Even though we were told that fishing isn't catching (with no guarantees), we caught the fish we targeted because we managed our expectations, and chartered a boat with the right captain.

Just ask lots of questions, in case there is a type of fish you’re looking to catch.

Not worth trolling in the beginning to mid-June—we tried for an hour fishing for mahi and didn’t get a single bite—end up bottom fishing and had a blast for the next 2.5 hours.

I would recommend that you take more than a half-day trip, time flies out there. If I could do it again I would do a longer trip ?

Lance told us that April is a pretty "dry" fishing month, but we just wanted to get out and relax on the water. Mission accomplished.

Pack a cooler and let go to work. Bring sunblock and let the captain go to work. You might just make a friend

Be prepared to fish hard and remember you and your captain are at the mercy of the ocean and in the end you can't make them bite ?
