Went fishing with Capt JB’s Charters on July 31, 2023
We were new to the area and booked a random fishing trip. We have a 7 year old and 9 year old boy very new to this kind of fishing. Captain John kept these boys baited and in the water catching trout after trout! He then noticed the fish had slowed and took us to an island to cool of and collect awesome shells and hermit crabs(even gave us a bag to collect with). Then, we docked at little st George and toured it for a bit. He told us about a pond with gators and we saw 4 or 5 babies! Then, he took us to see a couple dolphins that got within a couple feet of boat and blew up at us! Then, we followed him back to his house and he cut and cleaned and bagged our fish. He recommended a restaurant that’ll cook them for us and it was delicious. All of these charters are NOT the same! Book this guy and be done with it! He was great! Thanks again John! See you next time.

Marcus is a fantastic captain. He knows where the fish are going to be and we caught an incredible variety of species. It was a fun, relaxing and productive fishing experience just as we had hoped. We laughed at how many different types of fish we were catching. It was quite surprising.

Be ready to catch fish, be ready to reel fast. If you don't the sharks will eat your catch and you will loose your line . By the time we were done we were exhausted from all the catching we did. We did a 6hr trip about 45 min off shore.. We will go back this time of year again.

Due to unstable spring weather in this area ie: high winds, stained bay waters I highly recommend choosing an off shore charter ( greater than 9 miles out) for clear blue off shore waters to fish in. From June until the end of regulation season Snapper and Grouper fishing can't be beat!

Bring appropriate clothing, getting wet is possible and wet and cold is miserable and dangerous. Otherwise listen to the Capt. And leave the bananas at the dock!

Pay attention to the weather, and keep in touch with your Captain until your trip. You will be satisfied.

Give Tideline Charters a call! Wayne Cook was great. Early morning fishing when the weather is clear and the water calm is your best bet. Or right after a rain!

When we talked to the Capt, he mentioned that this time of the year is a 50/50 chance. The water didn't get warm enough for the fish to start to flow. But it was nice for my first time.

Be prepared to be hot unless you fish early or late. And the weather can change quickly.

If you're prepared for sun and heat, you'll be fine, as the fish are still there and active.

Do not fish in the bay unless you want to only catch white trout. Go in the gulf.
