How many people can I take per trip?

We are USCG certified to carry up to six passengers, sorry no exceptions. The cost of the charter is usually split up by your party , however this is your responsibility.

What do I need to bring?

Everything will be provided except what you would like to eat or drink for the day. It is usually a good idea to bring all of your party’s food aboard in one big cooler that is put in the boats salon, that can then be used at the end of the day for your catch . Ice is also provided. You may want to bring a camera for pictures of the ones that didn’t get away. Appropriate clothing for the weather is your personal responsibility (rain-gear, sneakers (deck shoes), and sunglasses are suggested).

What do I do with my catch?

All fish belong to you. The mate and captain, nor you, are allowed to clean fish while at sea. Fish cleaning is provided at the marina for 38 cents per pound. We have no financial interest in this operation, but it is a great convenience and service to our customers. Our slip agreement does not allow fish cleaning at our dock. The service will pick up your fish at the dock and it will be ready in about 1 hour, at which time you pay them directly. Please inform the captain of your interest in this service , so that he may call them on your way in , to minimize your wait. We do recommend the cleaning service unless you particularly enjoy cleaning fish. There is NO fish cleaning at the dock. Please take from the ocean only what you can put to good use. I hate to think of throwing away good fish that has been in the freezer too long. If you catch more fish than you wish to take home or pay to have cleaned, please keep the captain and mate in mind. The only fresh fish we get to eat is from a satisfied customer!

Are trophy mounts available?

The OLuckyMe can make arrangements for any of your trophy mounts while not having to utilize your fish. Please ask the captain for further information .

How much should I tip the First Mate?

Mates work for tips. A first mate that does a good job of looking after your needs should receive a tip of 10 to 15%. If you are not happy with the mate, please let the captain know.


We encourage responsible use of the fish resource.I hope my children have the chance to enjoy what I have been so fortunate to experience. Billfish are generally tagged and then released.

What do I do about weather cancellations and deposits?

Call for more information regarding your situation.Typically, if we can’t go because of weather or mechanical situations (Captain’s decision), we will first try to rebook the trip and if that is not possible, your deposit will be returned.
