  • Where are we located?
    We are located in Niceville, FL but we pickup from multiple locations around the bay including Destin and Ft. Walton Beach.
  • What is provided on the trip?
    Oh what a list! We provide basically everything you could possibly need for a day on the water. This includes all of the fishing equipment. Rods, Reels, Tackle, Bait, Fishing Licenses, high end LED spreader and fishing lights for night trips, and anything and everything else we can think of to help you catch what's biting. We also provide all of the required safety equipment per the US Coast Guard, and some extra things we hopefully will never need. This includes life jackets for all passengers (Type 1 Offshore with reflectors and water activated lights), fire extinguishers, an extensive first aid kit, flares, horns, lights, and EPIRB. Oh and the list goes on... We also include many amenities that you won't find on other Inshore boats. Such as a selection of Sodas, Water, Gatorade, and Snacks. A large, clean cooler full of potable ice for whatever you may wish to bring (Yes, beer is allowed!). Lavatory accommodations for the ladies in your group. And sunblock in case you forget! And if you think of anything we may have missed, or if you have any special requests, we will do our best to make it happen.
  • What Should I Bring?
    Most everything you need is provided. But we reccomend at least sunscreen, a good pair of polarized sunglasses, non-marking shoes or flip-flops and a camera. A clean cooler with ice is provided on the boat, so feel free to bring your beverages and food of choice. No glass please. A cooler to put your catch in at the end of the trip is also recommended.
  • What do we usually catch?
    Fish! It depends a lot on the time of year, the time of day, and your preference. We try to stay on top of what is biting at the time of your trip. Generally we target redfish, speckled trout, mangrove snapper and flounder in the bay. Along with a variety of gamefish. On inshore Gulf trips, the usual suspects include but are not limited to Tarpon, Red Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish), King Mackeral, Cobia, and Wahoo.
  • Can we keep and eat what we catch?
    Definitely! We are optional catch and release, but we know how tasty the catch can be. At the end of your trip, we will clean your catch and bag it with ice ready to travel. You also have the option of having the Chef at The Wharf in Niceville, where we pick up and drop off, cook your catch fresh to order. Enjoy an amazing lunch featuring fresh local ingredients, or take in one of Florida's most beautiful sunsets as your catch is prepared in a variety of ways. Often featuring live music, along with a full service bar and some of the best sushi in the area, ending your trip at The Wharf is the perfect way to finish an amazing day on the water.
  • Can people come that don't want to fish?
    Of course! If someone wants to just ride along and not fish that is perfectly ok. We can take up to 6 people, generally only 4 casting at a time for safety and comfort. Casting and catching fish requires a certain amount of space. And while our boat has plenty of room, that is usually enough hooks flying around to get the job done. Our price reflects the cost to charter the boat for 4 fishing or riding passengers, and remains the same regardless of the number of people up to 4. We can take 2 additional guests above 4 for a small fee to cover the extra fuel, insurance, and amenities.
  • Are kids allowed?
    Most definitely! We love having kids on the boat and sharing the joy of fishing with them. However, you are responsible for the children you bring on the boat. The Captain has many responsabilities during a trip, some of which prevent him from keeping an eye on everyone 100% of the time. We strive to be as safe as possible and to ensure the best experience we can give you, but personal responsability is a must. These trips occur on open water and sometimes in strong currents, it is your responsability to ensure children are well behaved and listen to any and all instructions they are given.
  • What if we have more than 6 people?
    No problem... Usually. Depending on the booking calendar, we can sometimes arrange for multiple boats to carry your group. We can fish near each other, within talking distance in many cases. Or we can spread out and host a private fishing tournament! The earlier we know the better the chance of the other boats not being booked.
  • What types of payment do you accept and when is payment due?
    We accept all major credit cards as well as Paypal. The full balance of the trip is due upon booking. See our cancellation policy below for information on what to expect if you can't go or if we have to cancel due to the unforseen. ***A friendly reminder, tips averaging 15-20% are customary and are greatly appreciated.***
  • What is the cancellation policy?
    Cancellations made outside of 10 days will recieve a full refund. Cancellations made within 10 days of the scheduled booking will be charged a $250 cancellation fee. Cancellations within 72 hours of the scheduled trip will be charged the full amount of the scheduled excursion. On trips cancelled by Strikers due to staffing, maintenance, weather, or unforseen circumstances, you will have the option of rebooking to any open availability or recieving a full refund.
  • Can I bring alchohol?
    Yes you can. Beer and wine is just fine. But please refrain from the hard stuff till we are back at the dock. Also, please no glass containers on the boat. If it breaks there is really no way to clean it up without going back to the dock. And we hate to have to say it, but if someone in your party becomes overly indulged at any point, the trip will come to an immediate end and no refund will be issued. This is at the sole discretion of the Captain under the authority provided by the US Coast Guard and CFRs.
  • How many people can fish?
    We are licensed and insured for 6 fishing passengers. And while we have one of the largest boats in the inshore fleet, 6 people casting hooks around each other at the same time can be a bit cumbersome. Based on the skill level of the guests, it may be necessary for only 4 to fish at any given time and rotate through who wants to fish and who wants to take a break.
