Paul’s shorter trips, you’ll be staying close to the shoreline to maximize your time with rod in-hand. These trips are great for young anglers! Bluefish, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Kingfish will be your primary targets. Be sure to bring a personal cooler, you’ll want to take these fillets back home with you!
