I had initially requested a sheepshead/Tautog ...Read More CCBT trip but admittedly didn’t know the Cobia season dates as I’m typically only creek fishing on a kayak. Capt. Jay was willing to go further than the typical half day trip in hopes of landing a Cobia and we got one that he spotted from the tower. Along with a couple Spanish and an albie we had an awesome day and would definitely recommend/will be booking again in the future.

In short, we had a blast!!! Capt. Jay put 4 cobias and 9 spanish mackerels on the boat. I would definately book again with First Landing Charters for the next trip. Boat was in great shape, equipment was new, plenty of bait and lures, and weather could not have been ...Read More any better. I got to learn a lot about how to fish for both species we caught and next time I go out on my boat I know what to do to be successful. I would definitely recomend these guys to anyone that want to catch some fish and have a good time.
