Bait and Guide for My Boat Offshore in May. Key West/Stock Island

So I finally did it. Left the boat in Key West/ Stock Island (Oceanside Marina) for the winter. Haven't made it back down yet, but have plans for April and May to come down with a couple buddies. So wondering about buying live bait and also a guide that will go offshore with us and teach us the ropes for a day (After dolphin & Blackfin Tuna) The boat is a 2007 Wellcraft Coastal 290 and in great shape. Have I done quite a lot of fishing in the keys, but mostly off Big Pine. Any advice would be a real help!

    Try Bruce Cronin. He and I used to guide together and he is still in the business and still keeps his boat at Oceanside. He'll be good for things like yellowtail and offshore. Have no clue what he would charge you in your boat.

    Thanks, I'll try to find him. Thanks! Any advice on tackle shop/ live bait boats?
