What will we catch?
The answer to this question can change daily. It is recommended to call and ask what is being caught right now on the length of trip you are booking. The captain will know what is in season and what is biting at this time of year. If you want to target a specific species please let the captain know when you call to book a trip. It is recommended to fish for what is biting, don't expect to catch a Blue Marlin on a 6 hr trip.

What weather would warrant a cancellation?
We typical cancel trips if the forecast calls for seas over 6 ft. At that point it’s not enjoyable or safe to be offshore.

This is a difficult question to answer because there is always something to fish for. But summer months of June July August and September typically have less winds are the most favorable for getting out on the water.
