It is hard fishing, but if you catch a bluefin that is over 100 lbs you will be in for the fight of your life. Our experienced deckhands and Captain will ensure that if you hook it, you will have the best chance to land it. We have fighting belts and a fighting chair and harness if you hook the big one. If by morning we want more action, we go on the troll with a kite and a gummy flyer flying fish. Both of these tactics are proven. We also carry 4 scoops of bait, just in case. Includes all meals and snacks, soda, water, rods, reels, tackle, and bait.
The only thing NOT included is a fishing license and any alcoholic beverages you wish to bring with you. (Coolers are OK!)
