January

Explore the saltwater flats in the winter, and experience a productive fishing trip. Fishing inshore for large schools of Redfish will yield some great results!

February

With temperatures slowly increasing, and rain becoming rarer, this is a great time to head out on the water and try a bit of fly fishing.

March

With spring steadily approaching, the fish are becoming more active. You can target Cobia, and Redfish are biting hot!

April

Cobia fishing is very productive this time of year, and as the temperatures rise, a day on the water is a great option to escape the heat.

May

Exploring the inshore flats will provide you with great opportunities to target Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. Expect to reel in some big Sharks as well!

June

This is when the fishing gets really exciting! You can have a lot of fun reeling in big Redfish and Trout, as well as some monster Shark specimens.

July

In July, huge Redfish are lurking everywhere, so you can expect to catch some big creatures inshore. This is when tourism heats up, so expect to have a great time on water and land.

August

This is the best time of year to target Tarpon, as they are in peak season. You can have a great adventure trying to catch a big “Silver King” on the fly.

September

As summer is slowly coming to an end, the temperature and the storms cool down. Fishing the flats is still productive when it comes to Tarpon, Redfish, and many more.

October

With temperatures slowly dropping, inshore fishing is very enjoyable. This is a great time to target Trout, as well as Sheepshead, Red Drum, and Flounder.

November

With tourism dropping, this is a great time to just relax and enjoy spending some time in nature. Trout is biting around underwater structures, and Red Drum is still a great target.

December

There’s a lot of inshore species you can target in December, so don’t hesitate to head out on an adventure in the flats. Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, and much more are biting hot.

If you're coming in July, be prepared for some hot fun! Be patient, as the heat effects the fishing and its hit or miss. Pick a highly recommended guide, like Brian at Heritage Charters, to ensure you have the trip possible and a fun guide to keep ya going, even if the fishings slow!

Fish early or late. It gets hot if there isn’t a breeze or cloud cover. Spring and fall appear to be peak for most fish in backwaters of the river systems.

Go for the trophy fish in the summer months, shark and bull reds. It is too hot to fish the creeks necessary for trout or smaller reds suitable for eating. The water temperature makes the fish sluggish. Save that type of fishing for colder months.

This was hands down the best part of our trip. He was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond expectations. There was people around us fishing catching nothing while we’re pulling up fish after fish and the biggest shark I’ve ever been physically next to. He was good with the fish got them released quickly and safely. I wish I booked him for multiple days cause he’s worth every Penny. Thank you

Captain Jeffrey knows where the fish are hiding whether it be near oyster beds or grassy areas. He works hard for you and his knowledge is impeccable due to his many years of fishing locally. We caught many species of fish which made for a very memorable day out on the water.

The experience was great and Captain Steve was a pleasure to work with. If the weather would have worked with us better, I’m sure we would have caught more fish. As it was I am happy with what we managed to catch. A couple of speckled trout, a couple of small red fish, and all the lady fish that we could handle. Thanks Captain Steve, for a very enjoyable afternoon trip. Dan
