A wild ride with the “Yellow Beast”

It’s early. The Bayport pier has a few fishing enthusiasts. As the sun rises she has arrived in all her glory. People on the pier stop and gasp for a look at her. She’s perfect. She’s 19 feet long, and she’s Standout Yellow. She is the yellow beast!

Her riders anxiously await to board. Quietly lowered into the Gulf water, a 450 raw horsepower (HP) levitation motor waits to be cranked to the thrill of the 6 passengers ready to board after a few instructions from Captain Ozzie Winchester for a ride on the wild side of inland Bayport.
Why the ear muffs you ask? Protection.

Captain Ozzie, with the turn of a switch, brings to life the 450 HP Yellow Beast with a deafening roar. Trust me, you’ll thank The Captain for the “ear muffs.” With her powerful engine humming quite loudly, the ready-to-go “YB” heads for waters unreachable with a regular boat. Skipping over land, marsh, and seaweed into open backwaters gives one a new perspective about what our Central Coast of Florida is and why it’s called the Nature Coast.

Captain Ozzie stops at one of several deep hole fishing spots he has discovered. These fishing locations are a secret, so shhhh!
We cast a light fishing line (the only type to use), and the quest for a trophy begins. Captain Ozzie has been on and around these waters since a Kid. “ I always wanted to help people enjoy these secretive backwaters, said the Captain. “Why should we have to travel north or south of Hernando County when we have the adventures here?” he added. Don’t take my word for it, call the Captain! 352-200-1960.
