About the boat
The boat that we will be fishing from is the built from the ground up for fishability. Comfort, speed and safety went into the formula when Yellowfin Yachts laid down the design of this bay boat. The boat is 24 ft. 10 in. long and 8 ft. 6 in. wide and makes for a very stable fishing platform. Two bait wells will supply us with plenty of fresh live bait throughout the days action. The boat carries all the required U.S. Coast Guard safety gear as well as a complete first aid kit and back up communication gear. There is plenty of dry storage for your personal belongings and we’ll have plenty of cold storage on board for your refreshments and any food that you might want to bring. The boat is powered by a very dependable Mercury Verado 275HP 4Stroke outboard engine that lets us cover vast expanses of water. The Verado is known for its clean and quite running design. For your entertainment we can listen to the quite solitude of the Everglades or turn on the Sirius Satellite radio and you pick the sound track for your adventure on the water. The boat has a complete electronics package for safe navigation as well as a fish finder.
Bamboo Charters supplies you with well maintained spin, plug and fly tackle on every trip. Spin rods are built by Red Bone Rods, Biscayne Rods and Key Largo Rods. Spinning reels used are Quantum Boca reels and Diawa Whisker Series reels. Plug reels are Shimano Calcutta reels, fly reels by Billy Pate and Abel Reels. For tarpon, shark and giant jewfish we use Shimano TLD 15 and 25 series conventional reels to winch in these beasts. I prefer to use Power Pro Braid on all my reels except my conventional reels.
