You can expect to use techniques such as bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, jigging, and spinning. After your trip, your catch may be taken to the marina for professional processing to take home for a great meal or put in the freezer for a later date.

The Capt. will do his best to put your group on the fish and provide an enjoyable time on the water. Tackle, bait, ice, and licensing are all included so you can concentrate on enjoying the trip. The Ocean Blue carries all USCG-required safety equipment for all passengers.
