About the Boat

My boat is a 21 ft. Shallow Sport, center console rig powered by a 175 H.P. Suzuki outboard motor. I am also using a Motorguide Trolling Motor which allows me to work the various bottom structures known to hold fish, such as sandbars, channels and cuts, reefs, etc.

What to Bring

Bring what you wish to eat or drink for the time you will be out on the water. You may bring a small ice chest of your own or I will ice your drinks for you. Other items I recommend are: Texas fishing license (required), hat, sunscreen, and polarized sunglasses. You may bring your own tackle & lures as long as it is suited for light tackle angling
