The Praying Mantis is a 26-foot Steiger Craft fully-equipped with the latest electronic and fishing gear, located on the Little Salmon River in Mexico Bay of Lake Ontario, New York. Rumored to be the fastest boat of its kind on Lake Ontario, the Praying Mantis will allow you to get to the fish quickly and make the most of your time on the water.
