Watch the weather patterns and try to get a few warm days in a row to make the snook more active. Still early forTarpon and the normally reliable sea trout are still recovering from the red tide last year so maybe next year might be better it you prefer that species. We had a great time catching lady fish when the water temps dipped and put the snook off their feed. Be prepared for some wind this time of year.

Try the inland fishing in the shallows to site fish along the Mangroves, you never know what may be leaving in the shadows of each cast.

Look over the available trips, read the reviews carefully, check out the local fishing web sites to see what is running and be aware of the weather and conditions (same as anywhere you want to fish).

Fishing is fishing--sometimes you have a good day and sometimes you enjoy the view. In our case we had a lot of action but the fish were just short of keepers. But it was a nice day.

It's hot. Don't leave without sunscreen and a shady hat. Otherwise, it's beautiful. Have fun.

It's a transitional time of the year and water temps really affect the species and size of fish. Not to worry though, there are lots of fish but maybe not necessarily lunkers.

With the right guide, catching big fish can be affordable. Snook and jack fish put up a really good fight
