I have most definately tried the shore lunch and it makes me
. In fact each time we have visited AC, we have made sure that one of our fishing days has the shore lunch and I will also make sure I do it again this time. It is definately something I would recommend to anyone who hires a guide.
As far as out on our own, we would only stick to the flats fishing, we have a GPS and are both experienced boaters (with my husband having ocean experience as well). We also wouldn't rent our own boat until after at least two trips with a guide to refamilarize ourselves with the water. However, I can understand why most places would not want to rent boats to tourists. That is why I thought I would check here, to see if there is even a possiblitly.
Hilly boo, I will keep that name and check 'im out when I get there.
Thank you both for the information.
