Charter Details

  • I provide everything we will need while on the boat including a cooler with ice and bottled water. You will need to bring a camera, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, shoes that can get a little wet. Also, food and drinks you may prefer (no glass), rain gear for summer storms and a windbreaker in the fall months.
  • Fishing licenses are included on all charters
  • If you want to bring food & beverages, we will provide a cooler with ice & dry storage for other goods. (Beer is allowed, preferably in cans).
  • We provide all fishing rods, tackle, bait, Ziploc bags for your cleaned filets and ice.
  • If you plan on keeping fish, don’t forget to bring a cooler to transport your catch. Our home marina, Ozona Fish Camp, sells small Styrofoam coolers while supplies last.

Departure Times and Location

  • Unless other arrangements are made, charters will depart from Ozona Fish Camp located in Ozona, Florida, 20 minutes to the north of Clearwater, Fl. Positioned directly on St Joseph’s sound, the marina store provides snacks, drinks, and fishing tackle, as well a multitude of other items such as hats and shirts. Once back from your fishing trip, you can relax on the patio with a cold beverage while I clean your fish.
  • Starting times may differ depending on the time of year. Normally, from March through October, charters start between 7 AM and 8 AM. During the winter between 8 AM and 8:30 AM.
  • For live bait charters, I catch bait before picking up my clients. If I’m not already cleaned up and waiting for you at the dock, I will be there shortly.
