When you and your party show up to our dock ready for your days adventure, you will be happy to know that along with a reliable boat and a knowledgeable captain, your trip will also include a professional and knowledgeable first mate/fishing guide.
Our first mate is a dedicated tournament angler that not only loves to fish for multiple species, but loves to cook and serve as well. Apart from his passion for fishing, he also has a background in freshwater biology witch gives us a competitive advantage over most charter companies. Our mate is also great with kids and will make it possible for them to reel in these powerful fish!
To give you and your party a better understanding of what a mate's job is, here are some of the duties that a mate takes on aboard Reel Addiction Sport Fishing.
maintain the vessel cleanliness before, during and after your charter.
ensure all refreshments and food (if catered) is stocked and prepared, as well as cook and serve.
assist the captain in departure and docking of the vessel.
set up all fishing equipment and tackle.
help give instructions in efficiently fighting the fish.
make sure you and your party are comfortable and happy for a successful day on the lake.
clean and package your fish for transportation (gratuities appreciated)
