THE BOAT
Dock Holiday
The boat is licensed for a maximum number of six, which it can accommodate very well. There is plenty of room for all to fish, sit, sight see from the bridge and enjoy the air-conditioned salon. It is a very dependable and comfortable boat for fishing the open ocean.

We supply everything you need to fish the ice, bait, tackle and gear and deck hand to help you land the fish.
The Dock Holiday is a 42 foot Bertram powered by twin 540 horsepower Detroit Diesels, cruising her at a crisp 23.5 knots (about 26.6 miles per hour). This means we get you to the fish faster than anyone in the fleet.

Dock Holiday is also equipped with a 12kw Kuboda PowerTech generator which provides plenty of electricity to power everything on the boat.

THE CAPTAIN
Michael Walker
I've been fishing all my life, ever since I can remember, from three years old on my grandfather's boat fishing for crappie, bass and catfish in his lake to flounder gigging on my dad's boat in Port O'Conner, TX. Fishing is not just my job, it's my passion.

After serving four honorable years and sailing around the Pacific and Indian Oceans in the U.S. Navy, I landed my first job deep-sea fishing while I was in college as a deckhand on a party/head boat, the Kingfisher in Port Aransas, TX. I moved over to private charter and sportfishing boats after a couple of years and eventually got my Captain's license (100 ton Master).

I lived and worked in Port Aransas for 5 years and my first boss there helped me get my first full time job as a Captain here in South Padre Island and Port Isabel.

I've fished all over the Gulf of Mexico from Tampico, Mexico to Venice, Louisiana as well as Hawaii, the Pacific coast of Mexico and Costa Rica. I also fish in several tournaments including the prestigious invitational, Poco Bueno out of Port O'Conner, TIFT and the LKT here in South Padre and a few more up the coast.
