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!

Check the weather forecast, you may need to layer your clothing...Don't forget your sunscreen and a hat...Bring one cooler for the boat with snacks and drinks...Make sure you remember one cooler in your vehicle for your catch of the day...

To much rain and fresh water from the river, had to put on 26 miles east. Fishing was not good, but our Capt William Davis was great and kept us out 3 hours longer than we booked for trying to find fish for us. I would recommend him.

The St. George Pier is good in the evenings. Shore fishing is hit and miss. Charters are a great break-in to the area.

It was a great fishing experience. Although it is HOT, the water is absolutely beautiful and the fishing isn't bad, either!

First time fishing here, at the right time and the right place you will go home tired from catching fish. It is a very beautyful place with old town charm.

Fishing is excellent, but weather is unpredictable. So bring your raincoat along with your fishing pole.

This isn't the high season for fishing here but you can catch a lot of trout and small sharks in the Bay. Don't know about off shore!

You may catch something or you may not. Been on three fishing trips in Carrabelle and have been lucky on some and caught nothing on others

Go with someone like Captain Charles who will switch up tackle and spots to get what is biting.

Check out the boat sizes before you book. This was by far the nicest/biggest boat we found.
