Our US Coast Guard license allows us to take up to six anglers. This is typically referred to as a "six pack" license. We can also take smaller groups if you want your charter fishing to be more targeted towards you individually. Smaller groups or individuals can often be merged into a larger group by joining in on one of our "walk on charters".
The boat has a blanket fishing license so it will not be necessary for you to purchase any additional licenses for your offshore fishing trip.
Definitely. The customer has the decision on keeping any legally caught fish. Although we encourage the release of all billfish like blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish, we always keep a fish box full of ice so that we can keep your catch fresh.
You will have the option of taking your fish with you or using the fish cleaning station available at our docks. Please remember to bring along a large cooler to leave in your vehicle until we return.
If you are prone to seasickness or motion sickness there are many over-the-counter pills available. However most of them come with several undesirable side effects. If you are concerned with taking or even giving these medicines to your family please consider getting an electronic Reliefband. These electronic devices are FDA tested and have been proven to be effective. They even work well on 3D amusement park rides and reading a book while riding in a car.
The mate is the hardest working guy on any offshore fishing trip. It is customary to tip a good mate between 15% and 20%.
Please always plan on being at the dock at the scheduled time unless you hear from the captain directly. It has been our experience that most customers aren't aware just how much better the weather can be out on the water! If the weather conditions are such that the captain decides that an offshore trip will be unsafe he will at that time give you your option of rescheduling your charter or getting a full refund of your deposit.
We are proud to supply our charter customers with the latest high tech rods, reels, line, lures, and fishing tackle along with the freshest bait available as a part of our charter packages. If you have a special rod and reel or lures that you would like to bring along please let the captain know ahead of time so that he can make the necessary arrangements for storing your property safely and so that he can plan your trip so that you will be able to use it.
Bring along a small cooler with enough food and drink for the day.
Please wear layered clothing.
Bring sunglasses (polarized is preferred).
Rubber sole shoes only (deck shoes work best).
Bring along sunscreen and a cap.
Motion sickness medicine (if that is a problem for you).
Protective case for your camera and other electronics like camera phones.
Large cooler for your catch (please leave in your vehicle during trip).
