What should we bring?
Please bring food and drinks. Also, if you are chartering during the day, remember your sun screen, hats, and sunglasses. Also, bring jackets in case it’s raining or chilly. Don’t forget to bring a waterproof camera.
What do you provide?
We supply all licenses, tackle, fuel, bait (dead bait included, live bait is available for sale or to catch during the charter), coolers, ice, and decades of experience. All charter trips feature a captain and mate.
What is the difference between Sportfishing and Drift Fishing Trips?
- Drift fishing is done 100% on our recently-upgraded large party boat, the “Lois Ann.” This is a shared charter with up to 60 people that fishes daily at 8am, 1pm and 7pm. On this charter, everything is provided including captain, mate, bait and all the tackle, including fishing rods and reels. All you need to do is show up! The Lois Ann features full air-conditioning, bathroom and large cockpit with plenty of room for everyone. We fish nearshore on the reefs for smaller fish such as snapper, grouper, king mackerel and sharks. It is up to you to hook the fish. This trip is $45/person. Great value! More info…
- Sportfishing is a more private and exclusive hands-on offshore fishing experience aboard our custom sportfishing boats in which we target the largest big-game fish in South Florida and some of the most-prized in the world. Our sportfishing boats generally fish up to 6 people with our larger boat fishes up to 22. You can fish either as a private charter (recommended) or shared charter. This trip provides a much better opportunity to catch large gamefish such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, White Marlin, various Sharks and much more. More Info…
Do We Need to Buy Fishing Licenses?
No. You are not required to purchase a State of Florida fishing license when you book a fishing trip with us.
Can I bring alcohol on the boat?
Are you 21 years of age or older? If so, then yes, you can bring alcohol aboard. Are you under 21? Not so much.
How many people can I bring?
We are the only charter fleet in South Florida that can accommodate up to 62 people. We have sportfishing boats that accommodate up to 6, up to 22 and up to 62. Simply pick your type of trip when booking to be sure we match the boat to your needs. Click HERE for reservations.
Are there any age requirements?
There are no age requirements. All ages and skill levels are welcome, especially Junior Anglers.
How much fishing experience do I need to book a trip?
None. We provide all the experience that you need. We love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished a day in their life, but leave with a new understanding and a unforgettable experience.
What do you typically catch?
Fishing always varies from season to season. The best way to see what we’re catching is to keep tabs on our fishing reports HERE. For big game fishing, be sure to check out our shared sportfishing and private sportfishing charters.
Do we catch edible fish?
Some of the fish you are likely to catch are edible, and are yours to keep. Generally, if the fish do not have table value, we release them or, in some cases, use them for bait.
Do you accommodate persons in a wheelchair or with restricted mobility?
Absolutely. Our boats have a flat deck (cockpit) in the back that allows for easy wheelchair access and ability to fight fish. Our crew will help you get on and off the boat.
What if I catch the fish of a lifetime?
This happens quite a bit for our clients! We have a great local taxidermist here in town, and they create incredible replica mounts. If you catch a big one, tell our mate that you want to mount it, and they will be happy to help you set everything up with the taxidermist. The process is smooth and worry-free.
What is your cancellation policy?
A: Cancellations must be made at least 30 days in advance. Once you are within 30 days, there are absolutely no refunds. No shows are also non-refundable. All sales are final.
