It’s Your Charter
For those who do not get a chance to fish on the ocean often or anglers who would like to hone their skills, chartering a boat is an investment in one’s future on the water. However, are you really hiring the boat or the Captain?
There are lots of boats out there who will take you out on the water for a day or two. But it’s the captain who will make your trip a successful one. A good Captain does his homework, finds the fish, is fun to fish with, and brings you back safely. When choosing a boat, sure check out the boat, get reviews from others, but check into the captain and crew too. They’ll either make or break your day.
