A trip with Mega Bite Charters comes inclusive with top-notch fishing equipment to make your catch possible. You’ll be provided with rods, reels, tackle, and lures. If you decide to keep the fish, it will be cleaned and filleted for you once caught, so that you can take it home for dinner later.

The Captain takes every charter as a personal challenge and yours won’t be an exception. Welcome aboard!
