Check dates with the Operator
We recommend checking dates with the Captain before booking your trip.


Fish Policy; On a private charter the crew of the Play n Hooky will gladly split the days catch with you up to 50 pounds of whole fish. On a share charter everyone will be offered an eating portion (approximately 2 to 4 pounds) depending on the days catch. All fish weighing over 80 pounds will not be cut and kept by the boat. If you wish to tag and release any fish that are caught please discuss that with the captain before you book. The captain and crew will gladly have your catch professionally mounted and shipped to your home or desired destination. Note; Selling fish helps us keep the cost of the charter to you as low as possible. If you really desire to keep your catch please discuss that with the captain before booking your trip. Please remember the selling of fish and tips is a major part of the captain and crews income.
