No. We have a blanket permit on the boat that will cover everyone onboard.

Every boat is different but on my boat you can bring whatever you like. Act you have some sencse and have a good time. We do prefer that you bring cans vs glass.

You might need one for your car for the ride home but while we are fishing we have plenty of space for the catch.

"Went out for a 5 hour trip and Captain Tilley and his First Mate made this a very memorable trip for my three boys aged 8 - 10 - 14. Not only did they know where the fish were but they made it enjoyable for the littles. We will be back again next year for a longer trip thank you for the memories."MP 10-22
