We use heavy and light tackle depending on the technique, all your fishing gear is provided in cost of the trip.

You’ll want to bring your Florida Fishing License with you; just a reminder: those under 16 years old and older than 65 years old do not require fishing licenses. If you need to purchase a license, these are available online or at the nearby bait & tackle shop.

Passengers should also bring along food and drinks for the day (water is important to stay hydrated in the hot Florida sun). Polarized glasses, a hat, sunscreen, and bug spray are also recommended. Captain Bill is great with kids and families, so bring the crew and let’s get you hooked up!
