Rember that fishing isn't always successful, be patient and remember that the guide can only place you where they usually are and give you the tools/equipment needed, but in the end it's the fishes decision to bite. Enjoy the experience and take what comes or doesn't and be gracious to your guide, they try their best.

Sharks were biting the best this morning, there were storms the week before we arrived. So I believe the water was a bit chilly. Was fun fighting sharks though!

Awesome time! If you want shark come a little earlier... Trout or other cold water fish come a little later.

More recomend clamming it's a blast but the fishing is good as well. We just didnt get on to many but that's all good.

On top of sunscreen and a small cooler, bring a gym towel for your face and hands. If going clamming, extra socks and a pair of sandals for after.

Use a variety of bait; Book a charter boat to get the best experience (wider area= more chance of catching 'the big one'.
