What to Bring

You should wear comfortable clothing that matches the weather. If rain is in the forecast, then bring a raincoat. If it is going to be sunny, then a hat, polarized sunglasses and sunscreen would be needed. Slip-proof shoes are also recommended. For all fishing trips, a license is required. It is $7 and can be purchased at any bait shop in the area. $5 will be charged for gear rental except when paying in cash, and then it is free. You should also bring a cooler for your fish. We fillet your catch for you, and for crab trips, cook the crab for nominal prices. There are seasons for many fish and the best times of the year for hooking up with them. Try to plan your vacation with the season of the fish you want to target. If you need clarification on these seasons, contact Captain Richard, who can assist you with setting up the charter you need.
