You will be fishing out of a 23" Sea Pro center console bay boat. Capt_Shawnetsonbateau_640

It's a good, safe, roomy boat.The Sea Pro is powered by a Yamaha 250 four stroke engine. It runs fine and Captain Shawn gets a lot of compliments on his boat. The Sea Pro is equipped with a 113 LB Minn Kota trolling Motor, Lowrance depth finder, Garmin GPS, marine radio and Furuno radar. 2 Power Pole to keep us steady.


Capt. Shawn does not use worn out- beat up equipment.
He uses Shimano Stradic 5000 reels with 7' Kisler Custom Fishing Rods. These rods and reels are of good quality. You are welcome to bring your own rods and reels if you like. He also supplies all of the artificial lures you will be using.

If you want to use live bait, we can make arrangements to buy it at market price and it will be added to your total. Live shrimp does help catch keeper fish, particularly Speckled Sea Trout. But it does not help catch Bull Redfish.

All our Venice Louisiana Fishing Guides or Fishing Charters are experienced, USCG licensed and operate with up to par boats and equipment. 

Visit: to find great bait and tackle and to find quality rods.
