If you’ve never booked a charter and you want one of the good ol boys to show you the ropes book with Cody Reinhardt. I recommend take you a couple waters and snacks and have fun. It’s fishing so don’t expect fish that’s something you can’t control just expect to have knowledge shared and a chance. You will have a great time. Especially the kids.

Make for sure they are going to try to catch the kind of fish that you want not just riding around in circles catching a few little fish for hours and then finally go and let you catch a small shark then it's time to leave

We actually went out of Little River. My wife was a bit hesitant to make the trip, as she became sick many years ago on a boat. Our trip was on Fish Hook II, which was a great size for our group and is a perfect size for a family, including children. The wife did great and was very happy with the trip. Everyone enjoyed the trip. I took a trip with one of my daughter's about 5 years ago. The boat was over crowded, exhaust fumes were bad, and my daughter got sick. I did extra research this time to ensure we didn't have a similar experience. This is how I found Fish Hook II and it was an excellent choice for us. This was the first trip for 3 of our party, and a first time fishing (of any kind) for one. We all had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this boat and the experience to anyone considering a fishing trip.

If this is your first time fishing, make sure and wear shoes that you do not care to get wet. Make sure to take sunscreen. We took a small cooler with some drinks and snacks. I always get carsick and I wound up taking a Dramamine before the trip, I did not get sick at all. And it was a little bumpy at times. I would suggest just to have some on hand.

Always go out in the ocean with an open mind. It’s not always going to be a perfect catch but keep trying. My captain was Brandon and the first mate was Holden. Ask for them they are professional and treat you great.

Small charters are the way to go. Don't reserve a charter that takes 20+ people at once. Our boat took 6 people and it was perfect. If you're looking to catch the big stuff, reserve a full day trip to get out far enough on the ocean, and take 6 people because there's a limit to how many fish each person can keep.

If the weather is the slightest bit questionable before or during your chosen trip don't go out. The water was very choppy which made me very nervous having a small child with me. Even though I felt we could trust the crew.

I would recommend that anglers check the fishing season. We realized after we booked the charter that what we were fishing for was not in season. We are inexperienced anglers so we really didn’t expect to catch many fish anyway!I would also recommend that they check the reviews before booking. One of the reasons we chose Captain Lee was due to the positive reviews that he received.

Short trips can't go out as far. Spending a little more to go on the 1/2 day even the full day trips are better for the more experienced fisherman. Short trips are great for the kids to learn and get used to the boating experience.

If you want to go for the experience of catching fish go to a party boat because it is less expensive and you catch the same small fish that have to be released. If you want to catch game fish go somewhere else. If you want to cook your catch, buy them at a fish market!

Find out when is the best time to come fish in the area and when is good for what you want to catch. And book a full day instead of half a day so you can go farther out and have better chance of catching more and bigger fish

Check the weather! If you're doing the charter talk with the captain about your time slot. If he's any good he'll tell you how the water is and how the fish are biting. Then have you make the choice.

Recommend going out in the morning and fishing the backwater if you want to catch dinner for the family/gang. We were NOT disappointed!

The boat ride thru the inter-coastal Little River area is beautiful! Lots of fish and I recommend to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Book a charter so you can get the feel of how you can better catch these ocean fish

If booking in spring/early summer, no one can predict what weather and water conditions will be throughout the day. That being said, trust your captain and be kind if conditions turn unfavorable.

Book with Captain Brad, and plan for at least a 10 hour trip. It is just the right amount of actual fishing. Long ride out, but totally worth it.

I'd recommend not doing the near shore fishing trips, the fish just aren't big enough. Although it takes more time to get further out from shore, I think it's the better option.

Just be prepared & make sure you take or have anti- nausea meds. A lot of people can get motion sickness quickly.

Spend a full day fishing, it takes about 45-60 minutes to get from the marina to the good ocean spots! Weather was good and only slightly windy.
