Fish Like the Pros

The unique aspects of Merica and Merrimack give our customers an experience like no other. We can troll, sight cast, and bottom fish on a much more stable platform than any other traditional fiberglass fishing boat.

 

Your fishing trip will be a true team experience. You will actively engaged in all aspects of the trip. Whether it’s holding up against a piling at the CBBT for Tautog or spades, trolling for Spanish Mackerel, Dolphin, Tuna, or Kings, or hunting Cobia and Drum, our RHIBs give you the excitement and adrenaline rush that no other boat can give you.

They call the coast of Virginia the “fish highway” due to the migration of so many species of fish. Different fish match different seasons, so there’s always something great to catch.

 

What type of fishing do you like? Bottom, drift, wrecks, casting, trolling or offshore, Patriotic Excursions can accommodate your interests and budget.
