Be prepared for extreme heat July and August unless your boat has air conditioning. Go down to the docks and see which boats are bring in fish, and talk to people after their trip in the parking lot.

Look for a boat that is big enough to handle big water. Pat's boat was very comfortable and handles big water great. Fishing isn't always successful every time but Pat and Chris worked hard and kept moving to get us on some fish. Highly recommend.

It was pretty choppy and they had just had a tropical storm so the water was pretty murky and the fish were having a hard time seeing the line. Other than that, we had a good experience.

As I fished this area for the first time on this occasion, O can’t say. However it appears that one should expect high seas during the month of April.

Listen to your Captain. They know these waters like the back of their hand and have spent their entire lives on these waters.

watch the weather, as long as its warm fishing is good, but a cold snap can push the fish south for some time

Have an idea what kind of fishing you want to do, so your captain can tailor it to you.

Take an assortment of clothes because you don't know what the weather might do.

Do a little research to make sure your fish are running, and find out where you need to be to successfully give your self a chance to catch them.

Best time is April and May. We had a great trip but a lot of the near shore fishing was not so great (for all the boats).

Bring right tackle, talk with locals about fish that are biting. Check 2 or 3 weather sites then dress for the weather and plan for changing conditions.

If there is a chance of getting sea sick take the meds early and give the crew of the Crude Intentions a try!!!

Be sure to get an experienced Captain like Cspysin Pat or you may not catch anything.

I would highly recommend the near shore wreck fishing experience for big, good fighting fish.

Booking a charter with a recommended guide. I'd suggest Slightly Obsessed Fishing Chraters.

Check to what is really in season with the captain, not by what the fishing booker website says.
