It’s an awesome time to go in July with the exception if there is any type of turbulence in the atmosphere such as what was encountered by us, some Highwinds thunder and lightning I would recommend exactly what our captain recommended. Wait an extra day if need be, and I have an amazing day the next, when things are calm, it’s the best experience ever hands-down.

If you might get sea sick take some Dramamime about an hour before you go. Make sure to wear sun screen and bring water to drink and some hand wash or wipes if you like to hold your own fish for pictures. ;o)

Use squid and once you feel a pattern change on the rod firmly set the hook and reel in a firm cycle

Manage your expectations. If you are going out for a 4 hour trip don’t expect to be pulling in a marlin. However Captain Mac got on fish immediately and we were catching fish the whole time.

Summers can be tough for fishing, we opted to try for sharks and had a blast. What a workout !

Take motion sickness medicine ahead of time. Wear sneakers and sunscreen. Bring a sweatshirt and towel incase you get wet. Bring a cooler to take home the fish !

They do provide bait and buckets. They can fillet and ice fish. Bring a cooler, snacks and drinks with you.

Go far offshore if you can. May be spotty close to the reef at this time of year. Better to spend 2x and go big than 1x and go home unsatisfied.

If the west wind is blowing, make sure you bring fly spray, or clothing to cover your legs. They find you, even miles offshore!

Know before you go. Research your charter and have an idea what you want out of the trip.

Ask to see what is in season and target that. Work the location in with the targeted fish as well.

Captain Mac was a good boating experience, we did catch fish, but I was hoping for flounder.
