Stressed Out Charters

Come and go fishing with Stressed Out Charters and leave all your stress at the dock. Captain Scott Luster has over 34 years of tournament and fishing knowledge. He and his crew specialize in creating memories - from your kid’s first fish to the parent’s largest fish they have ever caught. This isn’t the usual charter, as the crew will try to teach and show how they do what they’re best at. From showing what fish look like on the sonar, to the knots they tie.

The 2 and 4-hour trips will be on a brand new bulls bay.At the end of your trip, the deckhand will clean and bag your fish. He works for tips, so please bring some cash with you. While he is cleaning your fish you are welcome to walk up to Tacky Jack’s restaurant and relax or sit outside on the swings beside the docks.

Please contact us if you want to book this crew for tournaments and rodeos.

Stressed Out Charters will do anything they can to make your day enjoyable. You just need to pick a date and show up on time.
