The Little Nine is a 16 foot Hells Bay flats skiff. This rig allows us to pole in less than 6 inches of water to get to the fish you want to catch. It is powered by a Mercury 4 stoke 40 hp motor than makes plenty of clean and quiet power. This really is the only way to explore the skinny water of the Florida Keys. There is room for two anglers plus Captain Eklund.
