ABOUT THE BOAT
Captain Petrila runs a 22 foot Majek Xtreme. Hand built in Corpus Christi, it is specifically designed for fishing the shallow waters of the Coastal Bend. It is a stable, dry and safe boat, equipped with the latest safety and fishing accessories, including VHF radio, GPS locator beacon, GPS navigation, blue-tooth stereo, I-pilot trolling motor and Power Pole. It also offers a huge bimini top to help anglers escape the heat. The boat is powered by a quiet and eco-friendly 2017 Suzuki 200HP, 4-stroke outboard and can accommodate up to four clients (plus the captain). Multiple boat charters also available.
