Are kids allowed?

We specialize in trips for families with kids. We have special equipment that allows them to reel in even the biggest fish. You can see what that looks like here https://lifishcharters.com/2023/08/amazing-fishing-for-kids-newbies-and-everyone-else. Children under 12 need a life preserver and we supply them. We can customize the start time to best suite your group. We realize it can be hard to get kids up at sunrise or keep them up after dark. We can also shorten the trip (reduced rate) if you feel 5-6 hours is too long.

How rough are the waters?

The western Long Island Sound is sheltered from the wind on three sides.  The waters are typically very calm all year and often flat-calm.  Only an easterly breeze might make it uncomfortable.  Fortunately, there are loads of places to fish even with a strong easterly.  If you feel uncomfortable at all, just tell the captain and he will move the boat to a more sheltered location.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes! We are dog-friendly. We assume your dog is also friendly and has been on boats before. They do not count as a passenger. We do not have life preservers for them.

Is a deposit required?

A deposit ranging from $300-$450 (based on the type of trip) is required. It is refundable if the weather does not cooperate.

Are gratuities/tips included?

Gratuities/tips are not included in the price. They are customary, but not required. They can be paid in cash or along with the balance of your trip (just tell us how much). Our crew works really hard (before and during the trip) to ensure your trip is as good as it can be.

Do you give fishing lessons?

Do you supply bait and tackle?

Yes! We supply everything. All you need to bring is whatever you want to eat or drink.
