Capt. Damon runs a 26ft. Barker Open Bay Boat powered with a Mercury 400 h.p. Verado Four-Stroke.
Capt. Damon started Super Strike Charters in 1997. He runs both offshore and inshore charters.
The boat he run inshore is a fully equipped 26ft. Open Bay Boat. The boat is very fast and is extremely versatile for fishing our area. The electronics on the boat include Radar, Depth/Fish Finder, AIS, and Satellite Weather. The Yellowfin has twin 10ft. Power Poles as well as a Minn-Kota iPilot with remote. This boat can easily fish up to 3 people, but we can take 4. The decks are huge and have plenty of room for conventional tackle or fly fishing. Most days the ride to the fishing location is flat calm, however crossing some of the bays and the Mississippi River can get choppy and this boat easily runs thru it, and stays dry.
Some of the best fishing in the Venice area is in shallow water, the boats we run are able to access just about any pond (1.5ft. or deeper) or canal where red fish live and feed. On the days that the Islands are producing trout, then this boat can run there no problem through open water most days. The boat also has Two live-wells, and one aerated well with recirc. to keep any live bait healthy and active. The fish box is huge and well insulated to keep all of your fish cold, even the hottest days.
