Go out have a great time! remember it’s Florida. The weather can change on a dime and you can’t expect the fish to bite all the time so just enjoy being out there on the water trying to catch your fish. ? ?

Saltwater estuary fish strike hard and are fun to catch. The fish were not large enough to keep. We used a combination of bottom fishing, bobber fishing, and lures. The fish stopped biting around 11am.

Watch the weather and dress appropriately. Dress in layers. 20 miles offshore The weather is different than at the dock. Usually windier and colder. You can always remove layers. Don’t forget Sun screen and polarized sun glasses.

The fishing was great but the weather and water conditions could have been better. It was cold, windy, and the water was a bit rough. The captain, his helper, the boat and equipment was great, but next time (for the sake of my twin 12 year olds who got a bit sea sick) we will fish during a warmer and calmer time of year. Speaking strictly fishing, we were catching fish constantly and a great variety of fish which made up for the tough weather conditions. Scott was easy going and tried to make everyone feel comfortable.

They provide everything- best thing is to listen and take their guidance as they are the experts for sure! Do t hesitate to ask questions as they are very kind and love talking about fishing and they point out things in the ocean we would have missed- jellyfish- turtles-dolphins- manatee.

Book a guide that is very familiar with the area and knows how to work a Garman. Highly recommend Chubby mullet charters. Hauls in several reds 35 lbs are better also snook , Colt cleaned the ones we limited out on and let’s us know as restaurant where they fish could be cook it was excellent and fun.

Be prepared to catch 90 % red snapper. They fight hard and make for an excellent experience. Too bad you cannot keep for the dinner plate but that's what happens with the federal government oversight, they make rules that make no sense.

Take ginger ale or ginger chews with you. Motion sickness pills don't work as good. Decide what you are going to do with the catch you keep before you go. Expect to have to throw back a lot that are too small or out of season.

Surf fishing still slow this time of year. Well worth the money to contact Capt Srb and let him put you on the fish.

Just understand that the “summer” species are not numerous and adjust your expectations accordingly.

Weather permitting there's a lot of good inshore fishing. A lot of different species are out there and they're a blast to catch!

September brings almost daily rain. Bring a hard shell jacket so when something kicks up, you are prepared.

The hot sun becomes very intense in the afternoon. Make sure to drink lots of fluids and bring an umbrella or something for shade. We cut our trip short because the sun was too intense for us.

Be careful during cold fronts! Seas could get a little choppy and stop you from going too far off shore.
