Check in with the captain to determine whether or not deep sea or bay fishing would be better for that day. The bite was probably better in the sound then out in the ocean, so be willing to switch and work with a captain. Also if you don't have one already buy long sleeve fishing shirts with hoods.

Be open to what is biting. Red snapper season was going on, but had been hammered the weekend before I went so we added some Shark and redfish into mix. All in all a very good time to catch numbers and quality. Fish.

Leave your towels in your car because they may get soaked on the trip. Ensure everyone eats something before going to avoid sea sickness, and consider bringing light snacks like crackers, as well as Gatorade and water.

If you can swing a longer trip (even a 5hr vs a 4hr) it will be worth it! The extra time allows you to get further out especially if the waters are a little rough. But, for a first time experience, the 4hr trio is a great one to experience but it will definitely leave you wanting more. Time goes quickly!

It was absolutely a great experience. Fishing in the early morning might be a better idea and don't expect that you will find the type of fishes you want. Availability are varies and it's always a surprise on what you will reel in. As first timer, just be patience if you haven't able to catch anything on the first try

Catching fish is never guaranteed. Go into it with low expectations and that way you are never disappointed.

We were limited on what we could catch and go because of my wife’s vertigo but Captain Barry made the experience fun and fantastic

Take Dramamine 30 min to an hour before to prevent sea sickness. Wear sunscreen and sun protective clothing. Take drinks and snacks.

The fishing is good. Check on what is allowed to be kept if you want to keep your catch. We did not and went for big fish and Captain Chuck Madden delivered!!!

We were in Destin for a week and got one day when the wind was calm enough to go out. Fishing this time of year here is great but hard to plan in light of the variability in the wind.

The only thing I would do different is get a little bigger of a boat if it's available

Be patient and make sure to come in during snapper season. June is an awkward time.
