Can we bring our own rod & tackle?
All of our trips come fully equipped with all necessary tackle but you may certainly bring your own if you wish. We fish with all custom made Cousin gear and our reels are supplied by Alan Tani.
What do I need to bring with me on my charter?
We suggest dressing in layers as early mornings tend to be chilly, but the temperatures rise as the day progresses. Sunblock and a hat are essential even on cloudy days and we always recommend bringing a camera. Please wear something with a non-slick sole that can get wet. If you are susceptible to seasickness, plan to take motion sickness medication before your trip.
