You will be provided with the licenses, as well as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. If you decide to keep the catch, on return to the dock, it can be cleaned and filleted for a ride home, so that you could have it for dinner later or just fill the freezer. As well as that, you will be offered drinks and snacks during the fishing adventure.

Ben and Cole were amazing clients with great patience. Fishing is tough on and around full moons because fish tend to feed at night. Even tho the bite was slow I had an Awsome time meeting new friends with similar interest and I found the printing company I will be doing my business with in the future. Galley Printing.  thanks again
