What To Expect On A Fishing Trip:

Expectations of a fishing trip can be different, depending on the weather and location. Before starting your fishing trip, make sure you have all your equipment and wearing appropriate clothing. If you did not bring any fishing equipment with you, then you may rent any equipment from the crew or a local renting area. 

It will be customary for the captain of the ship to brief anyone taking part on the fishing trip on any guidelines that everyone should follow. The captain and crew wants to assure their passengers will have an excellent time, so please do not break any of their rules. When the boat you are on takes off, do not start casting away. The captain will take the boat to a spot to start fishing. Fishing will begin when the captain advises passengers to drop their lines. Always make way for other crew and passengers. Let the captain or other crew members know if you want your fish bagged. You may be asked from the start if you want your fish bagged. Feel free to ask the captain and crew any questions about the fishing trip.

Expect wind in most places, so wear something warm like a hoodie, a coat, or a windbreaker. Find a place to put your gear. Do not leave your belongings on the deck, since the deck will get wet over time and other passengers could slip on them. When you cast your fishing rod lines out, do not suddenly expect the fish to grab on to your lines, so be patient and calm during the trip. When your fishing line has a fish attached, the crew members will assist in bagging your fish. If you have a camera, there will opportunities for photographing your catch. The fishing charter will have options for shipping your fish to your residence. If you have a history of sea sickness, take proper medication. You can bring your own food, but do not throw any trash or wrappers into the water.

Top Rules To Follow:

  • Always listen to the captain and crew.
  • Do not break any rules.
  • Change your bait often if you are using live bait.
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Keep the environment safe for you and everyone around.
  • Tip your crew properly, they worked hard to ensure your safety and that your fishing trip went well.
