FISHBUCKET wants your big day on the water to be GREAT! 
Charter trips are as unique as the clients who book them - never "one size fits all".
Successful fishing trips have many variables that go beyond "the weather". Even faraway weather events can impact local fishing. Tides, the moon, the season and knowing your species' feeding times & habits can make all the difference when the Capt. plans your charter. Fishbucket clients can rest assured that Capt. Mike & his first mates use their decades of combined experience to offer the very best trip possible with the conditions at hand. The FISHBUCKET provides shelter & comfort for all ages & levels. Capt. Mike is known for his resourcefulness & creativity, while the first mates are trained to know what the captain is thinking in advance and are quick to adapt to any change of plans or different tactics to accommodate the clients or conditions , that makes the difference between a good time and a GREAT one
FISHBUCKET's commitment to safety & adaptability are the key to enjoying your day at sea. That's our goal. It's a matter of pride for us, and our reviews reflect that. We offer something for everyone, even "open boat" trips at $200/pp when available.
