WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH MY CHARTER?
All trips include crew with a USCG licensed Captain, rods, tackle, live bait, snacks, beer drinks and fish processing. 3/4 days and overnights include breakfast and lunch. All longer trips include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All required licenses are also included.
DO I NEED TO TIP THE CAPTAIN AND CREW AFTER A CHARTER? IF SO, WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT?
While tipping is not required, it is customary to tip the captain and the crew. The standard amount is 15% to 25% of trip cost.
CAN WE BRING A COOLER ON BOARD?
No. Please do not bring a cooler as they slide around when the boat moves and become dangerous. We provide all the soda, beer, and water you could possibly need and we can always fulfill special requests.
Can we bring our own food and beverages?
Of course, although we prefer you not bring glass bottles.
The Sauerfish comes fully equipped with the necessary tackle but you may certainly bring your own.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN TACKLE?
WHERE DOES THE BOAT DEPART FROM?

What do I need to bring with me on the charter?
We suggest dressing in layers as early mornings tend to be chilly, but the temperatures rise as the day progresses. Sunblock and a hat are essential even on cloudy days and we always recommend bringing a camera. We do not recommend flip flops due to their slippery nature. Boots are more suitable but if you do not have boots, please wear something with a non-slick sole that can get wet. Also, if you are susceptible to seasickness, plan to take Bonine, Dramamine, or another similar motion sickness medication. Please keep in mind that you need to take motion sickness medication 12 hours before the boat leaves in order for the medicine to be effective.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT SEASICKNESS?
Seasickness is a form of motion sickness characterized by a feeling of nausea and, in extreme cases, vertigo experienced after spending time on the water. It is typically brought on by the rocking motion of the boat. Some people who are particularly vulnerable to the condition can feel seasick simply by setting foot on a boat, even if the vessel is in dry dock. Others are relatively immune, or become immune through exposure.
Over-the-counter and prescription medications such as dramamine and scopolamine (as transdermal patches and tablets) are readily available. Ginger capsules are also considered effective in preventing motion sickness as well as wearing special motion sickness wristbands.
