Fishing licenses are provided for all on board, as well as all the equipment you will need for your day on the water. Of course, if you have a favorite fishing set, bring it along, or just let Capt. Dave know what you miss beforehand. You will need to bring your own food and beverages. Pack sunblock, polarized shades, a hat, and light clothes. And remember to bring a camera.
