Boats in our fleet will differ based on species and really the area fishing. A Florida Keys flats guide will specialize in sight-fishing the flats will typically use a smaller 16 or 17′ backcountry boat that can only hold 1 or maybe 2 people.
In other areas like New Smyrna, where they catch big Redfish they will use a bay boat that may be up to 22′ long and hold up to 4 people. And if your desired species of fish include tarpon, redfish, bonefish, and other any shallow-water species, you need shallow running boat-like flats.
