Be flexible with locations and species of fish you expect. We had a great time in the more shallow waters since the weather made deeper waters too choppy for those of us with less experience on the water. We had a great time and took our catches to a nearby restaurant for dinner, which was delicious.

Definitely come early you will want to get going early the fish tend to bite at dawn and we caught most of our fish in the first few hours. This is a fun trip and lots of catch here. This trip is also a great place to relax in warm and sunny weather.

I am not very knowledgeable of fishing seasons, but we liked being able to launch from John Pennecamp State Park and fish in some beautiful areas. Weather was perfect. Clear, sunny skies. Hot, but otherwise a great day fishing.

Book with Jay. He listens to what you are looking for and lives up to your expectations. On top of that, he can tell you so much about the ocean and the fish you are looking for and ecosystem. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable+

Decide if you want to fish the Atlantic Ocean side but make sure it is a calm day or the Florida Bay/ mangrove side which is quieter with different kinds of fish like snook, mangrove snapper sea trout, redfish etc.

February is just a little early for the big tarpon run. I was hoping to get lucky on some early arrivals. It didn't happen so changed the game plan, and had a blast the rest of the day smashing all different species of fish of all different sizes. Don't be afraid to adapt or even change your game plan. You might enjoy it. I loved it!

We asked for a sailfish experience. Because of having no live bait onboard, we fished for bait instead of sailfish. Waste of time and money.

Make sure you have the right guide/charter. Knowledge is power out on the water! Especially offshore.

May - July is the best season to fish in south Florida. Better water conditions also. All things considering we still had a great time.

It was very windy and a rainy time when we were down in the keys. Lucky we had a day when the weather permitted us to go out and fish.

Go with the locals - alot of them grew up here & know the waters, tides & gear best! Many are generation fishermen so they have lots of knowledge!

I think a two hours trip is too short. Better go for the half day one. And be fast when you got something on the hook. Water and sun screen are vital.

Get your sea legs going, ten miles out you could experience some serious swells. If you have ever gotten sea sick consider staying in the bay or near shore.

Four hours was about perfect for our children who are ages 10 and 11. I would bring snacks though, so at the end of the charter, they could munch on them.

Be flexible. Wind came out of nowhere and we had to change our plans. In doing so we still had an incredible time

We were lucky to snag a Wahoo today as it is the end of their season. January is the beginning. So if Wahoo is what you're after, know that is your window.

Talk to your charter and make clear what your expectations are. If they are as good as Underwater Cowboy, they will be upfront and professional.
