What if I’ve never fished before and need help?
Is it your first time fishing on a drift boat? Maybe you don’t fish that much or you are a beginner? No problem! Our experienced Captain and crew know exactly what to do and part of the experience on the Southern Comfort IV is learning how to bait hooks, use tackle, rods, and reels properly. You will definitely become a better fisherman! Our entire crew has years of fishing knowledge and they will be more than happy to show you all the latest tricks of the trade. We have had beginners turn into fierce anglers with a little patience and some good, sound instruction. Don’t be shy, just ask us for help and we’ll be there to guide you!
What if I don’t want to bring the fish I caught home?
If you have fish that are edible or can be used as future bait, the crew would deeply appreciate you donating the fish back to the vessel so they may be able to share with other people onboard.
Are there certain fish that are catch and release only?
Our entire crew is conservation savvy. If the fish is legal to take but not going to be consumed, we prefer that you take a photo of your catch and then safely release the fish back into the ocean. We will be happy to assist in any catch and release efforts. We abide by the “waste not, want not” motto.
