Great trip! My son and Captain Jim bonded immediately. After trying to make me a fisherman, Captain Jim accepted failure with dignity . Luc and Captain Jim were able to catch enough Mahi to satisfy our taste for fish. If you want to learn about the ocean and learn how to catch fish, then Captain Jim is the charter to book. It was a pleasure to spend the day fishing with a man with similar old fashioned American values as myself. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS CAPTAIN JIM.

Beautiful crystal clear water, fish are plentiful but Mother Nature is not to be messed with. We saw a huge water spout touchdown not far from us for about 6-7 minutes. Storms come out of nowhere and the currents are strong. If you are inexperienced hire a guide

Research your guides, and come when the timing is optimum for the species you are after. Give yourself two or three days to fish.

If you’re going to target tarpon, definitely wait until March-April. I came at the end February and it was just a tiny bit too early

The cold snap and high winds affected the fish so best to go when the water temperature is higher. Obviously can't always be planned in advance.

Check into the local bait shops and find out the current trends and locations for the best fishing because it is always changing.

Go to the No Name Pub while there. the food is good and the place has a great vibe to it. Tarpon fishing under the bridge was excellent as well!!!
