Deep sea charter fishing requires the best in fishing equipment that money can buy. Our commitment to excellence is why the charter boat Back Down 2 uses Daiwa Saltega and Saltist rods and reels for our anglers. We use the best power pro and monofilament on the market. Our offshore Equipment includes Diawa, Tiagra, and Fin-Nor reels and custom built rods. We use stand up tuna fishing belts and for offshore tournaments we have an international tuna chair. As a field trial rep for Diawa saltwater tackle fishing here out of Destin Florida we always have new and innovative tackle onboard. And for the more experienced saltwater fisherman who has his own fishing equipment, we always encourage you to bring your own fishing gear. There is nothing better than catching a big tuna or red snapper on your own personal fishing gear on a deep sea fishing trip aboard the Back Down 2.
