The Guide Advantage

The Guide™ was built at the request of many guides and anglers who wanted everything in one package. This skiff has exceptionally shallow draft, excellent stability at anchor, and poles with ease in any flats fishing situation. First becoming a Texas coast favorite, the Guide™ with the patented tunnel hull option, allows anglers to jump up on plane over a hard sand bottom in 8" and run on plane in 5". This feature permits anglers to silently pursue fish from the boat in areas where wade fishing was the only option.
