Where to go, What to expect

Where to Meet

We sail from the Eastern most access point of Port Canaveral. With no slow zones to navigate this means once were under way, its full speed ahead to the fishing grounds. Getting there is easy. Take SR528 East to Port Canaveral's South exit, George King Blvd. You can only go one way, east. Continue on this road until it ends at Jetty Park. Just before the park entrance on the left is the entrance to our new East Ramp location. We typically have the boat launched and ready to go at the floating docks. You may like to drive close to the docks to drop off your gear, but please park only in areas designed for individual cars and trucks without trailers. Restroom facilities are right next to the docks also for your convenience. Remember my number for any last minute questions or directions, 321-794-7955.

What to Bring

Food, drink, sun protection, and a camera. Bring your Lunch box, and drinks along, since there are no stores once we leave the dock! Water and Sports drinks are best for staying hydrated and energized, bring plenty (1 gal per person min). Food: we have no oven, so bring what you would to a picnic. I myself like food that I can eat with one hand, so I can keep fishing with the other! Long loose light colored clothes offer the most comfort and protection from the sun. Don't forget a hat and sunglasses. A camera to catch the action, and record your catch is a good idea. A cooler for you car, to bring your catch home. A rain poncho is a good idea given that in Florida its always a possibility, and the fish don't stop eating just because of rain. a water resistant windbreaker works also. We will bring a cooler with ice for your food and drinks. If you choose to bring you own, please keep them to the 6-pack or 12 pack size for storage consideration on the boat.

A little about the Weather

While we hope for the best weather for every trip, we have little control over what we get. As long as we consider the weather to be safe, and the fishing experience to be reasonably comfortable, we will run. Rain does not stop fish from biting, but lightening and high winds and sea’s will keep us off the water. While there is no magic number we use to draw that line of fishable or not, we do consider the guest experience, wind and sea directions, and possible changes in the weather during our trip. We will always err on the side of caution. Even so, the best forecast can change suddenly while we are many miles from land, and when this happens, we reserve the right to shorten the trip if the Captain deems it necessary. On some occasions the weather changes overnight, and a last minute call must be made, and the Captain will communicate this with you prior to leaving for the Port in the morning.

Will I get Seasick?

Most people say no. I have however seen those that do a lot of boating succumb every once in a while, so take whatever measures are necessary to ensure the time you spend hanging over the edge of the boat is to retrieve a fish, and not something else. Follow the directions carefully, and taking Dramamine or Bonine the day before as well as the morning of the trip can ensure that your system will be prepared.

What We Supply

We supply all bait, ice, tackle and equipment for a day of fishing. We also provide the State fishing license, and Federal Fishing Permits as required by law. Fish cleaning can be done for you within the total trip time, however this would require the time at sea being reduced accordingly, since we are not permitted to clean fish until we return to Port.

What NOT to Bring

Hard liquor, glass bottles, dark soled shoes, spray on sunscreen, any illegal substance (no matter how minor).If cigarettes are necessary, we have a smokers room off the back of the boat! GPS devices should not be brought on the boat (we have all that is needed).

Tipping

This, like any other service such as restaurants, is a personal choice. Traditionally Charter crews rely on tips to supplement their incomes. When a Mate is used in addition to the Captain, they are working solely for tips. When the Captain serves as your mate, he to appreciates any gratuities extended to him at the trips end. Some Charters suggest a percentage, however, we feel its best for you to decide what the service rendered for the days trip was worth to you and your group.

"Please remember that how hard the crew works to help you have an enjoyable time is not always reflected in the 'icebox'. There are times that no matter how hard we try, the fish will not bite. On days like this, the crew typically works much harder to help you enjoy the day!"
