Rates & Services
My boat is a comfortable 17 ft Tracker with all safety equipment, padded seats and windshield. I provide life jackets, tackle, bait, a cooler of drinks and I clean and bag the fish, ready for you to cook or to freeze. Boat gas is included too.
I can take 2 adults or 1 adult and up to 2 kids in my boat comfortably. For larger parties, you can rent a pontoon boat from the Villages Marina (903) 561-1413 and I will provide all my usual services and equipment. These boats will take up to 9 adults and are about $250, with gas and tax, for 4 hours, separate from my fee. You are always welcome to bring and use your own tackle.
