2022 RATES



Our 1/2 Day Trips are 4-5 hours, and are often better for guests bringing children, guests with time constraints, and summer trips to beat the afternoon heat. 1/2 Day Trips can be morning or afternoon, depending on the type of fishing.  We strive to put you on the water during the best bite. The rate is $500 for the boat for the trip.  This is not a per person rate. (Max 3 anglers)



Our 3/4 Day trips are 6-7 hours, and our best seller.  These trips give us more time and flexibility than and 1/2 day without the commitment of a Full Day.  The rate is $650 for the boat for the trip.  This is not a per person rate. (Max 3 anglers)



Our full day trip is an 8-9 hour trip and is for the most serious angler looking to put in some quality time on the water.  These trips give our guests the most flexibility, and we can often fish for many different species covering a variety of techniques and geographic areas.  The rate is $800 for the boat for the trip.  This is not a per person rate. (Max 3 anglers)



Our striper trips in Weldon typically run from mid-April through mid-May.  We offer a slightly longer 1/2 day option beginning in the morning at 6:30 a.m. and in the afternoon at 2:00 p.m.  We don’t offer a longer trip simply because you don’t need one.  You’ll catch plenty of fish in 5 hours.  This is not a per person rate.  (Max 3 anglers)
