The Boats and Equipment
The Aboard Fishing Fleet consists of boats that are well maintained and are in like new condition. All of the boats in our fleet have the latest safety equipment, sophisticated electronics, top quality fishing gear and a head (rest room). As you look at each boat in our fleet you will be impressed by their quality as well as the equipment on board.
We have a number of different rods and reels available for every trip so we can match the tackle to whatever we are catching. When we are fishing for very large fish we use Penn 30 pound class reels and custom rods. The trolling reels we use most frequently are Shimano TLD 20's (20-pound test line) mounted on custom rods. Our medium weight (20 pound) spin tackle consists of Shimano Spin reels mounted on custom spin rods. Our light weigh (12 pound) spin tackle is generally Shimano 3500 Baitrunners on 12 pound class rods. When we go fishing we have the right tackle to catch fish and to provide you with a quality fishing experience!
We have a wide range of rods and reels as well as terminal tackle to use while we are fishing. When you get aboard any of the boats in our fleet you will quickly realize that the crew has spent a lot of preparation time and has paid attention to the details to ensure your fishing trip will be as productive as possible.
