Of course an industry is stronger after it has been gifted a public trust resource STOLEN from the Gulf recreational fishermen - the Gulf Council gave the for-hire sector about double what they should have based on bogus data going back to 1986! It's a house of cards that is going to fall.

Capt. Tom.... how about posting your Charter business in your sig? If you stand by your stance, of course.

I'm a guy who will take a charter from time to time. I'd like to know who you are.

Default Its hard to find a great guide online

Hey guys, I'm a college student at Indiana University in a business competition who is passionate about improving the search for great fishing captains. I want to make sure anglers always have great experience out on the water. I've been doing research with buddies up here and in FL, but am looking for more feedback about how anglers search for captains/charters from the greater group of Florida fishers. If you want to help out, the Google Form survey below asks 6 questions about how anglers search online. I promise it's not a scam, just a college student looking to learn.

Hi Jim, I'm glad you're doing well. I just want to see anglers interested in fishing with a guide/captain have more information before they make a booking unlike some of the booking sites out there that are focused on just helping people find a trip with a captain, instead of helping anglers find a great trip they're confident about booking, with a captain they're excited to meet and learn from. I also want to help out captains who don't want to jump through all the hoops of advertising their business on google, or spend a lot of time managing their schedule and talking on the phone, and just want to share their passion for fishing with people who want to learn, while scaling their guiding/charter business if they want along the way. I always like to bounce ideas around and learn from other's experiences, please don't hesitate to PM me and we can exchange numbers.
