1. Know the type of fish you want to target
South Florida is home to over 70 species of saltwater fish, and each is unique in their own way. Knowing exactly which fish you’d like to target has an influence on where exactly you’ll be fishing. There are options to go fishing in daytime or nighttime. Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, and Ten Thousand Islands are excellent spots to fish, there you can find Tarpon, Snook, Snapper, Jacks, Bonefish, Barracuda, Sea Trout, Redfish, and several other fishes. It’s also important to know their catch-and-release policy or who gets to take the fish home, this way you ensure you’re in the same page.
2. Make sure they have the necessary equipment
If you’re not a seasoned angler and don’t have any fishing equipment, make sure you book a charter that has everything you need to have this fun experience. Look for a charter that has all the gear you’re going to need, quality rods and reels, artificial and live bait, and tackle. Make certain they have life jackets too. As well as important extras that tend to be overlooked like sunblock, bug spray, and ponchos in case of rain.
