Tarpon fishing is fun but I like being able to eat what I catch. Lane snapper and Redfish are some of the best eating you'll ever experience. Be willing to adjust on the fly when chartering....people are people and sometimes things happen.

Talk to your captain and tell them what you would like to catch and don’t be bashful on your experience level they will work with you and make it worth your wile and catch fish and have a great trip!

Cool or colder weather not for most beginners. But Captain Gregg will put you on the Bite. He will instruct and guide you. You will see a lot of action. This type of fishing good for all ages. If you can do cold water fishing.

It's not the best time of the year for fishing in the area because it is winter. We know that, but it's when we come to Florida. We caught more fish with Capt Scott this year than we have with other Capt's in several years. We would definitely recommend him in February or any other month of the year.

Come wiht an open mind, don't set your goals too high, otherwise you could dissapoint yourself on a slow day. We were having a good time catching baitfish, then got blown away when we went out to catch sharks!

Bring your snacks and enjoy a great day of fishing. Dayron in no BS...he will put you the fish. Tap into his knowledge of the environment and the fish you are trying to catch.

When the water starts warming up in mid-February, our Captain says more species of fish are active.

It’s HOT. Helps if you have some kind of shade. Fishing in Captiva is great year round, but better in the cooler months!

Do your homework and research your charters. I would probably look for charters with the most reviews so you can make an educated choice on where you spend $400 plus

Try a Tarpon trip. We didn’t fish for them, but they were on the depth finder.
