Went fishing with Austin Outfitters on May 24, 2024
Do it! I lost count after hooking into 5 bluefish - the smallest was probably about 7 pounds. We landed one small schoolie bass. The fish were coming in fresh from the ocean. The weather was awesome - not too cold, not too hot. I grew up in New York and I had never seen the skyline from that particular angle.

I would recommend finding someone who is good with beginners. Getting tips and tricks really did help!

Have fun! The fish really want to bite so give them a chance to hook themselves.

Very good for what you get, a fee hidden costs but avoidable if you bring your own gear

Don’t hesitate to piss before boarding boat if you’re a woman. Bring a hoodie if you get cold easily
