It was not the perfect time of the year for fishing here. A little later would have been a better bite. Captain Ray tried different tactics the whole time. We went out 40 miles to where the fish were. We could have had our limit of black fin tuna, but we opted to go for wahoo and Captain Ray said we may not catch anything but you sure won't if you don't try. It's not a guarantee to catch fish but Captain Ray did everything possible to do so. We ended up with 4 tuna and some other fish we caught off the bottom, I don't remember the name but they were delicious. The experience was great, we had beautiful weather, Captain Ray was fun, knowledgeable and just easy to be with. I would recommend Captain Ray to any serious fishermen.

Plan to dress warm in the morning and shed clothes as the day goes on. The boat we went on will do 20 plus knots so we were glad we layered. I like inshore trips because I’ve sailed blue water all my life and after over 60 years of doing it, I’ve had enough beatings.

September and the fall season is a great time to fish this area. There is action in the surf, inshore and offshore depending on what you’re targeting. Visit Haddrells Point for all the expert advice and supplies you need.

Go for the trophy fish in the summer months, shark and bull reds. It is too hot to fish the creeks necessary for trout or smaller reds suitable for eating. The water temperature makes the fish sluggish. Save that type of fishing for colder months.

Yes, the weather was excellent - not too hot and not too cold. I would recommend booking a trip on a weekday if possible. It was so peaceful and enjoyable out on the water; we only saw 3-4 other boats all afternoon.

We fished from 2pm to 7pm. We had luck with black drum and red fish under the docks with shrimp fishing on the floor...we caught the largest spotted trout with shrimp on floating corks near the shorelines between 6pm and 7pm when the wind was calm.

Bring a light jacket for early spring mornings and listen to your captain, this person knows his stuff.

Make sure you bring appropriate attire. The weather took us off guard and we were pretty cold out there.

Lots of options when it comes to areas to target in the inshore fisheries. Always something to bend your rod no matter what time of year

Make sure you wear shoes that can get wet. Bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat - you will be in the sun.

Captain Joe was very knowledgeable. He also told us where to go to get our fish cleaned and cooked. It was amazing.

Fishing here in august is very dependent on water temperatures and tides, be mindful of the dates before planning a charter!

Lots of fun. Caught a Cobia and a stingray. Catching lots of fish in the heat of July could be hard and day to day.

Fish early or late. It gets hot if there isn’t a breeze or cloud cover. Spring and fall appear to be peak for most fish in backwaters of the river systems.

The morning trip was great, it was perfect weather early in the day. Wear good water shoes because our feet got wet but you want to make sure you have secure footwear while reeling in the fish.

Our fishing experience had nothing to do with the month. It was the Capt. in his unwillingness to be productive he was lazy and hung over.

For the first time angler, I do recommend going with a fishing charter in order to lessen the likelyhood of having a disappointment.

I would recommend inshore half day. Contact Capt. Jeremy for recommendation on which time would be best. He is dedicated to you catching fish.

Ask locals when a good time to go is...the moon and tides have a lot to do with how good the fishing is
