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.

Going out with Captain Rob would be fine for first-timers or experienced fishermen. He knows the spots where the fish are and is able to teach the skills to catch them.

Great location to fish. Leaving under the north causeway bridge by some beautiful houses with large boats and out of Ponce Inlet with jetties on both sides and the lighthouse is great. Seeing the hotels/condos of New Smyrna and Daytona is really nice. Add in a bunch of fish and this is a great trip.

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

We were novices, but the fish were biting all day. We didn't catch anything big, but we caught a huge variety of fish, which made it a fun day.

Just have fun being on the water, and the catch will be icing on the cake.

Fish with someone who knows the back area unless your hitting up Ponce inlet. We like the mangrove for the kids.

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!

Pray for a day that was not so windy and cold. Captain Gary did an excellent job under challenging conditions. Filleting the sheepshead must have been brutal in the cold wind. I would not hesitate to go fishing with Gary again.

Be sure to take sea sickness meds before the trip. Bring layers as it can be chilly in the morning trip out to the fishing spot. Bring a cushion to sit on, the seats are not padded. Bring water and a light lunch if it's an all-day trip. Bring binoculars to view sea animals while out on the ocean. Bring gloves for holding on the the pole and fish!
