To contribute we:
Encourage you to only keep a feed or maximum 3 fish on a Bay fishing charter.
Strictly keep to the regulations carefully releasing undersized fish and keep to the catch limits.
We encourage Tag and Release fishing, on all species (both on big and small game (marlin and Kingfish)
We do Game Pitch Baiting; towing hookless lures to tease the marlin and when they are attracted we switch baiting which needs a bit of timing and teamwork! This technique does not injure the fish as much and tag and release is even more relevant!
Environmental friendly products on board.
All cleaning products are environmental friendly biodegradable. Including cleaning products for rods, reels, towels, cabin and toilet.
The soft bait is organic instead of the normal plastic that will pollute the sea if you loose it and the fish if it gets it.
