Fishing List Checklist

As with anything in life, preparation is essential to a successful fishing expedition. Take some time to go over what you should bring aboard our boat before you head out on your expedition. Bringing the right items ensures that you’ll have a great time. Please call us before your expedition with any questions you might have.

Know What to Bring on a Fishing Trip

As you get ready for your fishing trip, review this checklist to be sure that you are bringing all necessary items. Check the weather forecast for the day of your trip so that you know if you’ll need to bring a jacket or other outwear with you. Be sure to also bring:

  • Your smile
  • Food and drinks
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses, preferably polarized
  • A hat
  • A camera
  • Tennis shoes or shoes with non-marking soles

What We Provide

As part of our charter services, we provide many of the essentials that you’ll need to land game fish. Arrive at the dock with the items listed above and you’ll be ready for your trip. Onboard the boat, we provide:

  • Fishing licenses
  • Bait and tackle
  • A cooler for your food and drinks
  • Cleaning, cutting and bagging of fish

What Not to Bring

No bananas on boardWhile there are very few things that you can’t bring on an expedition, we must insist that you leave the following at home:

  • Bananas and all products containing bananas
  • Hard-soled or black-soled shoes
  • Glass containers
  • Illegal drugs

Many customers ask us about the captain’s No Bananas on Board policy. This policy goes back to an old angling superstition that bananas on board a boat bring bad luck. In fact, many fishermen have discovered that these tempting fruits can harbor spiders, vermin and other pests. Bananas and boats simply don’t go together. Ensure the good luck of your expedition by leaving all bananas and banana products behind.
