*Regular customers or referrals may not require a deposit on fishing trips, however all cancellation terms will apply.*Guide fees include fuel, ice, tackle and expertise, beverages, meals are not included.
- If I'm not available for the fishing dates you want, or if I’m not the right guide for the type of fishing you want to do; live bait tarpon or offshore for example. I have provided contact info for few of my guide/friends that I highly recommend for fly and light tackle and offshore fishing.
