Charter and Guide Reviews
We just had a great weekend of Sailfishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The weather was perfect over the last five days, sun shinning and calm seas. There is a 2 to 3 foot swell off Fort Lauderdale, and no heavy winds, the average wind off Ft. Lauderdale has been 10 mph to 14 mph.

The redfishing is really hot in the texas bays. North winds have pushed the water out of the bays and the redfish have responded by coming of the flats and biting in the deeper water. I look for big catches of redfish in the next couble of days and as long as the north wind is prevailing it will continue.
I was the charter master on the recent Qualifier 105 trip and want to share our story. Our scheduled departure was on September 2, and all thought and discussion was about was Hurricane John raging up the
. I fielded a dozen calls and emails before the trip and I know the Q-Girls at the Qualifier office, Vicki and Erica, did the same. We tired to assure our anglers that the storm would most likely dissipate when it hit cooler water, that Captain John Klein had the latest state of the art weather and communications technology and would never put his passengers, crew or his large investment, (aka, boat), or his children’s father in harm’s way.
First, do your research. What you want to catch dictates were you want to go and fish. Once you decide where you want to go, find out what charter boats are in the area. Read magazines, get on line and put some time in to find out all you can about your options. When you have a couple of possibilities, call them up, drop them an email, ask them questions, not just how much is it? but what is the best time to come? What fish are in season? What type of tackle do you have on board and in what classes? Can the weather stop you going out? Do you fish under IGFA Rules? Is the skipper an IGFA Certified Captain? What about beginners? Can you put me in touch with a couple of previous clients? What types of fishing can you offer?
