Full day- $650​​
 ​​​​​​​    I collect a $150 deposit at the time of booking. You may use a check or PayPal. Your deposit must be received two weeks in advance of your day to reserve your spot. You may reschedule up to two weeks in advance and I will happily roll your deposit over to a new day of your choosing. You may also cancel for a full refund with more than two week's notice. If you cancel within two weeks, I will be forced to keep your deposit.

    As captain, I reserve the sole right to cancel or postpone any trip due to inclement weather. If we cancel a trip due to weather, you may reschedule the day. If you choose not to, I will refund your deposit. If we are forced off the water by weather, the price of the day may be adjusted based on the length of our trip. When we leave the dock, you will be charged for a half day. 

    In the very rare instance that a client is more than 45 minutes late and cannot be reached, I will leave and cancel the day with no deposit refund. If you are running more than 15 minutes late, please give me a heads up. That said, please be on time, as the tides wait for no one, and I hate to miss a window of great fishing.


    In the event that a client breaks or damages a piece of equipment through anything other than normal use, they will be responsible for repair costs. This can run from $50-100 for tackle.

    If you have any questions or concerns about these policies, feel free to ask. Though these are the stated policies, I may make reasonable exceptions at my discretion.
Click to make a payment
You can pay your deposit and trip balance by credit card or check. If you choose to pay by card, you will be assessed the 3% additional processing f ee.   You'll recieve the password to access this page when you cofirm your date with the captain – no going rogue with deposits!
Gratuity
It's a conversation few guides or clients want to have, but a bit of advance planning can eliminate any discomfort. Any size gratuity is greatly appreciated, but not required. As guides, a tip at the end of the day is a token of appreciation for a job well done. The extra cash helps greatly to, in my case, save for the future and cover unexpected expenses. About three-quarters of clients tip, and the standard tip runs $40-60. Whatever you feel comfortable with is appreciated; if you prefer, for any reason, not to tip, that decision is completely acceptable.

Fall Fishing Policies

Our reservation and deposit policies must reflect the more difficult logistics of fall fishing. A non-refundable deposit of $200 will be taken to reserve your date. As is the case with all other trips, the captain reserves the ​​ sole right to cancel a trip due to weather with deposit refund. We'll be sure to bail before conditions cross the line from unpleasant to unsafe, but coping with weather is the norm in the late season.
