- Are we guaranteed to catch fish? Can we keep them?
Unfortunately, when dealing with Mother Nature nothing is a guarantee. BUT with our experienced Captains the odds of you not catching fish are very slim. Depending on the time of year you book the targeted species will vary. You do have the option to keep any fish caught within regulations with Florida Fish and Wildlife laws during that time. We will clean and bag them for you after the trip. (We also have a catch and release option if you prefer not to take your fish home with you.)
