If fishing was easy it would be called catching! You never know if you are going to catch fish when you go out on a trip. We caught many fish, I lost count on the total number. We caught stark, bull reds and catfish.

First time anglers in this area should use a guide to get them up to speed on equipment, baits, lures and techniques. It will minimize the time to be successful and maximize the enjoyment of the outing.

Meet up with captain Marshal booker he is a great captain and I’m sure he’d be more than happy to show anyone how to fish! Young or old Marshal could show them the ropes and get many fish in the boat.

Weather was perfect, not as humid not salty as expected. We stayed in Surfside at a great rental and ate at Seahorse Bar & Grill. Rental was fabulous and grill was also very good - right on the beach. Great time in Freeport.

No matter how “avid of a fisherman” you are, allow the guide to be the professional and develop a relationship to make it more enjoyable for both!

Take something for motion sickness day before and day off. Bring rain gear, bring food and plenty of electrolytes and do not drink alcohol night before or during your trip.

We caught lots of fish, but would have enjoyed a few bull reds. Can't guarantee what will be caught though.

We did federal waters, catch and release, while the season is closed. The fish were hungry enough we couldn't keep them off our hooks. If you don't need anything to take home, that's the way to go.

Spend as much time as possible. The more time you spend the more fish you'll catch. Fish with live shrimp for bait.

Take care in July carry ice with towels to protect from the heat. Wrap a wet towel around your neck and drink plenty of water

Have someone who knows what they are doing. We had no clue on what it all took to shark fishing on land. It was an amazing trip.

8 miles out the water is very clear and it is very relaxing. The drop method of fishing is very fun.

Keep an open mind and listen to your captain. I wanted to catch a variety of fish because I was bringing 1st timers. Weather changes and fish migrate. We still got reel time.

Sounds like March is a bit in between seasons for fishing. Have reasonable expectations and you’ll still have a great trip.

Contact Captain and ask which species of fish being targeted. Request what species you would like to fish for.

Set in the back of the boat, take plenty of water to drink and don't forget your $2 for the toll road.

We didn't get the snapper we were looking for, but the King more than made up for it with a good bite. We were hooked up in less than 5 minutes.

It’s spring when I went, weather is never predictable and neither is fishing! Water was a little choppy on the way out. Fishing with the dolphins playing was a neat experience.

Watch the heat. Excessive heat advisories. It can sneak up on you quickly and make you sick
