Our very first Shake N Bake was a Bertram 35' convertible- loved that boat, but she was slow and thirsty and did not have fish boxes.
I sold her to a buddy who lost interest after a few years and she sat in her slip for 2 years until the new owners bought her in 2020.
Ken and CJ, the owners, did a FULL refit with twin 500 hp Yanmars, new hardware, all new Raymarine electronics, new shafts, rudder, and props, and a fresh paint job, and most importantly, a big, in deck fishbox and a huge bait tank.
The Honey Badger should be VERY fast, I am guessing 37 knots.
They are finishing her up soon and it will be time for a sea trial.
The Badger will be running salmon, bottom fish, and tuna charters.
She will be crewed by some familiar faces as Clark will run her early season (before he is full time on Shake N Bake) and Captain Darrel and Captain Mike P will also be running her.
The program on the badger will be the same as it is on Shake N Bake, as why mess with a good thing?
I will post up updates when I get them.
We can't wait for spring so we can get back on the water.
We quit tuna fishing a few weeks ago, but could not stay off the water.
We have been bottom fishing off Cannon beach and have not had a bad day this year.
Halloween was amazing fishing, with quick limits on a flat ocean.
As you can see in the screenshot, there are a lots of fish down there.
Next spring we are going to start running bottom fishing trips.
Stay tuned for details.
