My Boats


1971 Custom 24' Proline

I am very proud of this boat.  I built it with my own hands.

One of the largest flats boats in our area, that will comfortably fish up to 4 anglers. With a full crew she draws less than 12" of water.

Powered by a 2017 150hp Yamaha four stroke.  Smooth dry ride in any sea conditions we might encounter.

I use this boat for most of my tarpon fishing in the Boca Grande/Charlotte Harbor area.



Silver King 16

Traditional backcountry skiff, custom built for taking up to 2 anglers deep in the backcountry.

Powered by a 90hp Evinrude E-tec.

The ultimate fly fishing and sight casting skiff.  I had it custom built for me back in 1992.  The perfect boat for fishing the backcountry of Charlotte Harbor and the Florida Everglades.


Both of my boats are equipped with the finest in marine electronics, shallow water anchors and trolling motors by:
