Captain Justin fishes on a 25 foot Robalo 246 Cayman. Powered by a powerful and quite 300HP Yamaha 4 stroke engine. This boat has the skinny draft needed to get back in the shallows and backwaters to find hungry fish. The boat also has an 8 foot beam which allows for a comfortable and dry ride to the near shore wrecks and reefs that lie from 2 to 20 miles off shore. His 2020 boat has the latest technology including the newest GPS and Sonar on the market to find the fish quickly and safely. It is also equipped with an iPilot GPS trolling motor and 10 foot Power Pole anchor. this allows him to get to the trickiest parts of the mangroves and back water and hold position while you fish in comfort.
For Shelling and tours , the boat has comfortable seating for up to 4 people with cushions (if requested), coolers and cup holders to make the trip to your deserted island for shelling or fishing spot smooth and comfortable.
