MATE-BAIT. Our mate is there to assist you with boarding, rod rental, tackle, cutting your bait, netting your catch, helping with a tangled line, and cleaning your fish. Don't hesitate to holler for the mate. It is his job to help you. It is customary to TIP the mate at the end of your trip. We provide bait but everyone is invited to bring your own. When fishing we recommend you bring a cooler, ice, lunch, beverage, and sunscreen. Dress for the weather. Alcohol is permitted, but unruly behavior is not welcome or tolerated. Overdoing it will end your trip. We are a family oriented business and take pride in making it a great trip for all.
RENTAL RODS-$5. Please treat our rental rods as if they were your own. If you lose it overboard you will be required to pay the cost to replace the rod and reel. Please be careful.
