The SHARK SIX is a 28-foot Whitewater center console that was custom-built for us in Miami in 2008. A clean, quiet, 300 hp Suzuki four-stroke V-6 outboard provides a cruise speed of 29 mph and a top-end of 40 mph. The boat features a large t-top for protection against sun and rain, a full-height windshield, and is equipped with all required Coast Guard safety gear. Electronics include a Garmin 4212 radar/color chartplotter, Furuno FCV-585 color LCD fishfinder with 1kW transducer, two VHF radios, cell phone, and satellite phone. There is a large above-deck bait well in the stern with viewing window, upholstered seating, plenty of dry storage for jackets, cameras and the like, and a private, push-button electric head (toilet) within the console.
All tackle is provided, and ours is top-shelf and impeccably maintained - Shakespeare Ugly Stik Lite rods with Shakespeare, Shimano, and Okuma Corondao reels loaded with fresh Bagley Excalibur or Sufix Elite monofilament line. We have plenty of light 12-pound and 17-pound class spinning outfits for live- and chunk-baiting, topwater plugging, and working soft-plastic artificials for striped bass We also have light 12-pound plug-casting gear as well as trolling tackle, including lead-core outfits, for those that enjoy these types of fishing. Feel free to bring a fly rod- recommended is a nine or ten-weight outfit - and we have a good selection of the hottest striper flies that you are welcome to use. For school bluefin tuna we have 50-pound Shimano stand-up outfits, as well as 30-pound Daiwa/St. Croix and Shakespeare spinning combos for casting jigs.
