The 21’ Skeeter bay boat is outfitted with all of the latest electronics and gear to streamline the fishing process. Less time getting there, more time fishing there. From the wireless GPS trolling motor with spot-lock technology, to twin PowerPole shallow water anchors, no expense was spared in designing the perfect fishing boat to accommodate up to 3 anglers.

Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, fishing licenses, live bait, and lures. You will be provided with bottled water so you can feel free to bring your own snacks with you. The Captain will clean and fillet your fish once it caught so you will be able to take it home with you to eat later or just fill the freezer.
