Boat & Gear


"Off The Hook II"

Trojan International 10 Meter Express 37' LOA
Manufactured by Bertram Yachts: "Feel the Ride, Live the Legend"
"The Great Lakes battle wagon"

A 37' LOA, 10-meter Trojan International Express: Sportfishing's ultimate platform. There is no better designed boat to experience what Lake Ontario has to offer. Step on Board Off The Hook II and you'll immediately notice its massive 13.3-beam. Not only does this make it comfortable, but also it gives the boat the ability to handle pretty much whatever the lake has to dish out plus the stability of smooth trolling all day long.
