Bonita BR Pontoon rentalThe pontoon boats are setup for fishing and typically there will be four fishermen per boat. We have as few as two boats going out on a given day and have had as many as eight boats rented.

If you would like to join, all you have to do is contact Tom Heaton and leave your name and the name of any other members or guests that will be joining you. It is essential to commit ahead of time to enable Tom to make the correct arrangements for the number of boats as well as the quantity shrimp needed.
