How Many People Can Come?

The maximum number of guests on the boat is 6 (six). Gotta have room for all the fish we'll catch!

When and how long do we fish?

The boat leaves the dock at 5:30 AM. We suggest you arrive by 5:00 AM to get situated. We usually arrive back at the dock around 5:00 PM.

Do I need a fishing license?

No. Every passenger during your charter is covered under our "Blanket License".

What do I need to bring?

All you'll need is food, drinks, sunblock, and energy! We provide everything fishing related... gear, tackle, ice, bait, etc ...

Can we keep our fish or do you practice catch and release?

Both. We encourage all anglers to practice conservation. Unless it is a food catch (eg tuna, dolphin or wahoo), we recommend catch and release. There are strict regulations on what you can keep and what must be released.

We'll make sure you stay legal.

All billfish (marlin and sailfish) must be released.

Can I get my fish cleaned?

Yes. Fish cleaning services are available at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. We carry plenty of ice to ensure that your catch is in the best condition possible when it hits the dock.

You will need a large cooler to take your catch home. We strongly recommend 1 to 2 pounds of ice for each pound of fillets. This assures that your catch will arrive at its destination in excellent condition for your dining preparation and enjoyment.
