Fishing is in Dave Kveton’s blood. “I’ve fished saltwater all my life,” says Dave. “At three, my dad would take me out to Port Bolivar in boats he built. My own son mastered the rod and reel by five. In 1995, I opened El Pescador Lodge in Port O’Connor so I could spend my days doing what I love best.”But a boat ride with a friend in 1999 changed Dave’s career path. “It was the best ride I’d ever had,” says Dave. “So good in fact...I bought the company. (But don’t worry...I still find plenty of time for fishing!)”
Today El Pescador Boats offers the fastest catamaran hull (cat hull) shallow water boat in Texas. “There’s a lot of players in this space,” says Dave, “and we waited...looking at the good and the bad before we designed one ourselves. The hull is constructed with the most up-to-date composite available (no wood!) and it does it all. It runs shallow, comes up shallow, and it’s an extremely dry and comfortable ride. Even in 20-30 mph winds...you can fish. Just today I was running with my three anglers from Baffin Bay back to Flour Bluff in a northeast wind 25 mph all the way. It was a fast, smooth and dry ride with a 2 ft chop and never got a drop of water on anyone.”And these cats--favorites of professional guides, serious sports fishermen, and weekenders alike--aren’t mass produced. They’re custom built. “Come in and we can put together a design, then build to your specifications. Choose your motor. Evinrude, Mercury or Yamaha. Pick a color (or two!)...then outfit as you wish. We can do power poles, GPS, stereo and trolling motors.” Have a new idea? “Show it to us and if it works...we’ll build it.”
