We’re proud to have Simrad as one of our sponsors, and we’re beyond delighted to use Simrad’s gear on our boats at Mexican Gulf Fishing.
Fog has been thick recently while heading out to open water from Venice, LA, but Simrad’s 4G Dual band radar has been a workhorse.
We had another foggy day on Monday and it really let the Simrad 4G dual range / split screen radar shine. We got off shore quickly, and more importantly safely. After that, … the wahoo made me look like I knew what the heck I was doing. Weird how that happens! I’ll take partial credit, mother nature gets partial credit, and Simrad get’s a lion’s share. Without this tool in our chests, we wouldn’t be as reliable a charter fishing company.
Simrad is a sponsor of MGFC. We use their gear on all out boats. Wouldn’t hit the water without them.
In my view, 4G is a significant upgrade from its 3G successor, and Simrad has done a great job with this unit. It has more power, better range, and better resolution than previous models we’ve used.
Broadband 4G Radar offers all of the benefits of the Broadband 3G, including a 200′ working range, plus some spectacular extra features. 4G has 50 percent more range than 3G, and we can see targets — crystal clear — up to 36nm away.
Thanks, Simrad … another successful MGFC charter trip made possible by your technology.
Oh yeah, about those wahoo? I think our customers agree, too. See for yourself, and let us know what you think.
You saw it on the drawing board, and you saw it at the Miami Boat Show. It caught your eye riding on the Interstate from Florida to Louisiana, and this week ahead, … it makes its debut as the newest Freeman in our fleet of Freeman’s at The Mexican Gulf Fishing Company — a 42 foot Freeman Boatworks masterpiece.
Offshore Venice — is off to a good start in 2017. We’re seeing monster yellowfin tuna, plenty of blackfin tuna, wahoo of great size, and temps (water and air) that you just won’t believe.
“It’s been wild,” says Captain Wade Wells. “We’re seeing really nice temps making for some nice warm days. It’s bringing in the fish, too,” said Wade.
Captain Jordan Ellis agrees. “I’ve put customers on yellowfin and wahoo and we’re surprised at the size of both species. The ambient temps are great, and the water temps running a bit higher than normal too. It’s been a fun start to the new year. Looks to me like Spring is gonna be awesome.”
Justin Rackley, known as Lakeforkguy, creates fishing videos on youtube and other social platforms. Lakeforkguy travels to freshwater and saltwater fishing spots to explore new fish species and fishing techniques to show as many fishing places as possible and help viewers catch more fish, and recently he wanted to make a yellowfin tuna video.
