We fish from a 2014 Nitro Z7 dual console bass boat. The boat has a 150 hp Mercury Optimax motor, two depth finders, a 24 volt trolling motor, a cooler, comfortable seating and large, aerated live wells. The boat is inspected as a "Public Vessel" by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

We provide high quality graphite rods equipped with Shimano Curado baitcasting reels (right and left hand available) and Shimano Sahara or Pfleuger President spinning reels. We carry a wide range of lures - soft plastics, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, jigs, tubes, topwater baits, etc.
