It was my second year in a row using Whitneys for bait and local information. Biggest shrimp on the island for sure. The shore bite was off a bit this year so I was really glad I booked a half day guided trip with Captain Nate! He worked me in and we had a great snook trip boating around 20 with 6 big ones! Nate had the bite dialed in and we were on fish early and often dragging a solid 35 inch fish from deep in the mangroves for pictures and release. From the first class boat and gear to the best tank of white bait I have ever seen, this guy came in ready for business. We fished trout together last year and this was just as fast but the fish were much larger. Explosive strikes in deep cover, long screaming runs and violent head shaking surface action. Highly recommend you give it a try. I am already planning next years trip. WHitney runs a first class shop. I fished for many species in 9 different states this year and this ranks as my new favorite!
