Are you looking for a half a day or a full day? What type of fishing you want to do? What you have to do is put in a little bit of investigation work into it. Go online, use the phone book, find a bunch of charters and ask them questions. If you're a beginner, do you take out beginners? Do you have equip., do you go for this kind of a fish? If you're an experience fisherman and you want to target a certain species, ask the Captains, do you target this species? They come in all different price ranges, all different types of boats.
