If you have any special requests, such as snorkeling and spearfishing, let the crew know in advance.

It’s so easy to get ready for this trip. Since the crew covers your fishing license, full equipment, food, drinks, and catch cleaning service, you basically only need to show up. Bring your camera and keep those memories alive. Don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen, to make fishing more enjoyable.

Another day brings another adventure. To start yours, take a trip with Uprising Tours Fishing!
