Default Does anyone know of a flounder gigging charter that can handle 7 people?

It may not exist, but does anyone know of a flounder gigging or bowfishing charter in the Pensacola area (or nearby, like Destin) that could do 7 people? I've Googled a ton, but it seems most max out at 4 or 5. Two of the people would be children (well-behaved children! 10 and 12) if it makes any difference. I realize 7 people trying to gig or bowfish would be unwieldly and everyone wouldn't be able to do it at once, but it's mainly about everyone wanting to be there for the experience.

If anyone knows one that could do it, I would appreciate it.

It's also to late in the season for gigging. The flounder have moved to the undisclosed mating areas. This summer they will be back.

No. Because the max passenger capacity for someone working with a OUPV (Operator Uninspected Passenger Vessel) "captain's license" is 6... to legally take any more paying passengers, they would have to have a higher class license, as well as be a CG inspected vessel.

Pretty much, no. Not going to happen.

However you could split your party up between 2 vessels... it makes for a fun competition.

I thought there was a guy with his 100 ton that just built out a pontoon for this purpose?

That many people on one boat floundering sounds not fun. I like the idea of 2 boats and a friendly competition!
