Fishing Charter FAQ

Do I Need Fishing License?
No, the boat has a license that covers everyone on board

Children?
We are fully equipped and ready for children. All Children under eight should wear a life vest all times. If you have a small vest, we recommend you bring it along.

What Do I Need To
Your desire to catch fish! We supply everything you need to fish including bait. According to your tastes, you should bring what you want to eat and drink during the trip, including plenty of fresh water, sunglasses, sunscreen, and hat if you like. Many anglers bring cameras or phone cameras. Anyone caught using any G.P.S. may cause the trip to be cancelled.

What is included in the price?
Bait, tackle, rods, reels, ice, and fishing licenses.

Can I bring my own fishing rod and tackle?
Yes. However, please make sure it is of the appropriate size and quality. Saltwater fish fight hard and your gear may not be suited to handle the fight. We will not be held responsible if your tackle fails.

Do all charter boats have restrooms?
Our Charter Boat has two private, air conditioned restrooms with real commodes.

What about Sea Sickness? Will I get sea sick?
We fish in all types of seas. If you are prone to motion sickness, you may want to take some motion sickness medication Some of our customers prefer a new medicine called Bonine and claim it is extremely effective. This is found in most drug and supermarket stores. Put a little something on your stomach before your trip but nothing heavy and greasy should be fine. Please follow the directions. Also, the patch worn behind the ear seems to work well too. You may not want to eat a big breakfast and avoid hangovers from the night before.

What Should I Wear?
Comfortable clothing for the weather taking into account our weather can change 30 degrees in a few hours. A light colored soft soled shoe is preferred like deck shoes or Crocs.

What time do I need to be at the boat dock?
It is recommended that you arrive at the dock 15 minutes before your scheduled departure.

Where will we be fishing?
Our fishing spots are located anywhere from 5 – 80 miles out and in 50 – 3000 ft. of water.

Tipping?
Yes, the deckhand(s) work for tips and fish cleaning. Tipping is customary and is usually 15-20% of your trip price. This is NOT included in the price of your trip. Our deckhands are great with children, professional, experienced and are there to help you catch fish!

Fish Cleaning?
This is .30 per whole weight pound of fish. For example if you catch 10 pounds of fish, it is $3.00 and the deckhands will fillet your fish and put them in a Ziploc for you to take home. YOU CAN’T GET ANY FRESHER AND IT’S DELICIOUS! You do not have to take your fish. Someone else will be glad to pay for the cleaning to get the fish.

What is your cancellation policy?
A 10 day cancellation notification is required in order to receive the deposit refund. Weather cancellations receive a full refund.
