Trip at a Glance
Florida, United States
Departure Day(s) and Time(s)
- Learn to catch bait and Snook from the beginning of the process
- Experience "Angler's Heaven"
A typical day on this Florida fishing charter starts out with catching bait. I am an expert in throwing a cast net and in a short period will fill the live wells with bait. I will instruct you in every facet of Florida flats fishing from how to catch “Shiners,” to skipping your bait under the Mangroves for Snook with a bad attitude. After we load up the live wells with bait, the hunt begins. They say he who has the most chum (shiners) wins, and what this means is this – You troll up to a promising hole on a mangrove island and you proceed to toss out handfuls of live bait. This starts a feeding frenzy where every type of fish around will come to your spot in search of a free meal. The end result is fish busting the bait on the surface in an unbelievable show of power and fury. Multiple hookups result and this is what I call “angler’s heaven”. The best part is that you never know what type of fish your going to catch, as all fish in Pine Island Sound feed on Shiners. In the same spot on numerous casts you might hook Snook, Trout, Reds, Snapper, Grouper, Sharks, Flounder, Tarpon, and who knows what else.
