Frequently Asked Questions
What is included with my fishing charter?
Full or half day fishing charters include all bait, tackle and ice. The
captain and crew will provide everything needed to catch fish.
How many people can go on the fishing charter?
Our charter boat is licensed to take up to a maximum of six chartered
passengers plus the captain and crew.
What time does the boat leave?
Typically on a full day fishing charter we leave at 7:00 a.m. and on a
half-day fishing charter we leave at 7:30 a.m. However, we can make special
arrangements in advance to accommodate your schedule. Please check with
the captain 48 hours prior to the day of your charter.
What do I need to bring for the charter?
All you need to supply is your own food and beverages while on board,
your own sunscreen and sunglasses and any sea sick medications if you
feel you may need it. We have plenty of cold storage and ice chests to
store your food and drinks.
Is there a bathroom on the boat?
Yes. We have a comfortable and clean bathroom on the boat.
Can I keep the fish I catch?
Although we encourage the tagging and release of all blue marlin and other
billfish species, you can make arrangements with the Captain if you want
to keep any of the fish you catch.
Can I take my fish home with me?
Yes. We can make arrangements for you to have your fish processed and
stored for the balance of your trip and then shipped to your final destination
or packaged for you to take home on your return flight. We can also arrange
for your fish to be processed if you would like to have it prepared at
your home or condominium or by a local restaurant.
What if I want to have my fish mounted?
Most saltwater species of fish, including blue marlin, are not mounted
using the skin of the fish. The mounts are made of a fiberglass replica
mold and the size is determined by measurements taken from the fish. Your
fish may be mounted by both taking measurements of the fish at the time
of the catch, and then releasing your fish, or by taking the measurements
on the dock. We can refer you to several quality taxidermists who can
then create your mount. Be sure and let the captain know of your intentions
in advance of catching your fish so he can take the appropriate actions
in tagging and releasing any blue marlin or other billfish.
What about tipping?
We are in the service business and our goal is to exceed our client's
expectations. If you feel your captain and crew has done a good job for
you on your fishing charter, tipping is always appreciated.
