This is a great place to go fishing but the summer months is not the greatest for catching the best fish, which is anywhere you go. We plan on a fall or winter trip.

Fishing Booker is a great place to start. Read the reviews...make sure they are recent. Do some research of what's in season (if you want dinner!) And pick one and go with it...! You will most likely get a knowledgeable Capt. with great fishing experience. Cheers!

I'm sure there are more plentiful seasons, but it has been a great experience for us 2 years in a row. We are out for the fun and memories, and if we get a mess of fish for the table even better- we've accomplished that 2 years in a row.

Choose a vessel and trip length appropriate for your angling skills and experience, endurance, affordability, and time available. Don't expect big game on a half day trip on a big boat, and conversely don't expect comfort on a small but fast open fisherman. Most importantly, talk to your captain....tell him or her what you expect, and they'll tell you what experience they can provide.

Find a reputable & experienced company to charter your trip. Don’t set your expectations too high, fish are unpredictable. Book a full day trip, this will get you further out in the ocean where the bigger fish are at.

Started a bit slow but picked up at the 2nd spot. Capt Tyler was spot on and one of the handicapped customers, making it safe and easy to get on and off. We ended up with about 4lb of various of filets. Capt Tyler was courteous, friendly and helpful. The same goes for office personnel. Thank you again for all.

My son and I went fishing with Captain Scotty and we had a great time. He would bait the hooks and take the fish off for us. I had problems with casting and Captain Scotty would cast for me. Captain Scotty would move us to a new spot when the fish weren't biting. We caught several fish and had a great time.

One of the best, if not the best charter I’ve ever been on! Edwin is extremely enthusiastic and great at teaching technique. We started with Edwin spotting a Tripletail next to a buoy and ended up with 12 species during the 6 hour trip. Besides bring up 5 Goliath Groupers, we landed a beautiful and delicious Gag Grouper. What a day! Thank you Edwin. You will be our go-to captain.
