Day before your fishing trip: Check in is at 5:00 PM. When you arrive, go check in at the office and you can purchase your fishing license, if needed. Dinner is served at 7:00 PM in the Dining Room. The managers will meet with you at dinner and give you a breakdown of how the next morning will go.
Day of your fishing trip: That morning, the managers will wake you up about 1 hour and a half before sunrise. Breakfast and coffee will be served in the Dining Room. You will leave to go fishing after breakfast. A lunch bag is provided on the boat. You will arrive back to the dock no later than 3:00 PM. Once you get back to the dock, your guide will count the fish and take a picture. Your guide will then filet, wash and bag your fish. While your guide is doing that you can go up to your room, get cleaned up, take a shower if you would like and get your stuff ready to head back home. Your guide will bring your fish back to your room when he is done. We ask that you do not put fish in the refrigerators. Ice chest are available in the Dock Shop. Once everyone is completely out of the room, you will then go check out in the office.
What to bring: Rods (with 10-12 lb test), sun block, rain gear, ice chest, and a camera would come in handy. We also sell these items in the Dock Shop.
Beverages: Soft drinks and water are available for you on the boat. We do not serve alcohol, but you are welcome to have it anywhere on our premises. Alcoholic beverages are allowed on your fishing trip.
Dock Shop: Our gift shop will be open from 8:00 AM until 7:00 PM. You can find souvenirs, fishing and hunting supplies, toiletries, ice chests, etc. You may purchase items at the time you get them, or you may put them on your “tab”.
Lodging: All rooms are fully furnished with linens and towels. If for any reason, you need more towels, please let us know. We ask that you please do not take any of the towels on the boats or use them to clean guns.
Fishing off the Dock: Our dock is available for fishing in the evenings during your stay. We also have lights on the dock for fishing at night.
Tipping: We are often asked about tipping and what is a fair or good tip. Most fishing enthusiasts know that tipping fishing guides and the lodge staff is customary, but not mandatory. Our captains usually receive the tips directly from the guests and if on the Night Stalker, will share with his deck hand. Our guides average $100 per trip/per day. Our Kitchen staff (Cooks & Servers) and Housekeeping pool their tips and divide them equally. Average tip per day per guest is $5. All tips may be put on your “tab” if you wish.
Comments: We encourage you to tell us any comments you may have, both positive and negative. We feel this is the best way we can make improvements to making your visit here the best it can be.
