Once you've been on private boats, it's hard to go back to the cattle boats. That tarpon quest via fly is just a whim. I learned with my brothers and dad on a father's day outing several years ago, but little brook trout don't seem to measure up, at least to the videos.
It is somewhat true depending on what kind of boat and what you are fishing for. I have been fishing on my friend's 39' Tiara boat since last year. We had to spend a lot of time preparing for food/tackles/etc...and cleaning up before and after every trip. It is getting a little tired and some trips we would only catch few fish. Certainly different experience and it is not for everyone, especially when we are talking about the fuel cost and maintenance on such boats.

Party/castle boats are good if all you want to do is to catch fish. Only downside is the bunk beds are small on most of these boats.

I went out with 3 trips on party boats this year and caught 4 bluefins already. Been very happy. The friend I am going out on his boat with does not have experience looking for these BFT, but I know he wants them bad. Trying to help him land on one on his own boat.

Does dynamite over the side count as sport?

That's more like "catching" than fishing...

Hello. Since childhood, I fell in love with sport fishing. My grandfather awakened this love of fishing in me, he taught me this business when I was six years old. Every morning we woke up and went on a boat and fish, very often we stayed overnight and played in Jenga, not just Jenga, but in a giant jenga game.

Dorado from south of Cancun last year and the other is a 64 lb Halibut from Washington's coast.

I also chase Albacore, salmon, ling's and rockfish around here.

I have done fishing on my kayak boat but it is only good for medium-sized fishes. As compared to fishing, I am a great fan of underwater fun. Though I am good swimming but to teach swimming to my kids, I am thinking to get this Sublue underwater scooter from here https://trueform.io/products/sublue-...era-compatible.





Hopefully, it would be a great choice to see marine life closely. Have any of you tried this underwater scooter?
