Recommended Packing
Polarized glasses — We'll be sight fishing and so polarized glasses are a must. Sunscreen — There is no shade on the boat so you'll need sunscreen and protective clothing to protect you from the South Florida sun. Food and Drink — I provide a cooler full of ice and water, but you need to bring whatever else you'd like to eat and drink for the day. Rain gear — I try to keep us out of the chop and rain, but sometimes its unavoidable, so rain gear is a good idea. Camera — Most of the fishing we will do is catch and release, so you'll want to capture your memories on camera.
Required Items
Nothing additional needed.
