This has been one of the best family experiences so far. You should ask for Frankie, he’s the best. Great experience and he will accommodate your needs to the experience.

Day started slowly with some small fish but Capt Frankie took us to the prime spot and I hooked and landed a 30 lb tarpon. His guidance was critical to me getting that fish on the boat. Would highly recommend Bayside Charters.
