Your ride will be a 22’ Sportsman bay boat powered by a 200 HP Yamaha 2.8L I-4 engine. The boat can sit up to 3 guests. Its navigation technology includes modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems. There’s also a wireless trolling motor for a stealthy approach, and a livewell to supply you with live bait.

Captain Brandon will supply you with everything you’ll need for the trip. You’ll have rods, reels, terminal tackle, live bait, lures, as well as drinks and fishing licenses. Also, the captain can clean and fillet your catch with no extra charge. The only thing you should bring with you is some food.
