Featuring a spacious fly bridge and fitted with outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger, this tournament-ready boat is ready and waiting to take you on your best day of fishing yet.

No matter if you’ve never fished before: whether you are a complete novice or an experienced angler, everyone aboard the Ballie Who will be given the attention and advice needed for an enjoyable day on the water. Whether you want to troll for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, or Blue Marlin, or bottom fish for Snappers, Groupers, and more, the experienced crew will bring you to the fish.

The use of top of the range fishing gear is included in the price of the trip, and the crew will gladly clean and fillet your catch once you return to the dock.
