Kyle will have the boat clean and ready upon your arrival. It’s equipped with top-of-the-line fishing equipment as well as maintained tackle for all your fishing needs.

Live bait will be furnished and on the boat upon your arrival, along with a variety of artificial options. A snack cooler with ice is also at your convenience to keep all your food and drinks cold. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.
