How many fish do you average on a trip?

Thats impossible to tell. It’s fishing not catching! Some days we catch 30 or more and  other days we struggle to catch five. Remember you’re going for  a scenic cruise as well so don’t forget to look around.

What is the best trip to catch fish?

The morning trip is the nicest weather wise and tends to book up the fastest and produces well, although we have been known to slay it in the afternoon, just be prepared for a little wind and clouds.

Big Ed’s specializes in families with kids, 5 years and older are recommended for charter fishing. 10 and older for fly fishing.
