We had great weather , a great Captain and first mate. We caught over 5 species and brought about 25 fish to the dock. We also threw back about 30 Grunts which were great eating. Then, we went to the Salt Cracker restaurant where they prepared our fish for us . We chose blackened and fried along with cole slaw and fries. What a great experience for a Father & Son.
The Experts in RIB Retubing
We service and sell all major inflatable boats & outboard motors
Rigid Inflatable Boat care
Particularly in the hot Florida sun, your RIB or other inflatable takes a merciless beating winter or summer unless you’re able to keep it inside in the cool shade of an air conditioned garage - yeah, right! Most RIBs we know hang on their own davits or reside in a cradle on deck most of the time, just being there until they’re slipped into the water and used for a few hours at a time. A full cover is a step in the right direction toward protecting your RIB. Custom chaps are also well worth the investment. The bottom line is that your RIB or other inflatable can give you good service for a lot of years provided you take the time to give it a fighting chance. Our experience has been, unfortunately, that some owners don’t give their tenders that chance, and we have to step in and reverse the ravages that Mother Nature has inflicted.
Your Rigid Inflatable Boat should last a long time… we can help make that happen!
What they say about us
We took an 8 hour trip with Captain Kevin and first mate Peyton this week and it was unbelievable. They were so attentive, friendly and helpful along with constantly having us on fish! We caught well over 120 fish with 3 people. I could not recommend them more. They’re extremely hardworking and all over every request. For an amazing fishing experience, book Kevin & Peyton. You will be thrilled!
By the way, have their restaurant Saltcracker Fish Camp cook your catch for dinner. It was great!
