FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is included in a charter fishing trip?
We provide all of the necessary licenses, tackle and gear, bait, ice, expert crew assistance. We also provide fish cleaning once back at the dock for only $0.50/lb.

You are responsible for providing your own food, water, drinks (no glass allowed), sunscreen. Please remember to bring your own ice chests to transport your fish home! Don’t forget a camera to capture the fun – and to brag to your friends later! If you have any questions regarding what to bring, please call Captain Jimmy at (912) 239-7309.
What should I wear?
Wear what makes you feel comfortable! We strongly recommend boat-friendly footwear – closed-toed sandals or sneakers (you can wear flip flops, but we recommend closed-toed shoes) – non-marking sole footwear only please! Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen and sunglasses! When in doubt – bring it! Better to be over-prepared than under-prepared. We have space on deck for extra clothes, or you can keep them in your car. Make sure to check the weather in advance so that you’re prepared for any kind of weather!
What time should I arrive?
Our trips start and end at different times throughout the day. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled charter fishing trip time. The boat will arrive back at the docks at the scheduled arrival time.
Where do we meet?
The captain will provide directions once you have booked your trip. If you don’t have that information, please call us directly at (912) 239-7309 and we will provide directions.
Will my trip be cancelled because of the weather?
Weather calls are made at the dock. If there is no way we will be able to get on the water the captain will contact you the day prior to your trip. We cannot make weather calls a week out due to the local climate.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel your trip for any reason, please contact us more than 30 days prior to your trip for a full refund. If you cancel within 30 days of your trip, you will not receive a refund.
What if I am prone to motion sickness?
If you have experienced motion sickness before or think you may be prone to sea sickness please start taking Bonine or Dramamine (we prefer Bonine) three days prior to your offshore fishing trip. Take them every night before you go to bed and also the morning of your trip.
Should I tip?
If there is a mate aboard remember, he/she is working for tips only. They set the boat up an hour prior to your arrival and spend about 2 hours after cleaning up. 20% is typically a good tip. Thank you.
What happens after the trip?
We will bring you back to the dock and you can grab a drink or bite to eat at the restaurant next door or just hang around while we gut and clean your fish! Want to eat your fish right away? Take one of your fish to Bubba Gumbo’s restaurant (right next door) and for $10 they will prepare your fish for you and give you two sides and a drink.
