I get sea sick pretty easy - will this one make me sea sick?
If you're prone to sea sickness, we'd recommend an inshore fishing trip. The distance is less than 2 miles from shore, greatly limiting the risk for sea sickness. You'll be good to go! iTREKKERS By Ben B. on July 17
Just looking to see what adventures might be nice for my husband to do on Fathers' Day
Awesome! We love taking fathers out for their big day. We'd recommend Inshore Fishing, or Deep Sea Fishing. Inshore if it's his first time, or deep sea if he's an experienced angler! iTREKKERS By Ben B. on July 17
What type of waters do you fish in?
We fish in the Tampa bay and in the channel downtown. iTREKKERS By Peter P. on July 14
