My goal as Executive Director is to create the best fishing platform in the Monterey Bay to be used exclusively by those that have provided our freedom, OUR MILITARY VETERANS! The Freedom II is an amazing vessel with great potential. I will be reaching out for corporate and private sponsors to help MBV reach this goal.
Currently I have reached out to: Bass Pro Shops, Garmin, Cannon downriggers
(As i receive their responses i will publish them in a link on the bottom of this page...if you have other companies or contacts...please email me... Jefferson@mbv.org)
My "wish list":
2 Live wells...one on the front and one in the cockpit... live bait improves catch and size of catch
All new rods and reels(24-30series w/levelwind and 12-bait rods)...we need a fresh start.. all of our existing equipment is in various working condition
24 rod holders (Rail Mount)
6 downriggers for better catch rates during Salmon and Halibut season. We can troll on rough ocean days.
Update the fishfinders and navigation electronics
Small Bait freezer
trolling gear( flashers, hoochies, apex's, 12lbs balls)
16' nets and 16' gaffs
updates with photos will be posted soon
