chad403 (21/04/2010)What were you expecting for 50 dollars?
I would have expected to catch some fish.I've gone on many $50 party boats out of the Moorings on Pcola bch and several out of Destin and have always had a great time and came home with at least as much fish as I could have bought for $50, even when Snapper was out of season.Things may have changed since then, I have not chartered a boat since I bought my first one 20 something years ago.

Sorry to hear you had a bad day, but I don't see how being on the water on your day off could be worse then working.

SLQFisher, maybe you and your buddies should have gone to work instead of taking a day off!!!!
I believe it was a sign saying you are weekend fisherman and to get used to it!


Hold up gallery, just a little humor to the poster who I happen to know.

What do you get for 50 bucks....

I get a fishing trip. Just what I would pay for, if we throw in 11 people we get a fishing trip to the same place, the issue is the time ivested to FISH. I like to hang out with buddies! If we spent a day of riding around and 15 minutes total to fish.... I would make sure his name was given since I paid for the right to openly discuss my adventure and his preformance.

I had a trip like that once... well we never left the dock actually..... we booked the trip, everyone came down for it, bought food and goodies, license and ice, some clothing to show off and all were at the Dock at 530am sharp! After they drove in from Alabama the day before to go rushed to do it all, this wonderful Captain gave us the NEWS at the dock as we stood to board! "Sorry Guys I somehow Double Booked!" Seems his faithful crew and regulars showed up!

Pasco Gibson remember that!

Please don't tell me you really think this is the math for that charter for a year.

Sounds like they wanted your money more than they wanted you to get what you paid for! They set the price and they should have done a better job at providing you with atleast a trash fish. I went out several times last week and ruby lips, trigge3r, snapper, and scamp were biting pretty regular. Only suggestion I have is in the future, use the forum and get the feed back for a great trip! The Destin charter sounds like a lot5 more fun to me. I am sure the scenery is probably better too.
