Default Tuna fishing - anyone want to tag along?

So I tuna fish as much as I can. If anyone’s interested in coming, and will pay for fuel, you’re welcome to come along.

Pm with interest/questions.

You may get more replies if you mention where you are out of, where you are going, what boat you have, what gear you have, what experience you have, and what to expect to contribute for fuel.
Good luck and tight lines.

I would think it falls under a group of buddies sharing cost for a recreational fishing trip. Guys do it everyday on the docks.

Would definitely help to know where you run from, what type of boat and how much fuel do you typically burn on a tuna trip.

So I’m out of Boston area.

I have a 23’ Grady with a 350 suzuki, EPIRB, life raft, outriggers, radar etc..

I have some 130s and 50 standups too.

I typically hit stellwagon bank and burn about 50 gallons round trip (50 x 3$ gallon about $150).

no drugs on board. Beers are cool.

I think that is a pretty cool offer as well....why the Googan shout out from florida? Remember when fishing was about comeraderie and having fun? Good for you Doc!

I'm out of Boston too. My son and I caught our first last year, and hope to be so lucky again this season. We take our Parker out on the bank whenever we can, and can be found on 68 if you need anything out there...TGIFishing.

Good luck to you!

Not positive but I don't think you can require someone to pay for fuel. I think it has to be voluntary and you all split the costs. Else it may be construed as fishing for hire.

From the USCG:

Q: Sometimes I take passengers on charter fishing trips on my vessel. Do I need a license?


A: You need a Coast Guard license if you carry even one passenger for hire [who provides consideration] on your vessel . . If a vessel carries just one individual passenger, or “hop on,” who provides anything more than a voluntary sharing of the actual cost of the trip, the vessel is operating as a passenger vessel and requires a Coast Guard licensed operator.

When you look at the Federal regs,

"Consideration" means: an economic benefit, inducement, right, or profit including pecuniary payment accruing to an individual, person, or entity, but not including a voluntary sharing of the actual expenses of the voyage, by monetary contribution or donation of fuel, food, beverage, or other supplies.

"Passenger for hire" means a passenger for whom consideration is contributed as a condition of carriage on the vessel, whether directly or indirectly flowing to the owner, charterer, operator, agent, or any other person having an interest in the vessel.
As to the OP, very generous and nice offer of you to make. I hope you find some takers, I would offer to go out aside you in my Grady as a buddy boat but I am way too far away.
