There moor guys that do charge a lot to go fishing don't use the right stuff can't tie the right knots . Don't know how to properly rig the equipment. Use the rod they get a discount on instead of the right one . I see this a lot and that includes some of the captions the others on this sight recommend. I not saying they can't catch fish but how much better it can be if they did it right
The only time that I use a charter is for the Tortugas, I don't feel like putting in the time or burning the fuel required to find all of the good spots to fish.
