Based on 24785 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

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.

Definitely bring lots of water, snacks, and sunscreen. No bananas, they are bad luck. Breathable long-sleeved shirts a neck gator, a hat, and nice polarized sunglasses will help keep you out of the sun. Be willing to listen, you'll learn a lot.

Absolutely the captain was very patient with us our fishing skills were a bit rusty, but he remained extremely friendly with us and taught us where to fish and how to feel them in. He definitely has enough knowledge to teach anyone how to get into some fish.

We spent the afternoon inshore fishing with Captain Chris. My son desperately wanted to catch something and this trip didn’t disappoint. We caught trout, lady fish, stingray, and 2 bonnet head sharks!! We’ve done a lot of charters and this one was one the best. Thank you Chris for a great time. We will definitely be back.

Fish were slow today but didn’t stop Captain Dennis from finding the fish. All of us caught fish - trout, redfish, bluefish, kingfish and some we didn’t keep either. Always had bait on the hook and kept us on spot. Thanks Captain for a great day with my sons.

Captain Chappy is a good, personable guide. He gave appropriate feedback to less experienced fishermen without being harsh. He put us on the fish with a good balance of “wait and see” and moving on to next spot to find the fish. Would book again with Captain Chappy. Thanks.

Captain Jesse was awesome! Right on time, great conversation, excellent boat and gear. We had a 4 yr old with us and he was very patient with him! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the fish. The boat was immaculate and equipment in great condition. He was working the entire time to keep us on fish and lines in the water. We would 110% book with him again. Definitely can’t say enough good things.

This was the best fishing trip my wife and I have ever been on. Captain Gene and his mate Riley put us on the fish from the time we started fishing until it was time too head home. We caught more fish than I could count. we caught barracuda, black sea bass, vermillion, trigger fish, and a big amber jack too top it off. I would absolutely recommend this charter
