Ask alot of questions before you book. What you can and can't keep , if you have a certain fish you want to catch if it is in season ask if your Charter has the proper license and tags for what you are fishing for.

We fished for Amberjack even though we couldn't keep them, it's a blast having to reel in a fish for 15-20 minutes. Pure power for most of these species. It isn't like fishing from the lake or pond back home.

Make sure you feel good overall; you are miles from the shoreline;go to the restroom before you get in the boat. Have some snacks with you and water.

Water was great. After the red tide it is taking the fish somwtime to move back in. With that being said we caught fish and had fun doing it. Saw a few dolphins and rays around the Bay

Start out with fresh cut bait and if you land a ladyfish use her as cut bait they hit that every time it hit the water

In some spots the fish were practically jumping on the boat and in other spots we couldn't catch anything. Be patient.

Get out there by boat!! The shore is really over fished and unless it's running it'll be pin fish and cat fish for sure. Use a great guide and get out there and have a great experience.

keep in mind that the number and size of the fish available are reduced because of the red tide of 2018, especially the in-shore fish like snapper, sea bass, snook etc. still very much fun

Weather in March can be a little chilly on the open water, but really warm by the mangroves so definitely dress in layers. Book it...it's worth every penny!

Make reservations at restaurant day before you fish so you have a spot at a table same night!

Do some research about the fish you want and when the best times to go during the year.

Fishing for Snook requires accurate casting to shady spots close to mangrove roots & docks.
