Question: We have never been fishing before, can we expect to catch
fish on our first charter?
Answer: Yes, we cater to everyone from the most inexperienced
to seasoned experienced anglers. If you have never done this before we are eager to help
you develop your skills and become an accomplished angler.
Question: What happens if the weather is too rough for fishing?
Answer: We will make every effort to take you fishing on the
day you have booked us. If we cannot make a trip because of adverse weather we will offer
you the next available day
Question: Is there anything I need to bring on a charter besides
food and drink?
Answer: Yes, sunglasses and a hat, sun screen, you may want
to bring a camera and we will allow you to bring tackle if it is suitable for saltwater
fishing. (We realize some anglers have their own favorite or lucky tackle and we will rig
it for the type fishing we will be doing.)
Question: What is Light Tackle?
Answer: Light tackle is fishing tackle fitted with 6 to
30 pound test line, and most is spinning tackle. This tackle gives you the most action and
does not require brute strength but finesse to land a fish. It is fun and gives the fish a
fighting chance. It is light enough that women and children can handle it and enjoy the
thrill of saltwater sportfishing.
Question: What if my question isn't answered here?
Answer: Just e-mail us your question or questions and you will
