Weather condition can really effect the outcome of your trip. While we strive to make sure we can accommodate your needs we also feel that it is our duty to ensure that you have the best trip possible. For that reason our captains have the authority to reschedule your trip due to unsafe or unfavorable weather conditions. We will work with you to find a time that best suites your needs. Once we are on the water if conditions become unsafe and the captains decide to cancel the trip you will only be responsible for your deposit.
We recommend wearing a pair of loose fitting blue jeans and thin long sleeve shirt. If it under 80 degrees during the day we recommend to bring a light jacket as it will be cooler out on the water. Open toe shoes/crocs are not recommended attendees should wear tennis shoes with good grip. Weather can quickly change in the Louisiana Marsh. So please come prepared with a rain jacket or a dry pair of clothes to be left in your vehicle.
Safety is the most important thing on our trips. Bows and arrows are dangerous if not used properly. Always keep the arrow pointed down and not anywhere else. All arrows must be unstrung while the boat is in motion.
You are NOT allowed to shoot at stingrays, alligators, ducks or bass. Please remember that redfish must be over 16’ in order to keep so if the fish looks to small please do not take a shot at it.
Unruly conduct on the boat ill not be tolerated and the captain has a right to sit any guest down and stop them from fishing. If the trip must be cancelled no refund will be given.
