Q. Can I split a charter ?
A. Yes, but it is not easily accomplished. Better if you book the trip
yourself or with a family member, a client or friends.
Q. Do I need my own tackle ?
A. No. Capt. Alan is equipped with
Daiwa and Shimano spin and bait casting
tackle. His rods are Daiwa and custom built
rods by Key Largo Rods. All terminal tackle is
supplied and a good selection of artificial
lures are always on board. If you prefer to
bring your own tackle that's fine, but let
Capt. Alan know so there isn't more tackle
on board than necessary.
Q. How do I book a trip ?
A. Capt. Alan Sherman can reached by E-Mail at email@example.com or
by phone no later then 9 PM or earlier then
AM: 786-436-2064. To book a trip a deposit of half the amount of the charter
price is required to hold the date. The deposit only secures your day of fishing
the balance is due in US funds at the end of the charter.
Cancellations: If you cancel a trip more than 7 days in advance
Capt. Alan will refund your deposit. If you cancel your trip with less than 7
days notice you forfeit your deposit, and if you cancel your trip with less than
48 hours notice and Capt. Alan can not rebook the day, you owe the full amount
of the charter. Charters paid in advance must be redeemed within one full year
of date purchased. Remember every day that Capt. Alan is not on the water fishing
a charter is a day not paid! It is most important that the client contact Capt.
Alan Sherman during the late afternoon or early evening and not after 8 PM the
night before the charter!
Q. How many people will the "Get Em" hold?
A. The "Get Em" can fish up to 4 people, but less is better.
Q. How much does a charter cost ?
A. Please see
Rates and Pricing
Q. Gratuities ?
you are satisfied with how you were treated
on your charter and if you felt Capt. Alan
tried his hardest to put you and your party
on fish, then I would recommend $25 to $100.
This is strictly up to the client.
Q. I am not an experienced fisher person can I
still go with Capt. Alan?
A. Capt. Alan Sherman is a retired
party boat Capt. and has taught thousands of
novice and inexperienced fisher people how
to fish. He takes pleasure in watching a new
fisherperson catch their first fish. He is
very patient and great with kids but advises
that young children should not be subjected
to more than 4 hours on the water. Children
must be 6 years or older. Capt. Alan also
fishes intermediate and experienced fisher
Q. What about weather?
The "Get Em" carries a supply of foul weather gear that fits adults.
Rain in South Florida is a common occurrence
and the fishing trip can in most cases be
completed even in a rainsquall. The Capt.
will not put you or him in danger and if
hazardous conditions present than Capt. Alan
will quickly run for cover and then either
wait out the storm or terminate the trip. If
bad weather is in the picture for your
charter then a decision will be made either
the night before or the morning of the
charter. If bad weather forces Capt. Alan
Sherman to cancel the charter a full refund
will be made or the deposit can be applied
to a future date.
Q. What do we need to bring?
A. Wear seasonal clothing, soft soled
shoes that will not leave black marks on the
deck, snacks or food for yourself, plenty of
drinks for yourselves, sunscreen, hats,
sunglasses and a camera and during the
summer insect repellent may be needed. There
is dry storage onboard. Capt. Alan has an
iced cooler onboard that is capable of
holding enough drinks and food for 4 people.
You will not be able to bring a cooler on
board because of space limitations. You can
bring a cooler with some ice that can be
left in your vehicle for storage of your
catch for your ride home. You can bring your
favorite foul weather gear if you like but
Capt. Alan will have foul weather gear
onboard for adults.
Q. Where will we fish ?
Destination is your choice! North and
South Biscayne Bay - Flamingo - Freshwater
in the Everglades, and at the captain's discretion
