Went fishing on Thursday, April 6, 2017

I highly recommend this trip and Captain Joe Nash as your guide. 

We were on spring break, down from Cedar Springs, Michigan and I told my son and his friend, both older teenagers, that I would take them fishing.  The weather wasn’t very cooperative that week because a front had moved in and brought some large waves into the Gulf.  The evening before our last day there I started looking for some inshore fishing options so I could at least get the boys on the water and I ran across Captain Joe Nash. 

Captain Nash has over 4,000 charter trips under his belt which I particularly liked so we scheduled a 1pm to 5pm trip for the next day to do some inshore fishing.  I like fishing, but I also like sleeping on my vacations so the 1pm trip was perfect.

I’ve been on a few charter fishing trips and have had mixed results.  I told the boys that if nothing else, we’ll get a nice boat ride and a day on the water.  We got so much more.  Captain Nash was a great host and his boat was perfect for the 3 of us plus Captain Nash. 

The boys took a liking to Captain Nash right away and felt comfortable being themselves.  I liked him as well and enjoyed chatting throughout the day.  Despite the 15 to 20 mph winds, Captain Nash was able to take us to a few spots until we found a good spot and we started catching fish.  In fact, for the next few hours, it seemed like we’d chat a little and them somebody had a fish on.  It was great and as you can see from the pictures, the speckled trout were good size.  We also caught 1 Flounder which was a surprise and several small Redfish.  On the way back to the marina we passed by a small pod of dolphins which was also a treat.

Captain Nash also has a larger boat for blue water fishing which I hope to charter on future vacations.  As for this one, it was really the highlight of our week.

The family had a wonderful time fishing on the Cool Change Charter.  We would definitely return and fish with Captain Joe.

Family fishing trip. We caught several (20) smaller fishes within an hour and then went out hunting for larger. Boot much luck there, but a great trip.  Capt. Joe and Rhyle were great.
