Do a great deal of homework and be very clear of the trips expectations before leaving the dock. The captain explained to us the fish move and everything changes in April. Fishing can be terrible and we spent a lot of money for nothing.

Book a charter, make sure boat has toilet facilities. 3 hours was enough for most of our group and we caught fish that were large enough for our group. If you want larger sharks you will need to go into the ocean and will be a longer and rougher trip. Intercoastal waterway is very calm.

Not the best season to fish in HH, unless you like catching shark. Either stay in shore for redfish or trout, or you'll need a longer trip (at least 5 hours) to get to the nearest reef. Mackerel and Jack can be found, but be prepared to to appreciate the experience without filling the boat!

Fish weren’t biting and we caught several small fish, but Captain Tim made it as easy and enjoyable as could be! Definitely going to be loyal to him in our future excursions. Booking website, however, kept canceling; charters would say they have openings and then would cancel after we reserved, saying they didn’t. :-(

If I had it to do over I would have hit the offshore bite. Inshore bite is a bit off during the summer months.

Take guide trip...june can be a little tough to catch, and knowing where they are is a big help. Have tried fishing in HH myself, and having a guide is the way to go.

I've seen the pics - we didn't do as well as others, but that's why its called fishing and not catching.

Dont go out expecting to catch a fish, just enjoy the experience. You'll probably catch something....wear sunscreen and bring water!

Go with an experienced charter boat if you want to catch fish. Islands and Tides would be tough to beat!

Spend the time and money on a 6-8 hour trip. Our 4 hour trip was to a place that is over fished.

Make yourself familiar how to handle a shark or stingray if you go out own your own.
