New Beavertail Micro On Pine Island This Weekend

"It followed me home, Mom!  Can I keep it?"

My friends Will and Liz up at Beavertail in Palmetto, FL have loaned me one of their latest 2014 Micro skiffs and I have it here on Pine Island to hit some of our negative-low flats for tailing reds and then show it off a bit.  I'll be at Cape Tool and Tackle's annual open house and pig roast on Saturday, the 14th starting at 10AM.  This is a really fun event thrown by one of the best bait and tackle shops in the area and located at 405 NE Pine Island Road in Cape Coral.  There will several different seminars by local captains and some good deals in the tackle shop but the $5 plate of wild hog is more than worth the trip.

We unfortunately had to scrap plans to hold a full Demo Day on Matlacha this Sunday since Will and Liz are swamped with boat orders that need finished by New Years.  Their crew is practically living at the shop these days.  They also have two brand new Beavertail models in the works that will hopefully debut at the Miami Boat Show in Feb.  I can't tell you much about them yet but when these two boats join the lineup in 2014 Beavertail will be the King Of The Hill as far as the inshore market is concerned.
