    • The all inclusive packages, our most popular trip available, starts at $695.00 per person/2 days/1 night and includes everything above and lodging, all meals, beverages, snacks.  In the past 10 years these all inclusive trips have been the most popular with my clients, and for many reasons, here's a few reason why.   First, we are not relying on just the one day for the fishing to be good, with the changing weather patterns, a multi-day stay increases the chances of that perfect day on the water.  Also, there is no set time frame on the water, a typical 1 day trip will start at 8am, and is an 8 hour trip.  With a multi-day stay, we can really tailor your trip to the exact times when the big ones are biting.  An example of this is if you are out on a multi-day stay and the big bite is between 7am to 1pm, then we go in for lunch and some rest, then go back out around 4pm till whenever we get tired out.  This means we could be out for up to 12 hours a day chasing those Big Mac Monsters, even at night!   However, because these trips are so popular, please contact well in advance to make lodging arrangement.
