    Looking for somewhere coastal in lower 48 in the month of June through mid July for salt water fishing.
    Good fishing, charters, etc? Tell me where you would go.

    Interested also! Especially references for Virginia Beach or Venice, LA? Both on my "bucket list". :)

    I shoot pool with a couple that go to Florida offshore fishing every year and they seem to do pretty well... Let me know if you want me to get some contact info

    Ripp's Inland Charters in Barataria, Louisiana. Redfish and Speckled Trout in the Gulf.

    I fished with Greg Abbott out of Sarasota, FL, a couple of years ago and had a great time. He and his son are also avid deer hunters and they couldn't believe the pictures of the big Iowa deer that I was showing him. So that made it even more fun. 941-302-4734 is the number I have for him.

    Can't help you out with lower 48 but we just got back from a deep sea fishing adventure in Mexico and it was a great time..........for the ones that didn't get sea sick. Early June down there would be prime time for sailfish and mahi mahi.

Accomadations are pretty basic and there isn’t much else to do there. I go every October when it is a little cooler. PM me if you want more details

    I echo this if you can swing it. Cabos, Ixtapa, or even further down in South America

    If I was going in the US it would be the Keys so I could do some inland and offshore stuff.

    I'd also be looking at the Keys. If you're after redfish, then Venice, LA or Laguna Madre in Texas is good. If it were me, though, I'd be grabbing my 8 and 9 wt fly rods and be heading to Cancun to fish Isla Blanca. There are tarpon, bonefish, snook, and Jack Crevalle in season all summer down there. And there are the barracuda, too. Caught my first tarpon 7 years ago this coming June down there.

    Oregon Inlet, NC. Being from NC, always a very good chance at yellowfin tuna. Look up some of the past reports from the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. Plus it is a relatively short ride (less than 2 hours) from the gulfstream. One of the closest points to the gulfstream on the whole east coast.
