I HAVE FISHED THE CHOCOLATE BAY AREA FOR 30 YEARS, AND COLETO CREEK RESERVOIR FOR 3 YEARS, I PLEDGE TO DO MY BEST TO PUT YOU ON THE FISH, IF YOU ARE NEW TO FISHING, OR NEVER CAUGHT FISH ON LURES, I WOULD LOVE TO TEACH YOU HOW TO CATCH FISH USING LURES ALONE, BUT IF YOU ENJOY FISHING WITH SHRIMP, AND IT IS AVAILABLE, IT IS USUALLY AROUND $20-$25 A QUART AND I HAVE A LIVEWELL AVAILABLE. I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE BOTH ENJOYABLE, AND MEMORABLE! CHOCOLATE BAY/BAYOU, AREA FISHING IS SIMILAR TO FISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS/MANGROVES, WITHOUT THE GIN CLEAR WATER, WE WADE FOR SPECKS UP TO WAIST DEEP, OR SIGHT FISH FOR REDFISH IN SHIN DEEP WATER! DURING THE WINTER, WE EITHER WADE FOR TROPHY TROUT, OR FISH FROM THE BOAT FOR DEEP WATER FISH.
