Boats and Equipment
Professional guide Mario Gomez fishes from clean custom designed heated Willie Drift boats, using top of the line G.Loomis IMX fishing rods, and Shimano reels.
The boats and equipment utilized by Ironhead Guide Service is some of the best in the industry. Pro guide Mario Gomez is fortunate enough to be professional affiliates and sponsored by the innovative gear and equipment leaders of the fishing industry. Thus allowing the customers of Ironhead Guide Service to experience a comfortable day on the water fishing out of river Cadillac’s using the best rods and reels on the market to aid in their angling success. Ironhead Guide Service has two custom Willie drift boats that were hand designed and ordered by Mario.
The newest boat to join the fleet is a gorgeous 2015 18′ long x 60″ wide fish catching machine. This boat came to the company fully loaded with all of the bells and whistles and the sales manager at Willie boats told Mario, this is one of the most luxurious boats they have built for a California/Oregon guide. The boat was designed to be able to target all species using all techniques. This transformer boat easily switches from a conventional to a fly fishing boat, it has level floors, a heater/pizza oven, plush captain’s chairs, and a front and rear casting brace.
The original fish slaying machine is another custom ordered 2005 17′ long x 54″ wide Willie drift boat that was ordered with durability in mind. The boat came with a camo paint job that is similar to Rhino lining and can tame the rivers on low water years. The O.G. also came with a heater/pizza oven, rod holders, fish box, and plush captain’s chairs. This tank of a fishing craft was the pioneer boat for pro guide Mario Gomez and has seen many river and fish in California and Oregon.
