Some questions you may have about bowfishing trips
-We can bowfish during the day but it is usually not as successful because the fish are more likley to see you coming but we will gladly run a day charter and often do well.
-You may drink alcohol just shoot straight and don’t shoot me! Everybody has to be of age and if I say you are done, you are done. Please no glass bottles.
-You may smoke in certain areas of the boat but you are not allowed to smoke while bowfishing and all butts must be put in a bottle or can. NO SMOKING IS PREFERRED!
-A non-refundable credit card handling fee of 4% will be added to all charges.
-The final payment is due in CASH at the time of the trip. High bills and exact change please. A credit card can be charged with the full amount before the trip but the fee still applies. Checks can be accepted in advance but not during time of trip.
-Fish are not guaranteed and the weather conditions will have a great affect on success. I can not control how good someone shoots. Hunting is hunting and we do our best. I have never had a charter where we did not see some fish.
-When it says $600 for up to 4 people that means if you have 1 or 2 people the price is still $600. We offer walk-ons for $175 pp for singles if you are interested. You could possibly be added to another group if you call Bonita 251-747-4600
-I can easily do trips with more than 4 people but they WILL cost more: $150.00 per person over 4.
-The night inshore trips in the fan boat are a max of 6 people per boat. We can switch people out and such but do not show up at the dock with 9 people all wanting to get on one boat. If you shoot or not it does not matter to me and the prices do not change.
-Ask the captain about licenses before the trip. Most of the time they are included.
-Fish cleaning is $2 per fish.
-Videos are $100 filmed, edited, and placed on youtube. I must know in advance.
-You will need hand towels, rain gear, any drinks besides water that is not in glass bottles, camera, license if needed, cap light, and anything you may need in a hurry. Some of these items can be supplied for purchase, please let us know in advance if needed.
-Many people get messy and bloody on the charters.
-If the inshore bowfishing charters must be cut short due to weather conditions the due will be $150 for every hour fished until ended. If it is cut short on your request the balance is due.
-Trip hours include run time, photos, fish cleaning, and any instruction of the captain. If you would like 4 full hours of fishing you may want to add an hour.
-Added costs are due to driving time. Pascagoula, MS +$200, Destin +$200, Dauphin Island +$200, Navarre +$100, Pensacola Beach +$50. Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola, and Mobile are all usual price.
Stuff happens. We understand that, but we need you to understand that cancellations are crippling to a full time fishing charter operation.
We collect a deposit to reserve your date and time slot. This deposit is non-refundable unless the fishing charter is cancelled by the Captain due to bad weather or unforeseen boat problems. All other cancellations forfeit the deposit. There is nothing we can do to control the weather and your safety is our priority. If storms or severe weather prevents us from fishing you are welcome to use the deposit towards booking another date or we can refund your entire deposit.
When you reserve a fishing charter, we do not book anyone else for that time slot.
Equipment damage or Loss. You are responsible for loss or damage you do to equipment that belongs to the boat and must replace in kind at market value determined by the Captain/Owner. You are also responsible for any damages you or your party may do to the boat or any part of the boat. If you walk away with equipment you are responsible for payment of that equipment. If a piece of our equipment malfunctions, or exhausts itself due to circumstances beyond our control, you are not responsible for that.
