in 4 hours fishing schedule, 3 hours will spent navigating to the spot and back...will rest just one hour for you really fish. And if you wanna use your lures or jigs, bring your entire tackles (rods, reels, lines etc), since if you just bring your lures/jigs, you WILL NOT gonna be able to use it with the reels/rods offered by the crew (dont me ask why ¬ ¬)

Read all reviews and ask questions. Ask charter if they are fishing ready upon arrivel. Getting fuel and bait takes a good bit of time away from your fishing trip. This should be done before your time starts.

Capt George was a pleasure to fish with. His local knowledge, background and endless effort is what I look for in a fishing Captain. I would highly recommend booking with him especially if you are a small group of friends or a family. He makes fishing easy and pleasurable. (As always, more fish would have helped.)

Watch the weather. We lucked out and got a nice, dry, but still a bit windy day. (It rained the day before and the day after.) Chose an inshore charter for this reason, 7 foot seas offshore... Been there done that. Great as it is to catch a sailfish, spending the next several hours seasick is not much fun.

i think the fishing may be better in the morning and not in the afternoon . No one really caught anything on our boat!

Just get out there. Tell the captain what you’re looking to do and they’ll point you in the right direction.

I was given advice from friends that fishing above the keys would not be that ideal. However, we had a great time and expect to catch more fish in the area soon.

Be sure you and people in your group have no sea sickness, or they can suffer a lot.

It was our first experience. Deep sea fishing has such different techniques. Great experience.

Make sure (the best you can) to get a boat and crew that will work to help you catch fish. It seems the less you pay the less fish you catch.

I recommend that if you want to spend a fishing time with friends or family. Book with you. Helpful and very profecionales.

I think it would have been fine, but when we went out, a storm was brewing and I'm pretty sure that shut some fish down a bit.

Yes, but know your personal limitations. Choppy water is rough if you suffer from motion sickness. Prepare properly and enjoy.

Focus on the guide, not the boat. You don't need a 30ft boat to run around in the Miami bays and get to the good fishing!

Great time for Tarpon due to the shrimp hatch. Beat the heat. Beautiful weather. Fish at night when there isn't any boat traffic.

Definitely visit your doctor for motion sickness patches first because the ocean can get rough.
