Make sure you get a guide that knows where to go for the fish. Our guy did not. We went on a fishing trip with a guy from our campground and caught a load of fish. So it's all in knowing how and where the fish are going to be.

July is hot and can be a slow time to fish. Be sure you know if your targeted fish are here when you plan the time of your trip.

Get a guide like Captain Buddy LaPointe that knows exactly where the fish are running at any time of the year or day.

Take your time, fish in shore and near shore on your own, but make sure to take an off shore charter!

Scrutinize the captain closely. The captain we thought we hired was in Michigan chartering fishing trips. His business won't last long down here if he doesn't clean up his act.

Captain Buddy is an expert in the area; he is on the fish and also a great guy. Just show up and catch fish.

Sure. We have fished here on 3 prior occasions with fun and success. This was the one bad experience, and was due to the captain.

Could be a beautiful choppy day or super flat like a lake. It's hard to predict.

Make arrangements to ship fish home ahead of time. Also check with the airlines.
