For years I have been wanting to go on a bay fishing charter. This year I decided to finally make it happen. I did some research and quickly found they seemed to be about the same price. Since Capt. Fleming rated highly on TripAdvisor I let that be the deciding factor (in a addition to a good phone conversation with him).
Due to scheduling on my side we chose to go on an afternoon trip with my family (wife and 11/13 yr old boys), my brother and my father. He warned me this might be a too many for everyone to fish but we played nice with each other and took turns. Four is probably the ideal number since you are all fishing off the same side of the boat and need room to cast.
We drove out on the bay for about 20 minutes and then stopped to start our fishing. We used live shrimp which was a little difficult for us at first (hooking it was hard for the kids but they got used to it) and Capt Flemming was very patient and helpful. Over the course of the trip we fished in four different spots and everyone caught something. Most were throw backs but we got 2 large redfish, a very large trout and another smaller trout.
Once back at the dock Capt Fleming cleaned and fileted the fish and taught us all how to do it (and walked my older son through it so he could complete his fishing merit badge). We had enough fish to feed 8 people and still leftovers.
This was such an incredible experience I don't know why i didn't do this sooner and i can't wait to do it again! RECOMMENDED!
