Lots of fish to keep but if you’re looking to take fish home, probably not a lot to stock your freezer.

The weather was a little chilly and foggy but it didn’t stop the fun or the fishing! Definitely recommend a jacket for the boat ride if the temp is in the 70s as it was warm on shore but I didn’t think about the wind from the water and the boat ride.

We learned the water is just warming up in April, so there is not as many fish to catch.

For the conditions the fishing was good. We went into this trip with low expectations but our captain did great putting us on fish. When I come back I will probably wait until April when the water temp is a little bit warmer.

If it is overcast the day of the trip, wear appropriate clothing (jacket/sweater) as the ride out can be a little cool.

Winter trips - keep in mind you can still get a sunburn even when it’s cold. It’s at least 15 degrees colder on the water than on shore, so be sure to dress accordingly- especially for wind!

Great variety! It was super windy the day we went out so we were limited a little travel wise, but we still had plenty of places to go and caught a good variety of fish.

Very hot, be prepared. The guide/captain has great experience; don't try to snow him with your own knowledge of the activity. Listen and pay attention -- you'll absolutely learn some things you never knew and you may be able to catch a few fish as well!

I would recommend going in to a trip with an open mind. Don't always expect to catch a bunch but to have fun and make memories.

Don’t book too long of a trip thinking it will be better to catch your limit. Take it easy at first and you will be surprised how quickly your bait gets hit.

Reccomend that you schedule a trip ahead of time. It gets real tight to get a trip in if you try to schedule with in the week.
