Open Boat/Shared Charter vs. Charter?
OPEN BOAT/Shared Charter trips will be posted on this website.¬† What is an ‚Äúopen boat‚ÄĚ trip?¬† An open boat trip occurs when the boat is not chartered by a group, however we will be taking a trip on the selected date at the captain's discretion, and "spots" are opened up to interested clients.¬† An announcement of these trips will occur via email, and on this website.¬†
-->These trips cater to "solo" anglers, who don't intend to charter the boat and will fish with other "solo" anglers, not groups of people who intend on chartering the boat on a given date.
OPEN BOAT POLICIES/REMINDERS:
****Checks, money orders, and cash ONLY.
****BAIT AND TACKLE IS SUPPLIED! (FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR OWN GEAR THAT'S APPROPRIATE FOR THE TRIP)
****RESERVATIONS ARE ACCEPTED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS; THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
****ALL CATCHES ARE SPLIT (AND SHARED)¬†EQUALLY¬†BY THE¬†ANGLERS AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE TRIP ONCE WE ARE DONE FILLETING THE CATCH - EVERYONE WILL GO HOME WITH FISH!!!
***REMINDER:¬† When you reserve a spot on an open boat trip, it is your responsibility that the spot you reserved is filled, even if you cannot make it for the trip for some unknown reason.¬† Cancellations are accepted until 24 hours before departure, by phone or email.¬† Of course there are exceptions, but please adhere to this policy.¬† If a "no-show" situation occurs, or if there are untimely cancellations, there are cases where the individual(s) who reserved the spot(s) will be asked to remit 50% of the fare, since NO DEPOSITS are taken for open boat trips.¬† For all intents and purposes, once you book a trip, you are giving us your word that you will show up!!¬† Also, ALL BOAT POLICIES LISTED UNDER "BOAT POLICIES" APPLY ON OPEN BOAT TRIPS - PLEASE READ THEM!***
****Fare includes:¬† mate's gratuity, use of XL or Buddha Custom Rods & AVET Reels, ALL Tackle (rigs, lead, jigs, etc), fillet/packaging of catch, storage of catch, ice, use of all the boat's facilities.
