Zach Lewis took delivery of MGFC’s newest 37ft Freeman Boatworks catamaran last week. So far, the boat has run three trips, and it’s turning heads all across the Southeast.

We ran an online contest asking fans and followers to chime in when they saw the vessel in transit from the Freeman facility in South Carolina to it’s MGFC home at Venice Marina. People sure do love these 37ft Freeman boats. How much? Well, if our numbers are any indication — tons (and that’s a technical term)!

Huk Gear made a big splash into Louisiana recently when it signed on as a sponsor of the Mexican Gulf Fishing Company.

It’s most visible entry includes full sidewall boat wraps on the f/v Pale Horse (captained by Kevin Beach), and the f/v Wild Bill (captained by Billy Wells and Colin Byrd). Both boats, 37-foot Freeman Boatworks catamarans, we’re emblazoned with Huk’s camo background, offshore game fish illustrations, and branding marks for Huk, MGFC and Freeman.

Drew Herma, of Huk Gear / Marolina, says, “the thing about Huk is that we design clothing for anglers by anglers. Whether it’s fly fishing in Montana or being out on the Gulf with the Captains at MGFC, Huk wants to be where fishermen are. Everyone within Huk is part of the fishing community. All of our team is passionate about fishing. We built a brand of high performance outdoor gear, designed specifically for the needs of the fishing community.”

Huk has managed to turn clothing into gear. Its line of high performance, anti microbial, moisture wicking and stain resistant clothing is soon to be a fisherman’s best friend. It already is for MGFC.

There are plenty fluorocarbon brands available, but the captains at MGFC use Seaguar fluorocarbon — because it’s the best on the market. Best on the market means it’s the only fluorocarbon on our boats.

MGFC prides itself on making the best gear available to its offshore charter fishing customers. From Seaguar fluorocarbons to Shimano rods and reels, the MGFC makes sure you’re fishing with the best from end-to-end.

If it’s yellowfin tuna you’re after, you really want to be using Seaguar fluorocarbon. Same goes when you’re bottom fishing for snapper, and it’s especially true when you’re after swordfish and marlin.
