Captain Tom is by far "THE FISH WISHPER"!! We caught fish consistently the entire trip. This great experienced angler really knows where all the honey holes are! This family owned company by far made us feel safe and had tons of fun! We caught everything from grouper, to snapper to name a few. They even offered to filet the fish to take home with us. I have been on many chartered deep sea fishing trips, and this was by far the best one. I would highly recommend Blind Date Charters to anybody looking for a great day fishing!!

Watch the weather patterns and try to get a few warm days in a row to make the snook more active. Still early forTarpon and the normally reliable sea trout are still recovering from the red tide last year so maybe next year might be better it you prefer that species. We had a great time catching lady fish when the water temps dipped and put the snook off their feed. Be prepared for some wind this time of year.

Only because January can be a crap shoot : ) It was cold the day we fished so things were a bit quiet - but 2 days later is was back in the mid/high 70's and I'm sure much better for those anglers :) :)

Had a great time but it certainly was hot!! Would like to try the same thing during the fall or spring.

Hard to tell about the area in general as we only had the one experience which was not what we expected.

Wear gear for protection from the sun. Don't forget the sunscreen. Plan on a wonderful experience of fishing and observing the wonderful scenery.

Try the inland fishing in the shallows to site fish along the Mangroves, you never know what may be leaving in the shadows of each cast.

Fishing in the spring/summer/early fall is great, but for some reason fishing in December sucks.

Go out with an experienced guide who knows the water and the best way to catch fish.
