You’ll be provided with top-quality Penn rods and reels and live bait is also included in the price.

Capt. Andy will offer to clean and fillet your catch so it’s ready to be thrown on the grill for a tasty meal after your trip. Your fishing license is also covered. All you need to do is keep your eye on the prize and focus on the catch!

Capt. Andy loves taking families out on the water and particularly enjoys having children aboard. He’s a patient and knowledgeable teacher and nothing makes him happier than being able to pass his passion for fishing down to the younger generation.
