Common Questions

What to Wear?
  • People fish in tennis shoes, hiking boots, rubber boots, tee shirts, sweaters,
    jackets, etc. 
  • Dress in layers and bring weather proof boots/raingear to stay dry if it’s raining.
  • There is an inside cabin to get out of the environment, so dress smart and comfortable.
May I Bring a Cooler With Food?

Yes, a small cooler for anything you want to drink/eat. (NO BANANAS OR GLASS BOTTLES) Our fish bags will be adequate to transport your catch. We ask that all packs and coolers be stored below.

Do You Offer Fish Processing & Shipping?

We refer our customers to a locally owned and operated processor who will work with you to ship your catch. 

What to Tip?

Charter Fishing is just like the regular service industry. A tip of 15% to 20% is considered normal. This crew works really hard at baiting your hooks, netting your fish, asking if you want pictures before they clean your fish and taking care of you. An appropriate tip is for each fisherman to tip $20 to $25+.
