We recommend you bring any food and drinks you would like. We do not provide any sunscreen, rain gear, sunglasses, etc. Please check the weather before to plan accordingly. We provide everything you will need for the fishing. Fish cleaning is available on premises for a per pound charge. You will need to bring your own cooler and ice to carry your catch home.
It is customary to tip your mate 15-20%, the mate's hard work is primarily what makes your day a success. This can be paid by cash, check, or even credit card.

The Simrad SY50 is a compact omnidirectional medium frequency fish-finding sonar, that offers the latest technology. The operating frequency can be adjusted for improved detection, or to avoid a noise source such as another echo sounder or sonar in the same fishing area. This makes it possible to achieve higher resolution, longer ranges, and clear echograms in all conditions. This state of the art sonar means that the Qualifier can locate tunas and marlin 1600 feet away. So if there’s fish, we’ll find them!

We pride ourselves on providing some of the finest tackle to be found on any boat. We carry custom rods using Calstar, Seeker and Biscayne blanks using Fuji, Aftco and Winthrop components. Our reels are Shimano (Tiagra 30-130, Talica, Tyrnos, TLD, Spheros, Saragossa) Alutecnos, Fin Nor (Santiago, Marquesa & Marquesa Pelagic). All of our jigging rods are made by Seeker Hercules. Our electric reels are Shimano, Hooker and LP. We can provide stand up tackle, however we need 12 hours notice. We do not have a greenstick nor do we want one; even though it is a very productive method of fishing, we prefer to catch our fish using a more traditional method. If you have special tackle needs please let us know when booking.
