Ask others what to expect. Find out what time of day is the best time to go out, whether to go offshore, and whether the present conditions are conducive to catching what they are targeting. I would not recommend the trip we took, but that isn't to say that trying a different time of day and a longer period wouldn't be better.

Start out with a 4 hr trip to get your feet wet with deep sea fishing. Be prepared if you have rough seas. Dramamine is your friend!

Check out recreational red snapper in Federal waters. Fish for red snapper in 75 to 80 feet of water.

Water is a little cool for strong bite but the fish are out there and it's still better than fishing up north this time of year LOL!

Don't expect large fish. There is however a variety of fish. That makes it fun.

Be patient! Fishing is about being patient and that can be hard trait sometimes. Listen to the boat captain and crew they will teach you everything you need to know.

Be sure you have nausea medication....the patch did not work for us! And bring water! We brought mostly sodas and that isnt good when you get sea sick! Now we know :)

Pick a comfortable boat with AC. The Ocean can lay down and be glass smooth in July but that also means no breeze.

Get a good guide that grew up fishing the Port Orange waters, knowing where the fish will be is 95% of a successful fishing trip. Age doesn't always provide the required knowledge.

Pay a little extra and take the nearshore charter. The bigger fish aren't in the backwaters yet
