CUSTOM EXPERIENCESContact Danielle
If a day of fly fishing from the skiff isn't your thing but you still want to expeience what the Apalachicola Estuary System has to offer first hand, reach out to discuss options for custom tailored experiences with Captain Danielle.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We’ll pick a boat ramp along the Forgotten Coast that offers the best available fishing conditions. Capt. Danielle will reach out the day prior to our trip to arrange a meeting time and location. Depending on the season and your goals, the day may include poling oyster and grass flats in quiet back estuaries, sightfishing Tripletail in Apalachicola Bay, or tracking cruising fish on the beautiful gulfside beaches.
BOAT & EQUIPMENT:
Capt. Danielle runs two different top quality skiffs designed specifically for the vastly different demands of the Apalachicola estuary system. The Cayo 173 is a small lightweight tiller skiff capable of floating in the skinniest of waters and crossing shallow oyster beds to seek fish not reachable by those running larger skiffs or bay boats. The Egret 189 is a supersized skiff capaple of safely transporting us on long runs and through heavy bay chop when necessary to target fish on the gulf beaches or deep into the Apalachicola Bay. Both boats are outfitted with top quality safety and fishing equipment. TFO’s flagship Axiom II-X Rods with BVK reels and Airflow lines of various weights ensure consistency in feel and performance when switching sizes. Hand tied select flies, high quality fluorocarbon leader, and all the tackle necessary to maximize your success will be provided. Check out The Gear page for more info on the equipment we will be using!
WHAT TO BRING:
A full day on the water here on the Gulf Coast can be magical if you come prepared, or miserable if you don’t. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and something comfortable taking the forecasted conditions into consideration. We highly recommend long sleeve wicking sun shirts, and wicking shorts; even in the heat of summer you will find Capt. Danielle in full pants and a long sleeve shirt to protect from the sun. If you have a lightweight rain jacket, bring it along, afternoon showers are common along the Gulf Coast particularly in summer months. Polarized sunglasses are an essential tool when sight fishing, Danielle has Costa Del Mar sunglasses for you to try out so you can see the difference! Danielle will provide lunch for full day trips and plenty of water in reusable water bottles. Consider bringing a light snack for half day trips if you think you might get hangry. Plastic water bottles are highly discouraged. An iced cooler will be ready to go if you have any items that need to be kept cold.
CANCELLATION POLICY & PAYMENT:
All payments for guide services can be made through our Fishing Chaos booking platform on the Book A Trip page. Other forms of payment including cash, check, and Venmo can be accommodated as needed. Deposits for all trips and experiences are 50%. Cancelations outside of 30 days prior to your trip date will be provided a full refund.
