You WILL Catch a Fish!

Women & Children Fish like Pros

There's a myth behind women and children (fishing). I personally think they catch fish just as well as anyone, and sometimes even better than the professional fishermen that want to do it their way. They listen to our mates, they get in the chair, they turn their rods and their reels the correct way - because there's a coach right there teaching you. Some of the women and children to come on board have caught some of the biggest fish. Look at the 58-pounder that was caught last year by a juvenile who was only 12 years old! Some women have come on with 55 and 56 pound fish. They listen and do it right. We have groups of women that are chartering this boat because of the way we catch fish, the cleanliness of the boat - these are all important factors.

Women Friendly Fishing Charters

Both of our boats are women-friendly. Our boats are clean and taken care of. When you come on, they smell like Lemon Pledge. When you leave, the box is full of fillets, and the mate will bag them for you. We cater to bachelorette parties, we have more vessels and can take larger parties, for a comfortable and unbelievable experience. And remember, we're also bringing dinner home!
