The Hot Ticket Difference

You will notice the Hot Ticket difference right away when you give us a call and speak with Kristie who is not only very friendly but also has a superior knowledge of fishing as she herself is a tournament winning angler and a USCG Captain.  She will help you choose between the type of trips offered, what you can expect different times of the year, and make sure that you book the charter that will be the most exciting and fun for your party.

2023 Refit

In January of 2023 the old Hot Ticket was retired and replaced with a 42′ Henriques that we totally refit.   The Henriques is known as a true Battlewagon, able to handle most any sea condition and still offer a comfortable ride.   Some features you will immediately notice are Air Conditioning, bridge seating for all, a very comfortable salon with two couches able to seat everyone, a dinette, and a full screen information center to keep you informed on where we are gong and when we will be there.  For the refit we replaced the engines with twin Cummins 600HP engines.  This makes us one of the fastest charter boats around with a top speed of 40 mph.  We added new electronics, an upgraded fresh water system, new cockpit flooring and bridge flooring, and a refinished Release Marlin Chair.  As we finished with all of the boat upgrades we then turned our attention to the fishing equipment.  On the bridge we have a Greenstick, Glendinning trolling system,  and (3) 120volt led tower lights for sword fishing. We replaced all of the trolling rods and reels with top of the line 2 speed Shimano Tiagras and then purchased all new custom Live Bait fishing rods with Shimano Tiagras as well.  The outriggers were revamped with Triple lines and teaser reels installed as well.  Check out the pictures as they show it all!

Bill Kane – Captain

I have lived in this area since I was 3 years old. As a boy I was introduced to the water at an early age which quickly turned into a passion for fishing and being on the ocean. In 1994 I began charter fishing as a mate and soon became a Captain. Now much older and a tournament winning Captain, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with everyone that I get to fish with. It is my goal to make sure that your group has a great time on the water and we catch fish. Whether it is a tournament or just a fun family outing I will work diligently to find fish and use every resource I have to be in the right place at the right time. I am a true people person and I look forward to meeting you and spending a day on the water.
