What should I bring?
You should bring your lunch, drinks and plenty of sunscreen. We
recommend Smart Shield sunscreen but your choice is fine. Also a
lightweight shirt sunglasses, and a hat would be desirable.
What about credit card charges?
We are happy to take credit cards, unfortunately we do have to
add a small convienence fee on a credit card charge.
Since we fish in shallow water usually we
don't have anyone to get seasick. If you are VERY sensitive we recommend
a good night sleep, no alcohol the night before, and light meals for
dinner and breakfast. There are several over the counter medications or
wristbands. Ask you local pharmacist. If these make you drowsy, ask your
doctor about prescription motion sickness medication.
What about a tip?
If you think the Captain was very
efficient and the service was good , 10% - 15% of the total is very
What if our party is larger than 4-5 people?
We have availability to put approx. 100 fishermen on the water at any
given time with advance notice. Large parties are no problem.
Do I need to bring any tackle or bait?
No. All are provided for you. Unless you want to wade fish, then
you do need your rod and reel and wading equipment.
Do you provide fish cleaning?
Yes. We clean the fish for you once we return to
the dock. Your choice: boneless fillets, Redfish "half-shells" (ready for
the pit) Just don't forget a cooler to take them home in!
Is a deposit required?
Yes. A credit card # is required on all trips, the deposit is $200.
What if I need to cancel my trip?
Our cancellation policy is below. In the past, we at Redfish Charters
have been very fair for our clients. This cancellation policy is the
result of the behavior from some of our customers and we are sorry for the
inconvenience this may cause to those who are good clients. We hope that
you understand this new situation and we hope to serve you for many years
1. When a booking is made by the customer there is NO
refund on the deposit UNLESS the trip is
cancelled prior to 14 days. That's what the
deposit is for, remember the Capt. has turned other trips down for that
date and the date is being held just for YOU, to hold your fishing day.
2. If the trip is rescheduled due to the Capt. deeming
the weather to be unfit or unsafe, the deposit will be due immediately in
the amount of $200 per boat. If the credit card was used to secure the
deposit it will be billed immediately plus a 3% processing fee and this
deposit will apply to your future fishing trip booked WITHIN
30 days. Remember
you have to reschedule your fishing trip within 30 days for
this deposit to apply.
3. All cancellations done in less than 14 days, will be charged
the deposit amount of $200 per boat. If billed to your credit card a 3%
processing fee will also be added, and a new deposit is required for the
next fishing trip.
4. No booking will be made without a valid Credit card,
(the card will be verified immediately), money order or check
received within 5 days of the time of booking the trip. The current
deposit amount is $200 per boat for a fishing trip.

maximum of 5 days to allow for postal delivery.
