Capt. Travis Mayeux had a helluva first day as a full Captain with the MGFC.

Fishing in rough seas from The Sweat Shop, his 33-ft Freeman catamaran, Mayeux had a five-person group on a charter approximately 50 miles offshore from Venice, LA. He was fishing along side Capt. Kevin Beach and his charter on The Pale Horse, when Beach yelled out, “We just had a Blue swim right past us.”

Thank you Freeman Boatworks! That’s all I can say.

Well, actually, there’s a lot more I could say about this boat like:

  • it’s a game changer
  • it’s the best boat i’ve ever owned
  • it’s fast, roomy, and purpose built for blue water fishing
  • you’re gonna love it

MGFC is now officially running the Pale Horse as a 37-ft catamaran designed and built by Freeman Boatworks. The 37ft Freeman is now in Venice, LA.

“The 37-foot Freemans use our state of the art Vented Hull technology ,” says Billy Freeman. “This boat sets the new standard for offshore fishing in terms of speed, comfort, and fish-ability for boats 36 to 40 feet.”

“The huge cockpit provides excessive room for a team of fisherman to bring in a tournament winning catch and fuel economy dominates boats in its class.”

Freeman met with Mexican Gulf and many of it’s other customers at this year’s Boat Show in Miami where the company showcased it’s lineup.
