Captain Adam is a true allrounder when it comes to fishing. Using a variety of techniques he’ll ensure that you have the best time possible reeling them in. Although he primarily uses common angling techniques he can also set up some kite fishing. You can expect to reel in the likes of Black Drum, Cobia, Flounder, King Mackerel, Redfish, Black Seabass, and Spadefish when you’re out with Adam.

All the gear will be provided for you including Ugly Stiks rods, King cast 4000 series and Shimano Sienna 4000 series reels. The license is included in the price as is catch cleaning and live bait which he can get before or during the trip depending on the type of fishing you’re going for.

Take food, drinks, and sunscreen with you. Don’t take bananas, glass or spray sunscreen with you. When you book with Adam he’ll ensure that you have a fantastic fishing adventure. Go ahead and do it.

    A shorter afternoon trip is always a great idea for beginners and children. The fishing will be more focused and intense than a long drawn out day meaning that you shouldn't too bored when you're out on the water. There's a great range of fish out there waiting in their droves, including Speckled Trout, Gray Triggerfish, and Weakfish.
