Verify early on that you will be with the captain and the boat that you book here on Fishbooker. Our crew and boat changed the day of the trip, even though I had corresponded with our first captain twice. The boat we took was not nearly as nice as what we booked (the door to the head had to be removed and we just chose not to go in there after that). But it was worth it for a great crew that helped us catch our limit on red snapper.

Ask around for a good Capt. Josh Trejo was great! As soon as we put bait in the water we were catching mangroves and spotted trout, some skip jacks and even a catfish. It was our first trip and we will do it again!

Book a fishing trip during the summer months. Make sure it’s a private charter. The large group fishing trips aren’t fun.

We caught more fish on the beach in the surf than we did on our guided trip. The largest sand trout that I have ever seen, some 14 inches and several black drum.

Tell your Captain what you want to fish for, but take his advice if he says other fish are biting better!

Long sleeves, light pants, hat, gloves, face and neck guards. Even with full coverage, constant sunscreen application is a must! Plus lots of water.

Don't go on a holiday weekend! It's crazy busy. And take motion sickness medicine even if you don't think you'll get sick! I wish I had.

If you want the monsters, pay a little more to go farther out. It was worth it.

Check with guide on where he plans to fish. Could save some boat time by driving to a different ramp for less travel time and more fishing time.

Find the right charter for what you want to do and then ask them when, how long, and where to go. Go with the proven performers that are consistently rated Excellent.

Live bait is best and shrimp was definitely the flavor of the month. Oh of course hat shades and plenty of sunscreen!!
