I haven’t fished in FL much but come to find out that when it’s cold here the fish get sluggish and not interested in eating much. Now we know but Robert got us on the fish regardless and we had a great spotted sea trout dinner.

Polaroid sunglasses, water proof bag to store all you carry on board, rod belt to make reeling in easier, sun screen (remember to reapply to face, ears, neck and hands, camera, long sleeve light colored shirt, cap with rap-around-bill, protein bars, oranges, pee can. There's more but these are the items that I remembered to bring and some I wish I had remembered to bring

Get with your Captain to see when he would suggest going out. Considering the tides and time of day.

Its hot! The fish were not wanting to bite for us. Fishing is very dependant on the tide. The scenery all around is beautiful.

Communicate w/ you Capt about the tides & weather if you’re serious about fishing! So much activities in this fishing town.

Absolutely! The captain was fantastic teaching us what to do, how to cast, and how to reel in. Anyone who wants to do something fun out on the water should try it.

Capt. Recommend a different lake as the conditions and bite was better at another lake other than lake tarpon and it paid off as we caught quality fish.

I was actually fishing in Kissimmee, but when going out on a charter with A Horizon Charters on any body of water the fishing is going to be great!

Listen to Cpt. Brent. He’s extremely knowledgeable and will put you on the fish as long as you do what he says.

Lots of water and sunscreen in the captain. I’ll take care of the rest. Captain John was great.
