Andy fishes from a custom 29-foot heavy-gauge aluminum offshore charter boat. It can fish up to six anglers with comfortable seating, a marine toilet, and an enclosed cabin. Powered by twin 150-horsepower Mercury outboards, it is one of the fastest charter boats in the fleet. The boat is equipped with a self-inflating life raft, radar and GPS, and other safety equipment. The Miss Brooke can reach speeds of 40 knots.
The Miss Brooke features the latest high-quality light tackle, with Penn spinning rods for rockfish, heavier Penn baitcasters for lingcod, and G.Loomis rods and Shimano Tekota reels for salmon trolling. The boat also is equipped with electric Scotty downriggers.
The Miss Brooke is one of the only six-pack charter boat in Brookings designed specifically for guided sportfishing. It is the same type of boat Andy operated as a charter boat in Alaska for nearly 10 years. The Miss Brooke is an efficient and effective fishing platform, it was engineered to be safe, stable and fast.
