Albies/bonitos charter

Rate this topic

21 posts in this topic

Some of the fly fishing guides out in montauk will do three and maybe 4 man charters to fish spinning tackle. You could give them a try but they get pretty booked up this time of year.  I'm not sure of anyone that does it locally (meaning nassau/suffolk border .. jones /debs).  You want a smaller boat to chase them down .. especially the albies.

WOW

$475 + tip  for 4hrs, for 1  or 2 persons

With a gas, bottle of water and maybe a snack comes to close to $600; even f I find someone to split it, still $300 for 4hrs

my sister has dated a few tarpon guides and these guys aim for around $1000 a day for 4pack.

I messed up, should have taken $75k out for a boat instead of college.

Cheap compared to owning your own boat.

 

I figure that I'm out about $15,000 each year before I even put it into the water.  

 

And that doesn't count the original cost of the boat, lost investment opportunities on the money spent, seasonal maintenance, fuel, the repairs that inevitably pop up every season, etc.

 

A big piece of that $475 is eaten by overhead.

Capt Dave is a good friend of mine, worked with him for a few years. Excellent guide burning not sure if his boat is equipped for more than 3 people. I'd absolutrly give him a buzz though.

People fail to realize the cost of running a charter. Fuel is expensive. Boat maintenence is expensive. Research and scouting is expensive. The guide is putting you on spots he knows there will be fish. Smaller guides wanna be sure you have a good time and will goe head over heels trying to put you on fish.

I understand that

I am not disputing any of those

I just simply stated that those prices are out of my reach.

No offense intended btw. Its just smaller charters will always be a little pricey (if its a quality charter). I have a full day scheduled with him in October for blackfish/albies. Great time.
