If you are going offshore fishing for the first time, I suggest taking a shorter trip to make sure you don't get seasick. It's a different ballgame when you are over 30 miles out. Not everyone can handle it.

Fished offshore with Joe and had a fantastic time. Captain Joe put us on many species including King, Cobia, Grunt and others. Went home with fish dinner for days! Great boat and captain! Will be going again. Thanks Joe.

I'm sure there are more plentiful seasons, but it has been a great experience for us 2 years in a row. We are out for the fun and memories, and if we get a mess of fish for the table even better- we've accomplished that 2 years in a row.

Its tough to tell. It was nice and warm but the wind made the whole day tough. I will need another trip to make a great assessment

Research fishing charter in pricing and if there is contingency if expected trip is not met

This is a great place to go fishing but the summer months is not the greatest for catching the best fish, which is anywhere you go. We plan on a fall or winter trip.

Dress accordingly. Sunscreen, if you need to reapply, remember to bring lotion, not the spray Listen to the captain and you will catch fish

The heat of mid-summer on the Gulf Coast of South Florida can be difficult if you are looking to fill your cooler, but Mangrove Snapper and Blacktip Shark can make some fine eating.

This is great fishing even if you don't want to go all the way out in the ocean. There are so many areas and the charters know where to take you.

Dress in layers because it is cool when that boat moves this time of year and bring sunscreen even if you don't think you need it!

I'm not an expert, but I think Fort Myers would have something to offer year round.

Go on a chartered trip if budget allows if not ask local bait shop where the fish are biting .
