Background
I grew up fishing in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. As a small child, I would go out with my Dad who was a commercial fisherman. “The warm, emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico slip into the deep, cobalt blue waters. This often occurs within a very close proximity to shore. Year round fishing is excellent!” We specialize in catching big fish with light tackle. Come take my boat out for a visit with the big ones!
Techniques
I prefer the newest, most modern light tackle Shimano has to offer. There is nothing like catching a large AJ or Grouper on light tackle. Whether taking the experienced angler or the novice we have something to offer for everyone. Bass boat quality tackle produces consistently awesome results.
