About Us

Midwest Skiff Shop? You Gotta Be Crazy…

When we opened the doors of Skinny Water Specialists to the world, we were met with both acclaim and some serious ridicule. The most notable question was “Seriously? A Skiff Shop in the Midwest? How many beers did you drink before coming up with that idea?”

A lot, is the short answer.

The longer answer is that flats style skiffs are just one of the many things we do here at Skinny Water Specialists. We’re passionate about specialty fishing craft, and flats skiffs are certainly in that category. But we’re also jet boat junkies, raft rockers, and drift boat die-hards.

If it gets us on the water and chasing fish, we’re all about it.

So drop us a note. In the end, we’re just a group of guys who are chasing the dreams that we’re passionate about: Cool boats, fishing gear, and the stories and comradery¬†that comes from every trip on the water. We may be a little crazy, but that’s alright with us.

We are Skinny Water Specialists.
