Salt N Light Charters

FAQ

  1. Why do fishing charters cost so much? Maintaining and operating a safe, properly outfitted top of the line fishing boat is expensive and today’s fuel costs alone are staggering. There are many additional costs that one never sees on a guided fishing trip. For example, charter insurance, license, bait, boat maintenance, and many other factors. You get what you pay for in charter boats, and I strive to keep my costs down to give you the best value in the area. The excitement of chartering your own guide, catching fish and having a tremendous on water experience while making memories to last a lifetime… is well worth the expense.
  2. I've never done this before, how do I get started? Give me a call or send me an email, ask me any questions you have. We will try and find you the best fishing package that will suit your needs.

  3. Is the boat safe for me and my family? Yes. I am federally licensed by the United States Coast Guard and State Licensed by Florida Parks & Wildlife. Also, my boat has many safety features and I will brief you on at the beginning of the trip about where to find life jackets, first aid kit, and fire extinguishers. For communications I am equipped with a cell phone. Don't worry, so far I’ve never had to execute an emergency plan and my safety record stands at 100%. You can enjoy the trip knowing that you’re safe and secure with a seasoned professional.

  4. Does your boat have a bathroom on it? No, although, if needed we’re usually not too far from a public facility.

  5. What should I bring with me? Depending on the length of your trip consider bringing food, camera, hat, sun block and a rain jacket if the weather looks like it could rain. My boat is equipped with an ice chest for your food and drinks, I also supply water. If you would like to keep a few fish or all of your fish for dinner you might consider a small cooler to keep in your vehicle for the trip home.

  6. What kind of bait do you use? I use Shrimp, Shiners, Pin Fish, Jigs and assorted artificial lures. The bait used depends on the type of fishing we do and the time of year. Live baits are always best usually resulting in more numbers and larger fish.

  7. How do I know if the boat is available on the date I want? When you call to reserve one or more days, I can usually make arrangements to accommodate you. The sooner you make your booking the better.
