Reminders that may help answer your important questions

The Badman, is moored at Town of Newfane Marina, which is located in the village of Olcott, New York

Have fishing licenses in advance

IMPORTANT:  There is a fishing license outlet within walking distance of the marina.  Otherwise, the quickest way to obtain license is to purchase it on-liine.

Boat Doctor, Olcott, N.Y.

Motion Sickness

It is client responsibility, if you or any individual is prone to motion sickness, it oftentimes helps for that person to begin taking their pills (Dramamine, Bomine, etc,) up to 24 hours in advance in order to get the medication into the system.  If patches are used, follow the doctors instructions when taking.

Also as a precaution the evening before and the morning of the trip, refrain from alot of alcohol and greasy foods.  Try and eat drier, more digestible foods.

There is plenty of available storage on board the Badman If you think you need it, bring it along!  Particularly during cool weather periods, bring extra cloths and rain gear.

Departure times

We recommend an early departure for more productive fishing.  Our normal morning departure time is 5:30 to 6 am. Times can also be arranged on an individual basis. Plan to be at the boat at least an 30 minutes before departure.

At no time will any illegal drugs be allowed on The Badman.  In the event of possession, discovery or use of these items, the fishing trip will be terminated immediately and all passengers will be taken back to dock. Use or possession of illegal drugs by individual(s) will require the trip to be paid in full for that day as a result of clients own decision to have illegal substances on board a zero tolerance vessel.
