A message to our for hire captains.

Please understand this is a voluntary effort. If you are a charter captain or guide, we understand that you’re job is to provide your clients a full experience on the Bay while adhering to the existing fisheries regulations. This effort is for recreational fishermen.   Anyone else interested in joining is welcome but should not feel pressured to do so.  Recognizing that many already do it, commercial guides can also do their part by discussing with less-frequent clients that a successful day of fishing doesn’t necessarily have to mean a full fish box.  Before you leave the dock, talk to your clients about their expectations and point out that they don’t necessarily have to keep all of the fish they catch if they don’t want to.  If they want to, no problem.  A great day on the water can simply be about being out with family and friends.
