* Phones calls are free through the VOIP line only. 

* Also included is free wine, beer, and alcohol EXCEPT in the boat. We would prefer you did not drink at all during the fishing day. It's an issue of safety and sometimes.....bad behavior. You are standing on an unstable bow when poling and doing 35 mph on plane in eighteen inches of water. But if you insist the house will buy two beers per person to take in the boat. Additional beers for the boat are $4 each. 

* Alcoholic beverages in stock are  Kalik beer, Bacardi and Mount Gay rum, Gordons and Tanqueray gin, Filandia vodka, Jim Beam bourbon, Dewars scotch, and Frontera table wines in Cabernet, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc,and Chardonnay. If you would like something in particular such as a bottle of 15 year old single malt scotch or a special bottle of wine you'll have to bring it with you.
