Deposits – Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing asks that for all trips clients leave a 50% deposit upon booking a charter, to hold the date open. This 50% is fully refundable until 3 business days before the charter. Please contact Captain Jake at 617-594-0624 should you need to cancel a trip less than 3 business days in advance.
Payment – Upon contacting us to book a trip, please make sure to specify your payment method, and Capt. Jake will send you an invoice, as appropriate. Feel free to pay for your charter or leave a deposit using either credit card, cash, a check, or Venmo!
Weather – Safety on the water is our top priority, hands down. Capt. Jake will run charters in the dark, wind, fog, or rain as long as conditions are safe, and are still pleasant for the client. However, if conditions are forecasted to be unsafe or unpleasant, or if conditions appear formidable on the day of the charter, Capt. Jake reserves the right to reschedule charters at any time. If a rain-date charter is not scheduled or desired by the client, a full refund can be given.
Safety/Licensing – Our vessel is equipped with all of the necessary safety gear and equipment required by the USCG to run UPV charters, and we hold all the necessary fishing permits for our trips in both Massachusetts, and Federal waters. In addition, Capt. Jake holds a valid USCG Captain’s License, a valid TWIC card, and a valid Adult+Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certification from the American Red Cross.
Photos – After your trip, you just might see a picture of yourself pop up on this very website, Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing’s Instagram, or Facebook! However, if you’re camera shy, just let Captain Jake know. He always wants to respect clients’ privacy.
All the appropriate tackle and bait is provided on all Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing trips. However, if you have a favorite fishing rod or a lucky fishing hat, you’re welcome to bring it!
On ALL Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing trips, a maximum of 6 passengers is allowed. However, usually for fishing trips fewer passengers is ideal. For many of the fishing techniques we use, to avoid tangles in our lines we generally use only 2-3 fishing rods at a time. So, the more passengers on board, the less time each person will have individually with a rod in his/her hand. Captain Jake will work as hard as he can to make sure as many passengers as possible have lines in the water while fishing.
By booking a charter with Capt. Jake and Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing, the client agrees to follow all safety guidelines, protocols, and orders given by Capt. Jake while on charter. Capt. Jake reserves the right to end a trip at any time if a client’s conduct is deemed reckless or unsafe aboard our vessel.
Big Fish Mojo Sportfishing wants to ensure a fun and safe experience for all clients. Therefore, we comply with the United States Coast Guard’s Zero Tolerance Policy, and do not allow drugs or alcohol on board our charters. Thank you for helping us to comply with this policy.
