"The Gaff" is a comfortable 36 ft Luhrs express equipped with twin diesel Yanmar engines and a diesel generator. This boat reaches a cruising speed of 30 knots which gets us out to the fishing spots much faster than most boats. The Gaff also boasts a very comfortable air conditioned downstairs cabin with couches, a table, refrigerator, stove, microwave, full size bathroom that includes a commode and a shower for over night trips. The Gaff has enough room to sleep up to 5 people comfortably.
The owner of the Gaff is a well known local and trusted fisherman, Joey Johnson. Joey has worked over a decade to achieve his dream of owning a charter boat. As a teen, Joey was a deck hand for several different boats which only fueled his love for fishing. In 2013 Joey started a job on a Navy research vessel and was focused on furthering his license. In the spring of 2017 Joey pursued a new job as a part of the crew for Great Lakes Dredge and Dock as an able-body seaman. As he obtained his 3rd Mates Unlimited license, he moved to a drag tender position.
2014 was an eventful year for Joey as he married his beautiful wife Alainna Johnson and also got to witness his son Riley Johnson being brought into the world. In 2017 his sweet daughter joined the family of Johnson's. Joey is a hard working man that knows how important his family is and that his goals in life are reachable as long as he sets his mind to it.
