Types of Fishing

Bottom Fishing: The most common way of fishing techniques, used to catch fish that are found near the sea floor. Each paid person will receive their own rod and reel.

Trolling: A method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water behind a boat. Each paid person will take turns reeling in the fish.

Check the ticket descriptions to see what type of fish you are likely to catch on each trip.

  • Parking is available on-site for a fee.
  • The crew will fillet and bag any fish that the customer catches on the trip. Please tip the crew appropriately for all the hard work they do on the trip.

    Great experience

    We had a good time & caught a few fish! It was a full boat & super windy. Our guides earned their money keeping everyone untangled & keeping things moving! They remained pleasant & had great attitudes despite those conditions!

    Fun time

    The boat and crew were great. I really wish I may have been considered for at least a partial refund since I was sea sick the whole time and did not fish at all.

    Great time fishing!

    This was great fun for the whole family. We caught tons of fish and had a restaurant cook some of it that evening for an amazing dinner. The staff was great too. Very professional and really tried to make sure everyone was enjoying the trip. I highly recommend this trip to anybody.
