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.

If you want a good day out on the water, smell the salt air and enjoy the good weather this is the place to go.

Fishing this time of year isn’t always the best because of the colder temperatures. But there are still plenty of fish and plenty of action and tight lines to be had.

Not a crazy amount of fish as expected in the off season but our captain knew where we could make some catches

Book with Capt Mike. We caught more than I expected. Whiting and sheepshead. Wear a hat and sunblock. Even in winter my face got slightly burnt

Listen to Captain Mark, because he knows where the fish are, and how to catch them. Bring a light jacket to keep you comfortable when underway. Take fish pictures before you clean them.

Do the morning trip! It gets real hot in the afternoon. Nick suggested the morning after we booked the afternoon and I’m glad we went with his suggestion.

Wear a hat and put on good, greasless sunscreen. Bring plenty of non-alcoholic beverages and hydrate each time your guide changes spots.

If you’re looking for a particular species then study up on the state season of it. Colder months get more activity than hot months.

I would definitely take a chater if you want to catch fish the captain's are local and have their own spots.

You’d be a fool not to give Captain Dave a chance to show you how your fishing trip is supposed to be!

Yes, be sure to keep an eye on your depth finder. There are a lot of sand bars, so for your boat not good.....fishing awesome.

If fishing in July it is best to not necessarily expect to catch the fish you’re targeting thus referring it to fishing versus catching. Captain Mike was very informative and very helpful.

Weather conditions can affect ability to go offshore fishing. Full moon can also decrease ability to catch fish.

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!

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.

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.
