The primary goal of the creator of Micro Draft was to engineer and build a skinny water skiff that provided unparalleled practical performance.
Micro Draft skiffs were born in the back country creeks of Ozello, Florida. Guide owned and operated, the creator of Micro Draft knew what he was missing by not getting into the shallowest creeks in the area. Airboat trips through the mazes of mangrove creeks along the coast provided numerous glimpses of over-sized redfish and gator trout holding, untouched in these skinny creeks and bays. Guiding from an airboat wasn’t even considered as an option. So the design and construction of the first generation of Micro Draft skiffs began.
After just a few hulls, the unique Micro Draft design was mastered. Now the Micro Draft 20 is 100% super strong and lightweight composite technology. The interior on the “Guide Ready” model has come to life with what is now a very well though out fishing skiff with all the features and rigging needed to get the job done. You can even design and layout your Micro Draft skiff completely to your own specifications if you prefer. It’s no wonder many professionals who make a living fishing the skinniest of waters already own a Micro Draft skiff. They all claim it, but we can confirm it.
