What time do you leave for a fishing charter?
Please check the rates page for departure times
What should we bring for our fishing charter?
This will vary depending on the time of year. In general you will want to bring water or other beverages of your choice. Some food to snack on or have for lunch. Cameras, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen are encouraged for sun protection.
Polarized sunglasses are the best for seeing the fish. Remember that there is a good chance of water splashing.
Clothing will vary by season and weather. If fishing in the earlier spring or later in the fall, consider proper water repellent equipment to stay dry and warm. In the summer, lighter clothes can be worn.
What about fish cleaning?
Captain Mason will clean your daily catch and put it in Ziploc bags. You may want to bring a cooler to transport your fish home. This cooler will remain in your vehicle until we return to the dock.
Do I need a fishing license?
No, you do not need a fishing license. Southern Breeze is a fully-licensed charter boat.
Do I need to bring my own rod/reel and fishing equipment?
No, you do not need to bring any fishing tackle. Captain Mason supplies all your fishing needs.
What about the weather?
Mother Nature provides weather from time to time here off Cape Lookout. Captain Ralph is always monitoring the weather as any captain should. Please touch base with the captain to determine if the trip needs to be rescheduled or cancelled due to weather.
