Where will we meet to start our charter?

We can meet at several different locations in Pinellas County an western Hillborough County. Where our charter will start will depend on the time of year, the weather prediction for your charter date, and where the best bite is. Please chat with Capt. Chris to discuss pickup location options.

Is there a bathroom on the boat?

There is no bathroom on the boat but there are several locations we will be able to stop for a bathroom break if needed during your charter.

Will I get sea sick?

We make every effort to fish in calm waters. During inshore fishing charters, it is highly unlikely that you would suffer from any sea sickness — unless you are extremely sensative to motion sickness.

On nearshore and tarpon charters, we could experience some choppy watter or gently rolling waves at times.

Sometimes the weather can change drastically and the water can become rough at times. Though this is rare, we suggest preparing accordingly.

If you are sensative to motion sickness, we suggest that you begin taking motion sickness medication a day or two before your charter.

  • Use of fishing rods & reels
