“Occupational Hazard”


Made for a specific use, this shallow running machine was purchased with your fishing adventutes in mind. Perfect for the hard core angler or the purist that prefer to stalk with plastics and fool fish. Often I will meet my clients for the day at a small boat ramp just of the protected Little Manatee River, Down in Bradenton at PalmaSola Bay, downtown Saftey Harbour , Downtown Tampa or down in Englewood Fl and fish the back waters of Charlotte harbor. Often only seeing open water in a glimpse as we make our way deep into the bayou’s and bights of these estuaries.



Fishing Charters

Settling down into  depressions and large potholes we begin our assault in the back country with artificials. The arsenal consists of various colors of spoons, shad tails and dart type baits. Often when instructing on the different techniques I will stick a fish.  This kind of fishing is more of a hunt and stalk not a chum and cast. My skiff the “Occupational Hazard” is 20 ft long, can run for a half a mile in less than 6  inches of water with 3 people aboard. She can fish 3 comfortably with artificials. Often times clients only have a one day window to fish and as long as the conditions are safe they want to go. The skiff allows access to protected waters. Even with a north wind cranking out 15 knot plus winds we can still get on the fish  in the back country.
