Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, fishing licenses, live bait, and lures. You will be provided with bottled water so you can feel free to bring your own snacks with you. The Captain will clean and fillet your fish once it caught so you will be able to take it home with you to eat later or just fill the freezer.

Awesome day.  Capt Fox is a pro and his setup on the boat shows it.  He worked hard to get us on the snook and my son caught his trophy.  We will definitely book with Capt Fox again.

Highly recommended fishing with Richard! He explained everything - teaching us how to catch the different fish. I personally struggled catching a fish and he would not give up until I caught one, keeping a very positive attitude.
