Tournament quality rods and reels can be rented for $15 per rod for the day, and we recommend bringing 2lb or 2.5lb trolling weights for the day. If not, Captain Phil can provide weights at $7 and $8 respectively. We practice a variety of fishing techniques such as bottom fishing, drift fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, and light tackle fishing.
