    Your mate will set the rods and lures, land the fish, and fillet your fish. Sit back and relax!
    We “skin” your fillets. “Scaling” of fish is not offered.
  • What is not included?
    Food and Beverages
    Beer and Wine (in moderation) is permissible. Remember to stay responsible.
  • What if the forecast is poor the night before?
    Some of the best fishing will occur as a storm front is moving in or out.
    Wind is the primary reason for us to reschedule a trip. Both for your safety and the experience of the group.
    In the event that the weather is turning poor, we will call you the night before to discuss.
    Rescheduling is the first option.
