For your fishing adventure, Fish Finder Marine will provide you with live bait, which includes cut squid, cut mackerel, spearing, and live minnows. You could rent a rod for an additional cost of $5. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip if you decide to keep it. As well as that, the Captain will provide the fishing licenses. You only need to bring your own snacks and drinks if you want.
