What do I need to provide?

We provide everything you need to fish: bait, tackle, fishing license, First Mate, and fish cleaning. You will want to bring sun screen, a hat, food and drinks plus and of course a camera.

Can I bring my own rod and reel?


Do I need fishing experience?

No, we love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished before, but leave with a new understanding and an unforgettable experience!

What can I expect to catch?

Fishing always varies from season to season. Be sure to check out my Facebook page for updated info.

Are the fish edible?

Most of the fish you will catch are edible, and are yours to keep. Any fish caught that are not edible, we release or use it for bait.

What if I catch a really big fish?

If you catch a big one, let the deckhand know you want to mount it. We have an awesome taxidermist that does fantastic work!
