His 22.4 foot Blackjack Bay boat has been called one of the most modern, sleekest, fastest, safest and dependable fishing vessels on the water.
Powered by a 300-hp Mercury V8, guests will enjoy a quiet, comfortable and dry ride down the bayous and across the lower coastal bays. The Blackjack is equipped with everything one could imagine including two ten-foot power poles; dual aerated live wells at each end.

Every charter with Donewar's Saltwater Guide Service is an all-inclusive trip. What you will not get are any "surprise charges" when you return home.
