Open Boats(shared Charters)

At times, I put together open boats where people join the charters singly or in pairs.  I typically run these trips with four people, but sometimes less, sometimes I will go to five if the weather is very good.  I post these trips on my Facebook page (in the discussion area) and/or in the Events section.  The good thing about the open boats is that you don’t have to coordinate any other people.  Many of my customers who fish on party boats like this option.  They fish solo, but don’t want the “elbow to elbow” crowds, the inattentiveness (tangles), or the perceived rudeness of those crowds.

Open Boat Rates:

Groundfishing:  $300

Tuna: $450 if there is three people or $400 if there are 4.

Sharks: $400

Nantucket Shoals Giant Fluke: $400

Really, I could talk all day….  I get thinking in the winter what I can do on the boat and it’s a downward spiral.  The last couple of years I have a flip flop on the “what’s my best day on the water” thought…  Tuna does come to mind…Is it the crazy run+gun, looking for busting fish?  Is it the Wicked Tuna style of fishing with the big rods, looking for giant tuna… One is 100% adrenaline.  The other is 100% anticipation….I love them both.  The good thing about giant tuna fishing is that you can do it in much worse weather because you’re just drifting.  It’s good to have options.




I will be doing more on these media this moving forward.  With this media, if I say “I need two people for tomorrow”, it may be your best way to find out quickly.  So, keep following me.  When the bite is hot, you want to know that you can get on a boat!
