November is not the ideal time to fish in the Gulf and Sound. The Red Snapper season is over. We caught a couple giant redfish that were delicious, and had a great time, but fishing for the first time would be better if booked in Red Snapper season.

Sometimes the powers-that-be put you in purgatory with what's in season and what's not in season. But the fishing is great all year and you can always keep some of the best tasting fish out there - Mingo!

Do you research and trying to find a reputable Charter just picking one at random will not work the key is in the captain and to whether or not he is willing to locate fish and put a good effort into the trip no matter how long or how short

Early evening conditions can be rough, especially at the cuts from the bay to the gulf. Take Dramamine beforehand if you're susceptible to seasickness. Also bring plenty of water, summertime along the gulf coast is usually HOT!

You can fish off the beach or off a pier for free, but if you really want an experience, get a charter! We used Captain Bryant Fields and his charter All Caught Up. Went well for everyone!

I would recommend setting up an early morning trip with a knowledgeable Capt. that's grown up in those waters. Bring some sunscreen and snacks and enjoy some beautiful waters.

The captain will call you and let you know what you need and if you bring small children have plenty of sun screen.

Let the Captain know your experience level. It will be a much better trip for all and you will learn more for your next trip.

Wait until June, when red snapper are in season. We caught several, but couldn't keep them. Otherwise, lots of good fishing.

Patience as always. We did not see other boats in our area catching target species either.

If your thinking about a trip, quit. Just book it! It was well worth our time and money.

I recommend asking what kind of fish are in season rather than what is listed. Also double check if they provide food / drinks and if not if you can bring your own. Great trip!

I prefer the smaller, more personal and private trips; they may be a bit more expensive but I believe it's worth it.

Sunscreen, Hat & sunglasses for sun protection. Cold drinks (we took frozen, they melt fast).
