Remember that while all fishing equipment can and will be provided, guests are welcome to bring their own personal tackle. We recommend bringing these additional items:


  • All guests should pack a quality, light-weight rain jacket.
  • Light colored long pants and long sleeved shirts will protect you from the sun. Be careful about wearing shorts and tee shirts all day on a flats skiff, especially if you are unaccustomed to the tropical heat.
  • A good hat with a bill makes it easier to see fish and keeps the sun off your face.
  • A buff and sun gloves can also make a huge difference.
  • You will be standing for most of the day, so been sure to wear comfortable, soft-soled shoes.


  • Perhaps the most important item will be your sunglasses. We recommend a brown, copper, or amber lens.
  • Sunscreen – Be sure to use 50+ spf. Also bring good lip balm or chapstick.


  • A camera
  • A waterproof bag to store your equipment and dry clothes.
  • Clippers and needle-nosed pliers
  • Hook sharpener
  • Reel cover to protect your gear during the boat ride
