During the winter we mainly fish for large Trout and Redfish. The Trout fishing at this time of the year is insane. It’s not uncommon to catch 50 or 60 Trout in two hours of fishing. These Trout can sometimes be up to 30 inches long and weigh almost 10 pounds. The Redfish fishing during the winter is not as good as the Trout fishing, but they are available to catch. The Snook fishing can be slow during the winter months because they are very sensitive to the cold weather.
All of our charters include your license, bait and tackle.
