Re: Saltwater Kit, the extras
You don't need pliers for a guided trip unless your guiding! Sunscreen , proper clothing and a hat! Boat shoes that won't scuff the boat and that you can wade in. As others have said ask your guide what you should bring like if you need water or lunch . If he recommends flys and offers use them . This is what he does use his knowledge to your advantage. If he recommends the tides are wrong for Bones listen to what he suggests as an alternative.
Having mated for many years on a charter customers would book a shark trip and when the day came for their trip conditions would be lousy for snarling . The captain would recommend going for tuna or inshore species but they would insist on sharks! Nothing worse than sitting on s chum slick for 6 hours and nothing to show for it.
The point is use your guide!
