Our guide was pleasant, however we ordered a fishing trip we spent over 450$ for 6 people to simply travel around the marina area. Only two people in our party held a pole and we had to fish for bait. Total waste of money. The customer service was well however, just not the trip. My entire party was disappointed. 😔

I booked an afternoon charter 30 March 2016) and was told the bite should have been pretty good since the high tide was at 1:00 pm. I wanted to target tarpon (which I clearly expressed on the phone and via my comments on line). Turns out the tarpon are not very thick until the Summer months (it would be great if Bayside charters posted a fishing calender on their web page like many repretable guides throughout the world). Also, in this fishery the tides/current flow of water is not as important as I was lead to believe. I feel like I was miss lead and would have waited to book another time if I was informed of this. Captain Luis was nice and safe but only had a few live baits when he showed up for the charter. We spent a good bit of time trying to make bait as we had to go to two separate spots. Maybe this is standard but a 4 hour charter is too short to waste searching for bait, especially at multiple locations. We should have dead bait if the guide is unable to find enough live. Also, the equipment was not ready. Several of the leaders were frayed or too short from cutoffs during the morning charter. Also, Captain Luis seemed surprised when the boat did not have a cast net (it's not his boat and he did not check to see what was on the skiff prior to the charter). When a guide shows up without knowledge of what type of fishing the client desires, does not have adequate bait, and gear that requires re-rigging it smarts of laziness. We did catch several small snook and jumped a descent tarpon (which was nice). Also, even though the boat has no electronics or trolling motor I think the Carolina Skiff is a pretty safe boat with its higher gunnels for children. I hope this helps folks. Overall, this charter is best for families with children who do not fish very often. It will be a nice boat ride and you should be able to catch several smaller fish. Captain Luis speaks English fairly well and has a good disposition for children as he is a father. I recommend going out in morning when it is a little cooler. The bite is usually better plus you won't have to deal with possibility of inclimate weather as much.
