What anglers said about fishing in Chandeleur Islands

The bite was great, but the fish were all pretty small. It was a great time catching the fish, we just didn't get to keep many.

Due to the high winds, we wasn't able to go Snapper fishing but Captain Brandon and Brandon made sure we caught fish. Highly recommend Shearwater. This was our 5th trip and we are planning a 6th trip with Captain Brandon and the Shearwater...

We were fishing just to catch fish. We caught a lot of catfish, a few croaker and one nice redfish. Our fishing experience was excellent! Next time we’ll fish for gamefish only. ?

Great area to fish for a wide variety of fish in shore or off shore. Check what fish are in season when you plan on visiting then pick your charter based on that.

Offshore in a boat this small is not for a newbie. We had two newbie friends with us and they are proud of the bragging rights they earned. Definitely a trip for fishermen who will brave rough conditions to get the best memories and fish. If ins one. You will have many tales to tell. PS- one of our newbies caught the biggest Red Snapper

Have reasonable expectations wherever you fish. It's called fishing, not catching. We caught plenty!

As with any time of the year, great fishing on the Coast depends a lot on the weather conditions. Some months better than others but there are always plenty of fish to catch.

Don't have to travel far to find fish in Long Beach; however, the action could have been better.

In April... check the wind and temperature forecast before booking! A cold windy day would make this experience tough and on the opposite side of relaxing!

If you are a beginner this is not the trip for you. But if you know how to fish this is a wonderful trip. Captain Dominic was awesome.
