As usual. Follow the birds and the tide. We had a great time, fished near the east end of the canal and out around Race Point. Full day of fishing, worth every minute.

Follow the Captain's information closely as to the fish you are going to target in order to manage your expectations. Unfortunately we didn't get the opportunity to pull lobster pots as expected.

We did well in September, but the captain said June and July would be better for Haddock. Even though we caught some haddock, we hope to be back during peak season.

Dress in layers and prepare for a somewhat bumpy ride. Worth it for the fish, though!

Definitely go with St. Pete charters and pay attention to the gear list and directions with regard to sun screen etc. This will make things much more fun for you. Captain Doug will ensure you have a great time!!!

Come prepared for different types of weather. It might be a little cooler in the morning than you would expect.

Very good for what you get, a fee hidden costs but avoidable if you bring your own gear

Make sure you dress appropriately. You can always take clothes off. Also you never know fog and mist conditions once your on the water so bring a rain/windbreaker type jacket. That being said be prepared for sun. Doesn't take long on the water to burn. Bring some snacks and hydrating beverages as well as your cocktails. Have fun and enjoy the day on the water if the fish or biting or not. It is what it is nature does what it wants. Cheers

Keep expectations reasonable - our first attempt at a trip here was cancelled due to windy/unsafe conditions. We persevered and succeeded on our second attempt with a dream fishing day!

Be sure to understand if there is a bathroom on board the boat. It may be an issue on 3 to 4 hour trip for some people.

Book an experienced charter that knows the waters well because the fishing can be great in some location but dead in others.
