    Enjoy full day inshore trip! fishing for reds, flounder, drum, and trout. the 6 hr trip will give the better chance of getting either both but at least one of the better sides of the tide. also allows for more travel time in the event that we need to make longer runs to ensure better fishing.

    this is a early morning top water trip. we will depart before sunrise and start throwing top water or sub surface baits for trout and red fish. this is really fun fishing and one of my favorite things to do. its very exciting watching fish crush a top water bait! its only a few hours because once the sun rises the top water bite tends to slow down. the trip can be extended to a normal fishing trip if needed.

We went with Capt. Zach on a Saturday morning which did not look very promising due to the rain the night before and an incoming front.  We went anyway and he advised if we weren’t getting bites we could come back in and he would charge accordingly. He took us to many places and really worked to get us on fish.  We caught a variety of fish which he cleaned for us and we had them prepared at the Kingfish Grill.  Capt. Zach was knowledgeable, friendly,  prepared, and gave pointers and instruction on techniques.  Also, his boat had a head!  We will definitely use him again and would recommend him to others!
