With the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic Hook's Sportfishing is shutting down all boats until further notice. We are hoping to be able to be back online June 1st. We are waiting to hear the new guidelines and will update you as soon as possible. Please feel free to give us a call, as we are answering phones at home, when we can. Be safe, stay well. We know there are going to be changes happening, so please be patient for the outcome. 

We are working with the county to get us all back fishing ASAP! We have some guidelines we are trying to implement.

Social distancing

All Anglers must provide their OWN masks, gloves and respect the 6 foot distance. 

You MUST remain in the alotted space you are assigned for social distancing

Deckhands will help where they can, please respect their distances. 

Once we do have a date from the County we will be sure to make an announcement immediately on all platforms.

If you have chartered a boat please be aware that all charters are being cancelled by the boat owners only.

Our phones will be monitored! Don't hesitate to call with any questions! We have the phones on call forward! 

COVID-19 Sanitization and Social Distancing Policy

At this time we are following County health guidelines for COVID-19 and are not operating. Our following policy will come into action when we have been approved to open back up again.

LANDING

DOCK

DAY BOATS

OVERNIGHT BOATS

  • We will be encouraging online reservations and payment to reduce crowding of landing office.
  • Instructional Placards will be at the entrance of the landing explaining the protocols on the property.
  • Staff will be wearing face masks while in the work place.
  • Hand sanitizer will be placed in the landing for the conveinance of customers as well as workers.
  • All commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized hourly.
  • All employees will be trained in the Sanitation Protocols and document the training.
  • We will be establishing appropriate shoreside passenger waiting areas for each vessel.
  • Each fishing vessel will board at different times.
  • We will maintain the cleanliness of the dock carts and hand rails to the best of our ability.
  • Cleaning and Disinfection Efforts - At this time, in addition to routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, vessels may consider more frequent cleaning of commonly touched surfaces such as handrails, countertops, restrooms and doorknobs. The primary mode of COVID-19 virus transmission is believed to be through respiratory droplets that are spread from an infected person through coughing or sneezing to a susceptible close contact within about 6 feet.
  • When safe and possible ensure there is 6 feet of rail space between each person.
  • Have all rails, counters and seating areas cleaned as frequently as possible but as reasonable for the circumstances.
  • When practical only permit persons in the galley who are ordering and consuming food. When possible, all patrons should be invited to eat outside as is reasonable and prudent.
  • Encourage passengers to observe sanitization and social-distancing parameters to the extent reasonably possible, while being considerate of the customer experience
  • Crew notifies Captain immediately if Covid-19, other respiratory illness of flu-like symptoms develop. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") the following may appear as symptoms of infection within 2 - 14 days after exposure to the virus:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste
  • Captain notifies (US Coast Guard, Landing, Owner, County Health, etc.) if crew member or passenger develops symptoms and to take steps and implement responsive measures, if any, directed by County Health officials. Such measures may include imposition of physical separation of passengers to the extent possible within the physical confines of the Boat, early trip termination, diversion to nearer port for passenger treatment and/or medical intervention, and other individualized intercession as circumstances warrant.
  • Cleaning and Disinfection Efforts - At this time, in addition to routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, vessels may consider more frequent cleaning of commonly touched surfaces such as handrails, countertops, and doorknobs. The primary mode of COVID-19 virus transmission is believed to be through respiratory droplets that are spread from an infected person through coughing or sneezing to a susceptible close contact within about 6 feet. Therefore, widespread disinfection is unlikely to be effective. (CDC Guidance)
  • The bunks pads and all bunk room surfaces and hand holds should be cleaned between each trip.
  • All passengers must bring their own sleeping bag and pillow for overnight trips. The exception is if a vessel provides completed linen and blankets on every trip for each individual passenger.
  • When safe and possible, ensure there is 6 feet of rail space between each person.
  • Consider alternating head and feet positions in bunks to keep respiratory distance between persons on vessels that have tiered berthing.
  • Have all rails, counters and seating areas cleaned as frequently as possible but as reasonable for the circumstances.
  • When practical, only permit persons in the galley who are ordering and consuming food. When possible, all patrons should be invited to eat outside as is reasonable and prudent.
  • Encourage passengers to observe sanitization and social-distancing parameters to the extent reasonably possible, while being considerate of the customer experience.
  • Crew notifies Captain immediately if Covid-19, other respiratory illness of flu-like symptoms develop. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") the following may appear as symptoms of infection within 2 - 14 days after exposure to the virus:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste
  • Captain notifies (US Coast Guard, Landing, Owner, County Health, etc.) if crew member or passenger develops symptoms and to take steps and implement responsive measures, if any, directed by County Health officials. Such measures may include imposition of physical separation of passengers to the extent possible within the physical confines of the Boat, early trip termination, diversion to nearer port for passenger treatment and/or medical intervention, and other individualized intercession as circumstances warrant.

Please everyone, be safe.
