For those unfamiliar with Florida's Emerald Coast, please note that our area does not have year round warm weather like South Florida. We have four distinct seasons including a short winter with a few light freezes. It's particularly beautiful here during our cool months with crystal-clear days and nights. You just have to remember to bring enough clothes to stay warm on the water. Check with us prior to your trip for advice on what to pack.
You will need polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, and we suggest foul-weather gear.† Neither of our boats has a top, so prepare to be out in the elements all day. Please wear shoes with white or light soles. We will ask you to remove black-soled shoes prior to boarding.
We provide water and a cooler with ice. Bring your favorite drinks and food unless you would like to pull into a restaurant for lunch.
In addition to providing all required fishing licenses, we have tackle for all types of fishing. Feel free, however, to bring your favorite rods, reels, flies, lures, etcetera.
Of course, we never get tired of talking about fishing gear. If you are just starting or are looking to upgrade your current gear, talk to Captain Baz first. He works with a select group of manufacturers and will steer you in the right direction. Sponsorships and endorsements include:
