The Boat

Proven back-country performance to maximize your Florida Keys fishing experience!

1997 Hewes Bayfisher 16


The 16 Bayfisher is skinny enough to pole in one foot of water but comfortable in two-foot chop.

Because of size and available space, we have a two-angler maximum capacity!

Back in the 1970’s, Bob Hewes built and pioneered the first “flats skiff” from a ski boat design.

Well, Hewes boats are now owned by the Maverick Boat Group (makers of Maverick, Pathfinder, etc) but Hewes are the boat that started it all for Back-Country Guides.
