Serious flats fishing anglers are often curious about what type of tackle is supplied on my fishing charters. I believe having quality equipment makes the fishing experience more enjoyable and results in more fish being caught. You will never find poorly maintained, cheap, or corroded equipment on my boat. Below is a description of the tackle I use.
For my light tackle sight fishing charters, I supply 7.6" Falcon Coastal Medium Gulf Spin Rods. These rods are lightweight and are soft enough to cast light lures long distances yet strong enough to handle fish over 20 pounds. I also carry 7.4" Shimano Terramar TMS F74M Spinning rods to use when specifically targeting giant redfish and when bait fishing.
My Falcon rods are paired with Daiwa Procyon 2500 spinning reels. Each reel is fully spooled with 10 pound braided fishing line. The Shimano rods have Daiwa Exceler reels filled with 15 pound braided line. These reels are in like new condition. You will not find any squeaky, grinding, or half spooled reels on my charters.
On your sight fishing trip, you will be supplied with a variety of DOA fishing lures. From the popular and original 3" shrimp, to the CAL series, there are a wide range of styles and color available on the boat at all times.
I supply 5, 7,or 9 weight flyrods from Sage and Hardy for all fly fishing trips when requested. The rods are paired with Sage, Greys, and Reddington reels along with Rio flylines. All flies are included in the cost of the fishing charter and have all been hand tied by me.
