Probably should go out in the morning if serious about catching lots of fish. Afternoons can be hit or miss. We chose the afternoon because we wanted a leisurely trip on the water without huge expectations for a big catch.

Florida has great fishing all year. Unless you have your own boat and are a native and know where to fish it just makes sense to hire a guide. You could easily go fishing 2 times a month and just get on the boat, catch fish and go home all for less than the cost of a boat payment.

The Bonita were everywhere, and though not a prized catch, they are a lot of fun on light tackle. Sharks are plentiful as well. We caught one King Mackerel and had several others hooked up. Inshore and near shore Snook fishing and fantastic also

Watch what you are charged for and make sure you get what you purchase. COUNT your baits that you pay dearly for.

Lots of great fishing inshore on light tackle. You dont have to go into ocean and big waves to catch fish.

Research your charters just in case weather conditions aren't in your favor, so you still bring home a trophy and plenty to eat!!

Weather was beautiful, but it was a little rough on the ocean. Our overall experience was pleasurable and one we would do again and recommend to others.

Find a knowledgeable captain with experience to get you on fish. If you only go for the big game fish, four to five our trips might not be long enough.

Do your research before hiring someone. Don't be totally enamored with the pictures and videos posted. Those are always the best of the best pics and videos.

Be ready for any kind of weather. Even in the worst conditions you should still be able to locate fish!

Winter fishing can be a little slow. Cold fronts and full moons can affect fishing. Book with Captain Willie.

Fishing doesn't get any better or convenient than West Palm. Research you captain and tip your mates.

It's a good inlet to boat and the ocean drops of rapidly there... so your in the gulfstream quickly.

If you like catching fish, Bonita fishing during the months of June and July are excellent! You can honestly get tired of catching fish if that's even possible.

Be patient because the fishing changes with the wind and get a good local guide.
