Frequently Asked Questions
How much is the trip, what time do you leave, and how much fishing time?
It is $60 for the ½ day and $80 for the all day. There are discounts for seniors and kids. On a morning ½ day, the boat leaves at 8:00am and returns at noon, with 2-3 hours of fishing time. On the all day, the boat leaves at 8:00am and returns at 4:00pm. There are typically 4-5 hours of fishing on the all day.
Are reservations and a deposit required for open trips?
Please call before your trip to reserve a spot. No deposit is required. All we need is your name and phone number. Please have the courtesy to call if you need to cancel your trip.
Who can clean our fish?
On the party boats, the crew will clean your fish for $.35/lb. On Reel Therapy, the cost of fish cleaning is included in the cost of the charter.
What can I do with my fish if I’m from out of town?
Fresh fillets can stay on ice in the cooler or be refrigerated for up to a week. If you are traveling back home by air, airlines do not allow coolers with ice on the aircraft. If you can, we suggest that you freeze the fillets, wrap them in newspaper and towels, put them in your luggage and they should still be frozen when you arrive home. Dry ice is also an option for air travel.
What if I catch a trophy fish?
All we need is a length measurement of the fish, and we can either release the fish or bring it back to the dock to fillet. Our taxidermist uses the measurements to make a replica mount. Please ask one of the mates if you would like to get your fish mounted.
Can I bring my own rod and reel?
Please do, we encourage people to bring their own tackle. We, however, discourage the use of power pro and spider wire line. It is hard to undo tangles and once it gets caught in the prop, it can chew into the metal shaft.
Is there a bathroom/head on the boat?
Of course, all of the boats have bathrooms.
Is there air conditioning on the boat?
The party boats do not have air conditioning. Our sport boat “Reel Therapy”, however, does have air conditioning.
How many people typically go on the boat?
Every day is different and there is no typical amount. Sea Love II holds 61 passengers and the Sea Love III holds 30. The largest crowds tend to be on the weekends during the summer.
When is the best time to go?
We catch plenty of fish year round. However, the change of seasons, when the water warms up (March-May) and when the water cools (September-November), is generally better.
