Went fishing with Fair N' Square Charters on Marzo 1, 2020
We went March 1, 2020. Took 4 hours to even find some small Spanish mackeral. We went all over the coast area and even in port and saw nothing on the radar until heading back to dock. The other boats were not catching anything either. I would do this trip again but at a different time of year.

March is the slow time for fishing in Port Canaveral, but if you find an experienced guide like we did with the Denise Marie you will have a good time. We only booked a 4 hour trip and we caught 5 different types of fish ranging from a 25lb red fish to a couple 16 inch white fish. If you come down during spring break be perpared for rough waters and if you get a good captain he will delay the trip so you don't get sea sickness.

Captain Art does it right. If there is fish to be caught he will find them and get you on them. Captain Art is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He is passionate about making your fishing experience one you won't forget. Thanks again for another great experience.

We got the choice of fishing for big fish and possibly not getting anything or just fishing. We picked to just fish. We caught 35 Fish and had a blast. No trophy fish but we didn’t care. We wanted some action.

Make sure you verify that the fish you are looking to catch are actually in season at time of trip. Also, may want to know if legal size of fish you can keep. Never thought a fish would be considered "too big".

Make sure you get only the people on theboat that you are expecting to get. A captain and his mate was all we expected but not what we got. Plus the captain promised to send photos he took but we never recieved them.

Plenty of potential. Check the weather forecast first. Was very choppy and windy the day we went and that hurt and fishing experience but no fault of a captain he did the best he could under the circumstances

There is an abundance of sharks so understand that you will have to work hard to keep them away from your catch. It is an experience to see them however it is frustrating when they eat everything you catch.

Went fishing with Patriot Charters on Marzo 1, 2019
If you want to send fish home check into it way before you go fishing so you can enjoy your catch back at your home also if you want to eat your catch for lunch that day go just down the road to Grill's Restaurant and they cook it up for you we did wow it was delicious.

Make sure that your charter or Cpt. can provide what is advertised. LIVE BAIT, FIGHTING SEAT, SECOND MATE OR HAND and specially a boat that is fitted and adequate for the trip.

It seemed that inshore fishing is hit or miss. I guess if I had to do it over, I’d try the offshore trip to see if we would have better luck.

Just make sure in April to check the weather and offshore reports. It can either be great conditions or a bit rough. Just make sure to get yourself out on a nice flat day.

Always be prepared for changing weather conditions at all times. I recommend bringing rain gear such as poncho or jacket.

Plan on making plans to take fish back and make sure your plans are in place before you fish in Port Canaveral.

We didn't have any luck out in the boat (3 croakers) but we did catch a shark off the beach which was awesome. Hopefully the fishing is better for you than it was for me.

Fishing very slow this day. I’m not sure I would book again unless I knew fishing was on.

Be flexible and do near shore fishing if the weather / surf conditions are poor for off shore.
