    After filling in your listing details, follow the tips below for each section:

    Basic Info

    In this section, you tell us what type of business you run and how many guests you can take on a trip.

    You’ll be asked to fill in a series of checkboxes about the facilities you offer, depending on your listing type. Customers are more likely to book if they see detailed information.

    • Make sure to mention all of the amenities you have available.
    • You can add additional information to all amenities on the page by clicking the Add comment button.

    Photos & Videos

    This section is where you can show off your happy customers and their big catches.

    This article  will teach you how to upload and rearrange your photos and videos.

    Fishing

    In this section, you will be asked to list your most popular targets, the common fishing techniques you use, and other details about what you provide to your customers.

    • Make sure to list all of your most popular targets.
    • The more information you provide on exactly where or how far offshore you fish, the more likely customers are to book.
    • Write down which locations you're fishing at, such as rivers, lakes, bays, or known fishing spots.
    • If you use any well-known brands of fishing gear, you can include that information by adding a comment to your tackle information.
    • If you provide your customers with snacks, drinks, lunch, or anything else that's included in the price of the trip, make sure to mention that as well.

    Location

    Listing an exact address where customers can meet you helps all trips go smoothly.

    Here you can see how to set and update your listing's location.

    Description

    This is the main selling point of your listing, where customers decide whether or not to book with you.

    • Our Content Team will write you a unique description to give you the best shot at getting bookings.
    • Write as much information as you can about your service, the type of trips you do, and anything else that's important or unique about your business.
    • Once you publish your listing, the Content Team will polish your description to increase your visibility and your chances of getting booked. The more information you provide when listing your boat, the better your description will be.
    • Do you do something no other captain in the area does? Make sure to write that down so that you can stand out.

    Availability

    Here, you can set your advance notice and booking window however it suits you best, and turn Instant Book on or off. You can find more information about the Instant Book feature here .

    The booking window lets you choose how far in advance your trips can be booked. This can come in handy if you are planning on changing the prices for the next season and want to avoid being booked in the meantime.

    Start week on is a section that allows you to choose the starting day of your week. Although in most countries Monday is the first day of the week, in some parts of the world (including the USA, Canada, and Australia), Sunday is considered the first day of the week. Depending on your habits and preference, you can choose and select the starting day of the week on your FishignBooker calendar as shown in the screenshot below.  

    Trips

    Create packages for all the trips you normally offer. If you want to offer specialty trips and need assistance, contact the Captain Relations Department and they'll be happy to help.

    Here you can learn how to add, manage, and edit your trips.

    Terms

    In this section, you can set the commission rate, your accepted payment methods, your cancellation policy, and other terms.

    This article will teach you how to adjust the commission on your listing.

    Calendar

    In order to avoid being double-booked, you can account for non-FishingBooker customers by marking days on your calendar as either open or closed; this will prevent FishingBooker customers from requesting trips on days when you're already booked. If you have multiple FishingBooker listings, you can efficiently manage the calendars on all of them using the Multicalendar feature.

    Learn how to update and manage your FishingBooker calendar here and about the Multicalendar feature here .

    Verification

    If your listing has a location somewhere in the US, you will need to verify it right away. Until you do, your listing will be visible to yourself as a captain, however, customers will not be able to see it or access it. Learn more about the verification process here
