You need to ask him about the area he fishes. Here on the gulf, our season is May thru July. I go up to the Homosassa area April 15 and come back the 1st of July. Then I fish the Tampa Bay area beaches in July and part of August.
In the Keys they have a much larger season, almost all year actually. I go to the Keys in March for a few weeks to bonefish and there are a lot of small tarpon there then. I don't really care about the smaller fish, I'm spoiled.
Good Luck, Mel
