Waters are a little more rough in May as opposed to the summer months but a little more choppy waters get the fish more active. Quality over quantity during the month of May.

Decide if you want to fish the Atlantic Ocean side but make sure it is a calm day or the Florida Bay/ mangrove side which is quieter with different kinds of fish like snook, mangrove snapper sea trout, redfish etc.

Chartering a full day to give yourself the best chance at a successful charter - fishing in late February and early March is spotty.

Just get out there. Tell the captain what you’re looking to do and they’ll point you in the right direction.

I was given advice from friends that fishing above the keys would not be that ideal. However, we had a great time and expect to catch more fish in the area soon.

This was our first trip so my only suggestion is to keep an open mind as to what you will be happy bringing home. There are many Excellent to Very Good species of fish to catch. Even if you don't catch exactly what you go out for it is likely you are going to catch some really good eating fish!
