Things to Know
Before you go!
Here are some recommendations to ensure you have a

You will need to bring your own lunch and beverages or you may
make arrangements to have something prepared for you at the Inlet
Harbor Restaurant. Their hours are 11:00 A.M. till 9:00ish so
please make arrangements the day before your trip.
You may also want to bring along sunscreen, warm clothes, Dramamine
(for seasickness), and hand towels.
Sea Sickness- If you have ever been sea sick before or think
you may become sea sick and want to take Dramamine please do
not take it the day of your fishing trip, it's too late! In order
for Dramamine to be effective it must be in your system prior
to your fishing trip. Take small doses 1 or 2 days prior to your
fishing trip and none the day of your fishing trip. It has been
our experience that taking Dramamine the morning of your trip
tends to make matters worse, 99% of the time you still get sick.
If you feel you are going to be sick, please do not use
the head (restroom), go to the back of the boat. Doing this will
keep others from becoming sick. Besides, FISH LOVE A GOOD CHUM
SLICK! Don't be embarrassed, we've seen big tough marines get

soled sneakers are preferred if possible.
If you have never been Deep Sea Fishing before, it is a good
idea not to touch or handle a fish that you are not familiar
with. We have very experienced mates on board to assist you throughout
Please help the mate keep the boat safe and shipshape by putting
trash, cigarette butts, food, bait etc. in the appropriate place.
In other words- Treat the boat as if it were your own!
Frequently Asked Questions
We have a ten-year-old child, are they allowed to go?
To ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable trip we ask that
you only bring children that are of age four and up. Also, please
keep in mind that you may want to limit your trip to 6 hours
or less when children are on board. In case you want to return
to the dock, we will be much closer to shore on the shorter trips
should you want to return early.
We have never been Deep Sea Fishing Before. Will someone show
us how to fish and use the equipment?
Yes- the mate is there to assist you throughout the day. He
will show you how to use your rod & reel, hook your baits
and some common techniques for bottom fishing. He will be happy
to answer any questions you may have.
What happens when we catch a fish?
When you catch your fish, the mate will unhook your fish and
place it in the fish box.
What happens to the catch at the dock?
The crew will unload your catch and clean your fish for an additional
fee. If you would like to have your trophy mounted please let
us know so that we can make arrangements with the local taxidermist.
Do we need a fishing license?
No, we supply your fishing license, rod, reel, bait, tackle
and safe transportation to and from the fishing grounds..
Do you guarantee we will catch fish?
There is a reason why they call it "Fishing" rather
than "Catching Fish" ! However, we endeavor to employ
the best crew in the business and they will do everything possible
to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and productive trip. We
strive to earn your business and keep our customers happy so
that they will return to our docks year after year. Is
it customary to tip the crew? If so, how much?
Tipping should be based on the service you receive and rather
than the amount of fish you catch. Hey, your the fisherman (person)
When deciding what to tip, you should consider the following:
Was the Crew Courteous?
Were they helpful throughout the day?
Did they answer your questions in a polite and thorough manner?
Were they attentive to your needs?
Then it is customary to tip the crew 15% to 20%
based on your satisfaction with the service they provided.
