Bring a good attitude and have fun! The Captains do their best and of course want you to catch fish but they can't force the fish to bite. So be a good sport. Catching does make your day more exciting though. Also, wish I would have applied more sunscreen. Ha

Easy access from the city and three state region. Dress in layers for the rides if it isn't sunny. We traveled 10 minutes in the boat to our spot and immediately were landing reds. The charter captain makes access and trip an enjoyable experience.

Use a charter, unless you know the waters very well. There aren't a lot of defined canals here which would make navigation easier.

Definitely use a guide service. Captain Dave read the water and weather conditions and kept me in the fish.

If it's in December make sure you're dressed for it if your going out in the morning.

Expect to mainly catch redfish. The other species are possible to catch, but not as likely.

Weather can change pretty fast, be ready w/ rain gear and you will be comfortable, rain usually passes quickly.
