All rates include bait, tackle, and boating gear.
Inland/freshwater charter boats cannot hold a boat license for all clients.
Each individual 16 years of age or older will need to hold a VA freshwater fishing license. You can purchase this online, Wal-Mart, or a local tackle store. The online link is listed below; you only need to purchase a “freshwater fish statewide”, out of state freshwater license are also available. Both licenses offer temporary and full year.
All children of 13 years of age or younger by state law are required to have and wear at all times a life jacket.
I do provide life jackets for adults and children, but the U.S.C.G Type 1 issued life jackets I’m required to provide are bulky and uncomfortable. I do suggest a simple, comfortable life jacket to be brought along with you for your children 13 and under.
Things to bring with you:
- Fishing license
- Comfortable life jacket for children
- Rain gear, heavy jackets, and gloves for foul or cold weather.
- Your drinks and snacks, and please limit to a smaller size cooler. No glass or liquor please. Beer is okay!
- I am licensed to charter up to 6 people for hire.
