There will be two boats at the disposal of club members divided into 6 members per boat. If 12 members signup we will be going in tandem. There is actually no limit to the number of persons that can sign up for either outing, however only a maximum of 12 can go at one time. 

The full day fishing consists of a full day 9 hours of fishing or a half day 6 hour trip. This outing is for adults or youth 12 years of age or older. A parent or adult guardian must accompany those 17 and under. You may bring a cooler with your own drinks and snacks. CB Charters will provide everything needed for fishing as well as a full time mate whose sole responsibility is to assist everyone including those that may not have any prior fishing experience. The mate will also clean and package fish to take home.

Costs & Charter Agreements - Because the costs are on a boat rather than a per person basis if someone, finds that he or she must cancel, it will be that person’s responsibility to find an alternate participant otherwise that will be unfair to the other five persons in the same boat as the per boat fee will be divided by 5 instead of 6 participants. Signups will be made first come first serve for specific dates and time.  Fishing dates are typically throught the month of August.
