What’s included in the fishing trip?
The price of the charter includes all dead bait, fishing license, tackle and ice. There is a 1st mate on all charters who works very hard to help you catch fish and when you return to the dock will cut, clean, ice and bag them for you. A standard tip for the mate is 15-20% of your total charter. The crew works very hard so if you are pleased and wish to give more it is truly appreciated!
What do we do with the fish we catch?
The 1st Mate will clean, fillet and bag your fish for you. There are several restaurants that will cook your catch. "Hook & Cook" is what we call it locally. If you plan on going to a restaurant after your charter, please tell the mate and he will make a bag for you to take to the restaurant. The remaining fish will be placed in your cooler and topped with ice.
What do I need to bring with me?
You are responsible for providing your own food and drink (cans preferred please) along with anything else you may want including hats, sunscreen, cameras, etc. You may want to bring a jacket or rain slicker depending on the weather. Please note: it is not advised to bring a GPS or any other hand held device on your fishing trip. (Capt. Mike might throw it overboard)
Are children welcome on the charters?
Absolutely! The Lady Em is family friendly and kids are always welcome! The Lady Em crew enjoys fishing with families and children and work hard to help create awesome memories for the entire family!
What if it rains on the day of my charter?
As some of the Captains say "the fish are already wet" so it will more than likely not affect the fishing! Often times rain showers can be a wonderful thing in the heat of the day. If there is rain in the forecast you may want to bring rain gear along to be on the safe side. If we are facing big storms we will discuss our options that day and make a decision together whether to go, not go or reschedule.
Do I need to make reservations?
We highly recommended to book your charter as soon as you know your date in order to avoid not being able to fish! We usually book weeks and even months in advance, especially during peak season.
