Do you have any experience with offshore fishing charters

Offshort charters can be a great idea if you investigate the person before you hire them. Some of the questions you should ask is about their equipment. Make sure the charter is large enough for those in your party and that it passes all safety inspections. You also want to make sure they have life jackets for everyone.
Ask the charter about what they provide. Some of them offer everything so all you have to do is show up. They provide the equipment, your food, and even storage for the fish you catch. Others are bare bones in nature so they provide the boat but you need to bring your own equipment, storage, and food and water for yourself.
It is a good idea to ask them about what experience they have too. Don’t assume that just because they have a boat and they offer a charter service that they are good. Ask for references and about any guarantees that they offer. The more you research the sooner one that looks amazing will rise to the top of your list.
