Book a trip with Captain Ryan at Fin Crazy Charters. Also bring a few poles and fish from the beach. The snook fishing is very good. I mainly threw a 3/8 oz. jighead with a 4" grub. In the morning and evenings, the snook are extremely close to the shore. Within 5 feet of the beach. Took me awhile to figure out they were that close. Would catch 4 or 5 every morning and again in the evening and an occasional redfish as well.

Try different types of fishing. On shore from beach you never know what you will catch. It is my favorite way to fish while relaxing in the sun with a drink! There are plenty of small fish along the shore for youngsters to catch using small hooks and frozen shrimp. it is non-stop action.

Bring a camera. You never can tell what all you may see, from dolphin to huge schools of rays. The fish can be variable depending on the weather, but in 30 years of fishing with Lou Baggett, I have never been "skunked", and have had days my arms and back wore out before the fish.

Only thing I was disappointed about was I didn't know that I should only have a fishing party of 4. I had 6 so we took turns fishing. It worked and captain Tim was very accomodating. We had a great time. I wish there was a way I could tell what the max fishing lines on boats are before booking.

Don't take a bunch of stuff on the boat. A couple of bottles of water per person, maybe a small snack. A small hand towel, sunglasses, camera and a hat. Sunscreen is a must. Leave the rest up to your Captain. Also, Captain Ryan Riegsecker, The Royal Palm Marina and Snook's Bayside Bar and Grill.

If you want to keep your fish, target the months where more species are keepers and allowed.

Do the research and book your trip with a known recommended charter boat. Equipment is usually supplied but verify and don't forget to bring your lunch.
