Backwoods Catfishing Guide Service

The Catfish Cadillac


We wasn’t overselling this beast. Meet the SeaArk Procat 240 aka The Catfish Cadillac! Coming in at 25ft bow to prop. With a 250 Suzuki 4 stroke she purrs like a kitten but don’t let it fool you. It’s capable of speeds up to 55MPH to get from spot to spot and not waste time! Want to take home some eating size fish? The onboard 80gallon live well will keep them as fresh as possible.

Fishing in comfort

It’s not only big and fast but extremely comfortable. You’ll forget you’re in the elements. It’s equipped with a fully sealed cabin enclosure to shield you from all elements. It’s just like riding in a car. For those colder days on the lake she also has a fully integrated thermostat heating system with swivel vents powered by a kerosene blower. You won’t realize it’s 20°F outside when the cabin is 70°F.

The Catfish Cadillac

The front platform is large, so feel free to stretch out! Catch some rays, read a book, and enjoy the beautiful landscape north Alabama offers. Better yet bring some friends to share the slime!

Fishing Technology

It utilizes a massive 16″ touch screen Humminbird Apex to locate those big cats no matter how hard they try to hide. We have full GPS control of the vessel using the 36V 112lb thrust minn Kota ulterra trolling motor on the bow. It communicates with the Apex 16 head unit and GPS satellites to drive itself while dragging. Yes I said DRIVE IT SELF. One button touch activates spot lock. That triangulates satellites keeping you within 1ft of where the captain tells the boat to stay at. That frees up the captain to help you get that hog into the boat.

Our Gear!

For the gear we are utilizing Big Cat Fever rods paired with Penn reels and Slime line Hi Vis mono fishing line. No one will miss the bite. For our terminal tackle, we trust Dale’s Tackle products to land them. Including the Beefy/ultra sharp 12/0 hooks. With Monster rod holders all the way around the boat. That will prevent anyone from loosing a rod when the next 100lb catfish hits. When it’s time to use planer boards, we break out the Spread Em’ Boards and Dirty South Dragging Weights. That will get those baits really spread out to cover a ton of water fast!
