Inshore, nearshore, and backcountry are where fishing will take place. You’ll be targeting Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Trout, Permit, Cobia, Snapper, and many more. Different techniques will apply for each fish, from bottom fishing to popping corks to throwing artificial and live bait. After the trip, Capt. Scout will clean the fish and bag it up if you choose to keep fish.

Supplied on the trip are bottled water, fishing rods and reels, tackle, bait, and all the other fishing supplies needed. Also, USCG life jackets, children 6 and under are required to wear a life jacket for comfort. The captain recommends bringing your own jacket for the child, food and snack, any other drink, and sunblock.
