Stay well hydrated, and make sure you apply sunscreen before getting there. Relax and enjoy yourself! The fish are strong, and it's exciting. Have a great time, and schedule with Captain CJ on the Catchin' Jiants!

They have had lots of rain and it has messed up fishing so would recommend if it has been raining heavily for the past month you might want to try East coast of Florida.
