Went fishing with Mangrove Madness on May 16, 2024
Chose Mangrove Madness charters. Captan Brady is so knowledgeable that I’d even feel comfortable going smog myself to fish this area just after Ike trip out with him. Pack lots of sunscreen, and some snacks too! And wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet!

Bring a jacket in case it's chilly. Temperatures were in the high 50's, low 60's, and "cold" when moving between fishing spots across the bay. Luckily, our Captain Brian had extra jackets to share with us and kept us warm.

Went fishing with Aquatic Escapes – Ruskin on July 17, 2020
All aspects of the trip were excellent. I suggest that any July trip be in the morning only, since afternoon rains are probable. Captain Jarrod was pleasant, knowledgeable, and put ous onto fish for the entire trip. J. W. Wilde

Went fishing with Captain Cody's Charters on February 22, 2024
A private charter is definitely the way to go, and Cody was the best! We’ve tried a few different charters and the experience with Captain Cody was by far our best experience.

Know when the tide is coming in and going out. Guys at the bait shops are helpful. Even the charter captains will give you tips if you talk to them.

Use the guide's expertise to make the most of a marginal fishing day. Without Capt. Chris, I'd be having bait tacos tonight instead of blackened snapper tacos.

You will be fishing in the bay, so theres no need for a 30' boat. Waves are pretty calm .
