When fishing around the bay, you can try drifting, wade fishing, structure, top water, or going after bottom fish, using either artificial lures or bait, depending on what works better on the selected day. You can expect to get Red Drum, Snook, Flounder, and Speckled Trout.

Further out, you can try trolling for Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack or go bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper or Tripletail.

Ron thank you for taking the time to put in a review.  Fishing was tough in high winds and slow bite, but you guys worked hard and I appreciated your patience.

Thanks again Ron

Truly unparalleled experience.  Paco kept working and searching until he put us on fish.  On an iffy weather day, five of us caught 3 fish shy of a limit only because we elected to come in early.  Paco hustled, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor.  Highly recommend choosing this guide.
