There are numerous types of fish to be caught off the coast of Florida, according to Guy Riordan. “That’s why it is important to choose the right charter adventure,”. An avid outdoorsman, Riordan has appeared on nationally syndicated television shows and is a one time gaming preserve owner.
According to owner, various charter companies provide different fishing adventures. And what the charter companies can offer, says Guy Riordan, may also depend upon the current season. “Take the snook for example,”. “If those are caught in the ‘off season’ from May 1st till September 1st, they have to be released.” Many good fishing charter companies will know the good times of year in which to catch a particular fish.
As well, adds Guy Riordan, a charter company can educate a novice fisherman on the types of fish and what sort of challenge will be given. “Take a tarpon for example, you cannot eat them, but they are known for their fight and huge leaps out of the water”. A redfish is another fish known to test even the most experienced fisherman. “Whereas the sea trout is most likely to end up on a plate and are a great beginning fisherman fish,” compares Guy Riordan. A good saltwater fishing charter company will help any experienced level fisherman with their knowledge.
While targeting a particular species, says Guy Riordan, a fisherman can expect to catch other sorts of fish. “Snapper, gag and types of grouper will probably be snagged when fishing off the coast of Florida,”. According to Riordan, it just comes with saltwater fishing that while targeting a particular species, other fish common to the area will be caught.
“I would also suggest selecting a charter company with U.S. Coast Guard approval,” notes Guy Riordan. For the avid outdoorsman, this approval means that safety is ensured. “Even better is finding a fishing charter company where a majority of the captains have attained their Master Captain’s license from the Coast Guard,”.
“On the day of the trip, people need to bring plenty of sunscreen and plenty of water to drink,” cautions Riordan. A hat and polarized sunglasses for the sun and a jacket for the often-quick sea rainstorm is recommended as well. “Safety and protection is first, and then having a great experience is next in the line of priorities,” concludes Guy Riordan.
