You can also catch Barracudas, Vermillion Snapper, King Mackerel and many other species the rich waters of Florida have on offer.

Captain Ryland Dickey and mate Lawrence are great guys who really try to make for an enjoyable experience.  The fishing was good too. I would highly recommend the True Grit for a charter out of this area.
