Booking Policy (please read)

  • If you would like to make a reservation or inquire about availability please call us at 724-321-6729.
  • All reservations must be confirmed on the phone and secured with a $100.00 deposit.
  • The reservation can be secured by credit card.
  • Payment for the fishing charter minus the deposit is collected on the day of the fishing trip in cash or by credit card.

Cancellation Policy (please read)

  • The $100.00 deposit is to reserve your date and time slot.  This deposit is non-refundable unless the fishing trip is cancelled by  the Captain due to bad weather or unforeseen boat problems. This  cancellation is made at the dock on the day of the trip, only at the  Captain’s discretion. All other cancellations forfeit the 100.00  deposit.
  • Our booking  policy is to meet at the boat at the agreed time and place on the day of  the trip. If the fishing trip is cancelled by the Captain due to bad  weather, we will try to re-book your fishing trip for a better day if  the customer’s schedule allows, otherwise we will cheerfully refund your  entire 100.00 deposit.
  • Cancellations  by customers with less than a 48-hour phone call notice and no shows at  the dock by customers on the day of the fishing trip will be charged to  their credit card the full amount of the length charter slot they have  reserved. When you reserve a fishing trip, we do not book anyone else  for that time slot.
