Captain Steve guides on his new 2023 Dek Kat 2700 built here locally in Cross City Fl. This 27 foot flats boat has comfortable seating for six guests and has room enough for all to fish. The large forward fishing deck can accomodate three to four anglers. With a nine foot beam it is exceptionally stable so there is no need to worry about having your sea legs. Despite being a large 27 foot boat she is a shallow water fishing machine with a draft of less than 10 inches. This boat can get to the waters where the fish are hiding. The helm is on a tower allowing the captain to spot fish and guide you to them to maximize your fishing success.
It is equipped with a 65 quart cooler that will handle all your food and drinks and has plenty of storage room for all of your gear. The new Suzuki 300 hp motor makes cruising at 35 to 40 mph fuel efficient and making it possible to reach different locations quickly and with a great smooth and dry ride.
The equipment Captain Steve uses is all quality gear. Falcon fishing rods and Daiwa Procyon reels coupled with a quality braided line will make catching the fish much easier. Fishing in Steinhatchee is dominated by the use of artifical lures. Captain Steve has a full arsenal of fish catching lures ready for use including Mirrorlure, Yozuri, Live Target, and Heddon. He also carries a wide variety of solf plastic lures which are equally effective in the right conditions. Rest assured, you will never be short of lures to use. On those occassions where live bait is most effective there is a large live well to keep them alive and fresh all day. There is also additional storage for caught fish destined for the fillet table so no need to add them to the drink cooler.
