I've never gone charter fishing before, what's a good way to start?

Ask a ton of questions. A quality charter fishing captain will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Having a conversation with the fishing charter captain is a good way to find out if you want to charter fishing with them. Local bait shops are also a good source of information. The staff there can offer a lot of information on fishing advnetures.

What if I have never been fishing before?

No problem! Although the fish cought on a fishing charter can be pretty big, the equipment used on-board is typically easy to use. You'll receive plenty of instructions how to use the equipment and tips on fighting the fish, but feel free to ask as many questions as you would like. In just about every case, the cpatain and crew want you to get as much out of your trip as you do!

What can I expect to pay and what's included?

The prices are going to depend on the different captains, boat size and the different trips (1/2, 3/4 or full day). Most offshore boats of the same size charge about the same, when searching for your charter make sure you call arround for pricing. The price tipically includes everything (bait, tackle, licenses, ice, etc) except the tip, the standard tip is 15-20% in the fishing charter industry.

Do I have to buy an expensive out-of-state fishing license?

No. The license is usually included (In the fishing charter business, the boat is typically licensed for charter fishing).

What should I bring on my fishing charter?

All you will need is sunblock, a hat, food, drink and a camera! All fishing equipment, ice, tackle and bait will is typically provided.

I've heard

Inshore refers to fishing shallow and protected waters of the intercoastal waterway. The most common fish caught are Snook, Trout, Redfish and Tarpon. Offshore, also called 'deep-sea fishing,' involves heading out into deeper waters of the Gulf of Mexico, anywhere past 10-15 miles in this area. The fish generally targeted are Grouper, Snapper, Amberjacks, and King Mackeral, but that is just a short list of what is out there. When fishing offshore, it is fairly common to hook something that you have to wait to get up to the boat to determine what it is! Because of the fuel costs and typically the need for a more seaworthy boat, offshore charters run 50% higher than inshore.

How many people can come on the fishing charter?

Just about all fishing charter boats can/will accommodate (and the Coast Guard allows) up to 6 passengers (fishing or not). This is the license capacity for private fishing charters, and is standard in the industry unless you are going out on a 'head boat' - or a public charter.

What are the chances of catching fish?

The chance of catching fish is really good, but you might want to let the captain know what your goals are. You might want to think about mixing in some "for sure" fishing for fun with some hunting for a harder to catch species of fish. However you go about it, you can be sure that your captain/crew will go all out to catch fish.
