From Captain Mike’s “Osprey” to Captain Kirk’s 16′ drift boat, we’ve got you covered for every fishing & touring occasion!
Captain Mike's "Osprey"
The “Osprey” is a 24′ 2018 Weldcraft Maverick actually measures 28 feet. She floats a 300 horsepower Suzuki outboard that’ll reliably whisk your group to the fish. The Captain has personally outfitted his boat with many of the latest higher end pieces of fishing equipment, starting at the bow.
There is a 36 volt 72 inch shaft self deploying Minnkota Riptide Ulterra to lock you over the fish when the technique for getting the fish requires vertical jigging. A 15hp Honda high thrust “kicker” motor outfitted with the latest Garmin autopilot system having a wireless digital remote with throttle control as well as control from the fishfinder display, will accurately keep speed and direction while trolling. A Garmin Panoptix LiveSight mounted to a custom panning system for seeing fish in 360 degrees on live sonar! Two Cisco Fishing Systems electric planer board reels, and 4 Cannon TS 10 Digi-Troll downriggers. Two Lowrance HDS Carbon fish finder units on board loaded with the latest Navionics maps. They accurately mark the fish with high resolution side and down imaging with Fish Reveal software and Chirp Sonar. Lowrance Halo 20+ Radar. The HDS 12, and HDS 9 Carbons, bluetooth capable Lowrance Sonic Hub2 Sound system, the Lowrance Link 8 VHF marine radio, and all the engine information coming from the Suzuki are all networked.
The captains and co-captains chairs are fully adjustable and shock absorbed. The two 4 foot bench seats give plenty of comfortable seating for everyone else. A clean vessel that keeps your group warm, dry, comfortable and at ease when enjoying a fishing excursion on beautiful Flathead lake
