Your trip includes top-quality Penn rods and reels, as well as snacks and soft drinks to keep your energy up. Want to fly-fish? Let your captain know, and bring your favorite gear along. Little ones are welcome, as long as they’re aged 5 and above. All that’s left is to come aboard Rockstar Charters and experience the irresistible combination of a truly impressive vessel, expert guidance, and a world-class fishery!
