Fish Flat Out Charter Boat Fishing FAQ

Is there a bathroom on the charter boat?

There are no bathrooms on the charter boats, however there are often bathrooms located at different parks and boat ramps in the area depending on where we are fishing that day.

How many people can fit on your charter boat?

We have a 6 passenger charter boat. Meaning you can have a party of 6 people in your group. Other charter fishing boats can be arranged to accommodate larger groups.

While on the charter fishing trip do I have to wear a life jacket?

The only people required to wear a life jacket are children under the age of 6. I will however have enough life jackets to fit everyone on the charter boat as well as the required United Stated Coast Guard safety equipment.

What do we do if it rains?

The fish still bite in the rain, however if the weather is unsafe, for example heavy downpours, lightning, or high winds, we will make every effort to reschedule. Weather cancellations are at the discretion of the captain.

Will we be the only ones on the charter fishing boat?

Yes, these trips are private so only your party will be on the boat.

What should we bring on the charter fishing trip?

I provide everything you need to fish including your license. All you will need is whatever you would like to eat or drink while you are on the trip and a cooler if you would like to take fish home with you. I will provide a 45 qt cooler and ice for your drinks and snacks. Some groups will bring an entire case of water and enough food to feed and army, remember the majority of trips are 4-6 hours so try to bring what you will consume on the trip to save room in the cooler.

What should we wear?

You should bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and the proper attire. Layers are best any time of the year in Florida. Please try to apply spray on sunscreen outside of the boat as it makes the deck very slippery. Flip-flops are ok as well as non-marking shoes.

How far out do you go?

There is only so much that can be said in a short charter fishing FAQ, however, on an inshore charter fishing trip we will stay in the protected inter-coastal waterways from Pensacola Bay to Navarre Sound. On the near-shore/reef charter boat fishing trips we will venture out no further than the state water line, which is 9 nautical miles. Again these trips vary by weather so we only go when it is safe to do so.
