Make sure to ask your captain what fish to expect or to let them know what fish you would like to Target so you are not disappointed or not expecting something else. We had fun because Capt let us know what was biting and we wanted to just catch fish. It's fun.

Don’t keep setting hooks a lot of people missed fish because they drop down pole and pull up which gives fish a chances to get off.

Bring a small (2-3 gallon) cooler with ice and drinks and also to keep your fish fresh on the way home. They also sell drinks and food.

Book later in summer or fall. A little to early for larger fish. Fished inland near shore would have been better. Out around the islands...
