Caveat emptor, “Let the Buyer Beware” this phrase originally applied to real estate, but now extends beyond legal documents to just about all forms of transactions, meaning, there's no legal requirement for the vendor to provide a refund if you're not happy with their service. Hiring a professional guide or charter is one of those cases where you're literally rolling the dice on the kind of service--and day--you're going to have on the trip. Catching fish should be important, but spending a day on the water with a professional, whose concerns are your concerns, which means delivering a carefree, memorable day on the water, should come first . One way to ensuring that memorable day is by choosing one of the Featured Guides or Charters listed below, they're on the list for one of three reasons, we've used them for Florida Sportsman projects such as TV, they're regular contributors such as our Weekend Fishing 4Casters or Radio Show hosts, or they're advertising partners in the magazine. Don't forget to send us pictures from your trip.
