Be ready for anything! Our day was supposed to have perfect weather, but we still hit some major waves on our way to our spot! The fish are fun to catch and if you can keep them, they make for a great dinner!

Zeke's Landing has always been easy to work with and offered good charters. If you're wanting to catch Red snapper you should wait until June. If you're alright with some Kings, Spanish and vermilion snapper May will be alright for you.

Be sure to book before the end of red snapper season. We caught a lot of trigger fish which is normally open in August but is staying closed this year, which is unfortunate because we had to throw all of them back, but they were still fun to catch.

If you fish fresh water like I do in Michigan you are taught to set the hook you do not do that here you just reel in and sunblock.

Talk to your captain and make sure you are on the same page about who is going and if they are experienced enough to put you on your target fish.

Apparently, the deep sea ocean trips are the best way to go. We had fun fishing in the intracoastal area, but it seemed like the most and largest fish were on out a bit.

Fishing was not good but due to unusually heavy rain for a couple of days before the trip.

Compared to to fishing in Panama City, I would happily return and fish-in in the Pensacola area.

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!

Several species we caught weren't in season so catch and release, so check seasons
