Trip Lengths

Half Day:

This 4 hour trip departing in the morning is a good one for first-time anglers or people traveling on vacation, a business trip or just passing through the area.

Three Quarters Day:

This 6 hour trip is popular with people who have not fished often enough to withstand a full day, but want more than a half day. It's a long enough day, departing in the morning, to give you enough time to adjust your fishing style.

Full Day:

The full day (8 hour) trip is clearly the favorite for most people. It's straight through, 8 hours of fishing. Make sure to bring lunch or a snack for the energy to keep plugging away.
