Guiding services rates

  • Redfish are catch and release only!
  • Southern Saltwater is unable to clean your fish at the marina. However, we’d be more than happy to drop your catch at the fish market to be cleaned at your expense. Typically the cost of cleaning your fish is  $1 per pound and cards are accepted. Your fish will be cleaned, bagged, and iced. If you’d rather take your fish with you, be sure to bring an appropriate sized cooler with you.
  • Any broken tackle is the responsibility of the Captain, any rods and reels dropped overboard are the responsibility of the client.
  • Children under the age of 6 must wear a PFD while underway. Please make us aware of any anglers that are under the age of 6 so we can be sure to have the appropriate PFD’s for the charters.
