General Information

What you need to bring:

  • Warm clothes - dress in layers - the mornings are usually cool, but as the sun warms the afternoon air, you will be more comfortable if you can adjust your wardrobe.
  • Rain gear - not every day is perfect, a poncho or rain coat might come in handy.
  • A camera to capture the moment!
  • A wide brim cap and sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes - polarized lenses are recommended.
  • Sunscreen - sunburns happen very easily as the water reflects a large amount of the sun's energy onto you.
  • Motion sickness medication - if you are prone to motion sickness, you should prepare prior to leaving the dock. There are numerous remedies that work. Find one that easy for you, and use it. ( Inshore trips tend to be easier than offshore.)
  • Other Medication - if you are on any medications that must be taken while on the boat, you will need to bring them.
  • Lunch - if you are spending the day with us you may want to bring a lunch. We provide cold water and sodas along with snacks.
  • A cooler- if you decide to bring home your catch, you will want a cooler in your car to transport your meat. Coolers are available on the boat.
  • Boat shoes or sneakers - please, no shoes with black soles.
  • Illegal drugs and hard licquor are absolutely not allowed.

What we provide:

  • Tackle - we have a fine selection of rod and reels. It is not necessary to bring your own; however you are more than welcome to bring your own personal favorite.
  • Bait or lures - we try to keep an ample supply of both.
  • Fish cleaning - we are happy to clean the catch and bag the meat.
  • Coolers - the boats have coolers and ice to keep your lunch cold.
  • Snacks - water and sodas are complementary.


Once we have decided on the type of charter you are interested in we will discuss the waters that are best suited for that type of fishing. We will then pick a meeting place (usually a boat launch) and a convenient time.
