FAQ

G: How long are your boat trips?
A: You can choose between four or five hour trips.

Q: Can I extend the time of my trip?
A: You may extend your trip for $100/hour when available. You can decide this on the spot, but we may not be available for longer trips due to prior commitments.

Q: What do you provide?
A: We provide everything you need for your trip except food/drinks, fishing licenses, appropriate clothing, and customary gratuity. All fishing gear and tackle/lures is provided. We do have complimentary bottled water on the boat.

Q: How many people can I bring?
A: We hacve a maximum capacity of two people (Not including the captain) in our boat. This maximizes space and keeps everyone comfortable.

Q: Do small children count?
A: Yes, we are responsible for everyone who comes on our boat.

Q: If I want to keep fish, do I need to bring a cooler?
A: Yes, but leave it in your vehicle. We will have a cooler and ice on the boat.

Q: Do you offer fish cleaning?
A: Unfortunately, no. New Hampshire law requires that “The head and tail must remain intact while on or leaving the waters of the state.”
We can gut your salmon or trout for you, but don’t recommend it if you plan to fillet them, as they are easier to fillet when intact.

Q: What if it rains during our trip?
A: We highly recommened wearing raingear, not just a rain coat. (Don’t worry, we will be out there with you and the fish don’t care, they’re already wet.)
Check the weather for the day of your trip and dress appropriately. The only time we cancel due to weather is when it becomes impossible or dangerous to be on the water. Ultimately, we make the final call.

Q: Do you pick clients up at their docks?
A: We do not. Our marina offers complimentary parking for our clients.
