Expect a great trip with Captain Larry Bell, he will give you a great day on the water filled with quality keeper size redfish and trout. Plan on wearing clothes that you feel comfortable wadefishing in. Remember to shuffle your feet. Never had any problems with stingrays but always better to be safe. Bring lots of sunscreen and polarized glasses to be able to see top water baits used on the flats without hurting your eyes.

BE SURE TO UNDERSTAND THE TYPE OF FISHING YOU WILL BE OFFERED. SOME GUIDES ONLY OFFER FISHING WITH LIVE BAIT WHILE OTHERS PREFER TO FISH WITH ARTIFICALS. BRING YOUR WATER AND SNACKS NOT YOUR BEER TO THE BOAT. CATCHING FISH IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE TRIP BUT SOME TIMES THE FISH JUST DON;T CO-OPERATE. NOT THE GUIDES FAULT. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS TIP YOUR GUIDE.

Be ready for the heat and humidity. Drink lots of water. Ask questions and do what the captain suggests. If it’s your first time, try to go alone or with one other angler at most. You will appreciate the attention and the extra room on the boat. Have fun.

Bay fishing. Many close-by places to go and lots of fish available. Be aware with a full moon and lots of wind at the same time it is not the best combination. But we still caught fish and had a great fresh fish dinner.

Call Capt. Levi Price!!!! He has the local knowledge you would expect when out on the water. When it comes to fishing or even your local hot spots he has the right place in mind. Book in advance and be ready to catch fish.

The half day trip is more than enough for first time off shore fishing. Bring cooler with Gatorade & snacks.

We caught tons of small redfish and a couple of great sized ones, but I’d wait until June/July for the trout!

Wear the appropriate gear for fishing. Good sunglasses, hat, and cover up from the sun.

I'm from Oregon--Love PA. Great places to stay and good food available. The fishing is great and the folks down there are friendly. A local guide, Levi Price is fabulous.

Hire Levi Price. If he's booked, reschedule your trip to when he's open. He's that good.

Get specific instructions to the boat. Morning fishing is best so get out as quick as you can

Use a guide because you never know what the fish are feeding on and were they might be .
