have a hard and fast policy that prohibits the use of
drugs, alcohol, or radios on the boat. Catching fish
will provide you with all the excitement you need!
I take any medications?
Cronin is first aid and CPR
certified. Please bring any medications you may possibly
require. Advise the Captain of any medical
considerations prior to departure from the dock.
What fishing equipment
do you recommend if I want to bring my own?
For fly fishing you can easily make due with an 8 or 9
weight rod with intermediate or sinking line. Having a
spare spool is always a good idea. A stripping basket is
extremely helpful but if you don’t have one we can
provide it. The Captain has a selection of custom tied
flies that he will recommend you use depending on the
fishing or you can use your own.
For spin fishing we recommend a 7’ light to medium
action rod with a reel that provides even and consistent
drag. Lures will be available on the boat or you may
bring your own favorites.
How many fish can I
expect to catch?
will do all we can to put you on to fish. Your ability
to catch fish in this specialized environment will
depend on your own expertise. Your success will depend
on how you capitalize on the opportunities we provide.
Fishing is a challenging sport for beginners, seasoned
pros, and everyone in between. There’s a well used
saying out there that goes: “if you caught a fish every
time you went it would be called catching and not
fishing”. The Captain will observe your ability
level and guide you appropriately.
