It was great. There were storms a few days before and it was a bit windy at the end but our captain was a pro in navigating the chop!

Weather was tough most of the week but seas were really much more calm today. Great boat and barely felt the waves!

If you have a 7 y/o fishing for the first time, do an inshore fishing trip. The water isn’t rough, you’ll catch fish, and you’ll see plenty of wildlife and dolphins.

Wind/water conditions changed daily in the spring. Find an experienced/local Captain and he will definitely increase your success. Hurricane Fishing Charters is second to none, he’s the man!

I would recommend doing it. If you have motion sickness make sure you take medicine first.

If the water is cold fishing can be a little slow, but this boat and crew did a great job.

The captain said it was a good time for shark fishing. We got on on shark but lost it. The next one was a very large Sandbar shark, which are protected so we couldn't keep it but we were thrilled for the chance to reel in such a large shark. The weather the day before was not ideal and didn't set us up for the best fishing but the captain kept us on fish as much as possible. Great experience overall!

March was a comfortable time to go fishing, but you can't keep the red snapper or grouper until summer. We had to throw back at least a dozen or more red snapper. If you catch your limit of vermillion snapper within 4 hours, spend the last hour or two going after amberjack and grouper. These big fish are a fun fight.

Understand that depending on the size of the boat and what is in season, you might need to adjust your expectations but you'll have a good time regardless.

Make sure you book for the weekend. We would have had more fish, due to red snapper being limited to weekend restrictions, this time of year.

Bring sun screen; sun gloves; hat; sunglasses; long pants and long sleeve shirt; gator for the neck--otherwords, have a great time but don't get sun burned! Remember water reflection as significant as the overhead sun. Water is excellent and variety is great! Get a guide...they know where the big ones are.

8hr is a long trip but the way to go! You get to fish spots that aren’t over fished like the shorter trips that are at a disadvantage because of time.

Very nice trip. We caught two blacktip sharks, one towards the beginning and one closer to the end of the trip. The wait was relatively long but it was well worth it. Captain was very professional with equipment cleaned and ready to go. Boat was clean as well.
