Frequently Asked Questions 

Information you may find helpful in choosing your Fishing Trip with Us

What to Bring Onboard?

Hat – Best Hats for spotting fish have dark underside on the bills to reduce reflection.

Sunscreen – Clothing and Lotions for Florida Sunshine.  No aerosol sunscreens please (they make the boat deck slippery)

Non-Skid Shoes – Boat shoes that will not mark up the floor, please.

Polarized Sunglasses – Sunglasses do not have to be expensive, but they do need to be polarized and comfortable, they help see the fish.

Food and Beverages – You will put your items in the cooler located on the boat. Do not bring a separate cooler for food.

What Is Provided?

We provide everything needed for fishing including rods & reels, tackle, bait and ice.  Your Florida Saltwater Fishing license is also provided for the day(s) of the trip. We will clean your fish and bag them at the boat ramp (NOTE: Some public ramps to not provide or allow fish cleaning on site, we will however transport your fish to a facility nearby and gladly clean them for you)

This is a private charter and we do not combine parties.  The price of the Charter is for the Boat and not on an individual basis.

Our boats are designed for performance and each boat has individual requirements.  While we are licensed for more, we recommend no more than three people on our inshore boat and no more than four for our deep sea fishing boat.  If you have additional questions please call or read more about about overcrowding a fishing boat.
