SPONSOR SHOUTOUT: Penn Fishing

January 11th, 2022|Capt Art's Blog|

We are fortunate to have Penn Fishing and pro-staffer Steve Carson as sponsors of Searcher Sportfishing. Penn Fathom reels are the “work horses” of our loaner tackle arsenal. Make sure to let the land crew know when you book if you’d like to use our loaner gear.

Anglers who fish with Steve Carson know that his knowledge about saltwater fishing tackle is almost limitless! But he is also just a great person to fish and share the rail with.
