Please be sure to call to book your trip well in advance, as our dates book up quickly!  Our goal is to provide you with a safe and fun fishing trip that you'll remember for years to come and that will bring you back again!  Please let us know in advance if there is anyone in your group with a physical limitation or disability to ensure that we can accommodate them.  Children over the age of 8 are always welcome.  All children 12 years old and under MUST wear a life jacket at all times while on the boat, per USCG regulations.

What will we be fishing for?

Certain times of the year are often better for one species or another, so generally something is always biting.  There are lots of factors that play into how and when fish bite, or don't, or when they just disappear. We can't always dictate what species bite our lines, but we do work very hard for our customers to put fish on the lines and in the boat.  Please understand that if you're booking a trip for a certain species that ultimately, this may not be 100% possible on the day of your trip.  We will discuss the bite and what's happening when you check in with us the day prior to your trip and again prior to leaving the dock.  We will discuss options and strategies to make your trip fun and as successful as possible!  Remember, you can't catch what isn't there!

Inclement Weather

No one wants to miss their day of fishing on the water, especially due to inclement weather, but it is an unfortunate reality. We watch and check weather conditions several times daily, in addition to watching for future weather several days out.  However, forecasts aren't always accurate and conditions can change quickly. Years of experience have taught us that what may not appear "too bad" on shore can be twice as bad out in 100 feet of water.  We try our best to get everyone's trip in, but safety has to come first and sometimes a trip must be cancelled.  If your trip is cancelled due to weather, we will try to reschedule within the season. If this is not possible, then your deposit is refunded or you may choose to rebook for the following season and apply your deposit towards that trip.

Tournaments / Derbies

If your crew is competitive, please inquire if one of the LOC Derbies will be in progress the day of your trip.  These are big fish derbies that run over several weeks each, and pay out 20 places in each species division.  Derby fishing always adds an element of fun and excitement to a trip!  $15.00 will get you a one day ticket, or $30 for a two day ticket. Everyone on the boat must be registered prior to 7am the day of fishing.  If you're interested, we can direct you on how to purchase your tickets prior to your arrival.
For those skilled and serious anglers, there are several tournaments that we compete in throughout the season.  These are intense, highly competitive tournaments with high dollar pay outs.  We will occasionally offer these tournament dates to our clients upon request.  Call for dates & information.  Please note that tournaments generally require a 3 day commitment.
