What to expect

Never been on the water?  Don't worry! 

CHUM BUCKET Charters works with new anglers of all ages. We take first time families out on the water and brought back limit catches quite regularly. Let us help you prepare to enjoy an adventure like none other. We're outfitted to help you make memories that will last a lifetime. We offer a free trip if each client on board does not land a fish. The captain wants you to have a great time on the water, so in the event of foul weather he will have the final say in cancellations for safety sake. The option will be given to either refund your deposit or hopefully reschedule the trip at that time.
