Chris will put you on the fish. Wow what a Great trip. The ErinAnne II is tip-top, the gear is all first rate. The crew was awesome, doing everything they could to make sure we had everything we needed for a fantastic day. We’re already planning our next trip!

Dress warm while out on the ocean, it was really cold for us coming from Arizona. The parking is not suited well in some places for large vehicles. Research where you will be staying for availability of parking and the size of space reserved for you.

Don't know why, but the captain only took cash, pain to walk around with that much. Taking credit cards would be nice.

Tuna fishing down here can always be a hit or miss, avoid those days after a full moon and you should be able to get on them.

The water is a bit murky from the red tide this time of year but the fishing was still lots of fun, especially around the wrecks. Dress warm, 60's on the water can be cool.

First time for us so really don't have any advice other than charter with someone who fishes for a living and knows the spots!

Dress for weather conditions and if you haven't been on the ocean before take some dramamine before and during your trip. Oh I also recommend using Good Times Fishing.

It was a little early in the season for the bigger fish, but the water was great, the weather was warm enough and the fish were biting.

Except to catch around 14 inch fish and not many. Bigger fish move closer during the summer. It's still a little chilly in March.

Take a private boat so a new angler can be taught properly how to fish by a Captain and crew that care
