I am confused. Are the local fisherman suppose to be the people who pay hundreds of dollars to go offshore fishing even when we own boats? I know when I go to Florida and Alabama I have no problem paying someone to take me fishing because I do not know the good places to fish and it is easier to leave a 22′ Seafox at home instead of trailering it more than 100 miles from the house. Now granted chartering a boat from a local captain is great if I plan on having a business party or something like that but I do not think that I would pay money, when I own a boat, to go fishing every weekend. I believe that common sense is the key here. Watch the weather channel or channel 4, when you see a front a’proachin keep your donkey at home.
