FISHING: Is fishing allowed on CharterLink boats?

Yes, you're very welcome and the Gulf is often bountiful. However, it's on the understanding that if our cleaning crew can tell that you were fishing (icky spots on the deck, smelly lockers  topsides or (please no!)fish scales below decks) then you will be charged an additional cleaning fee. And don't use the cockpit seats for a baitboard either - that's really expensive! So very careful fishing, well cleaned up.  

Also, be aware of the fisheries regulations.... There are some marine reserves around where no fishing is allowed, and outside of these, if you were, for example, to exceed the limits, be aware that the fisheries people can seize the boat!
