    I have been asked for a referral for an off shore chapter. They are looking for one of those party boats. I have never gone out on one. Anyone know of a decent one within 2 hour drive of Orlando?

    it's better for u to do it in the winter time (Nov thru Jan).....bring alot of FAT grouper and FAT snapper alot closer to the party boat. :)

    Right now, U are expecting Cobia, Maui Maui,  small snapper,  small grouper and spanish mackeral in this season but not always.......Orlando Princess is a great service with free breakfast and lunch (food is not bad) plus U can have 6 bheer on the boat standing next to the person tangle your line right next to your pole. ::) ::)

    If I were you, Get a Private Charter and Split with 6 people with money.....way better fishing in private charter than party boat. :-/

    IF you still want go to the party boat with your family or whatever....better to make a private reservation for back of the boat (more room and less hassle with your line). ;)

    Its not for me. Its for a work buddy's family member who is in from Ireland. He is here for a short time and he is the only one going. The irony is that I offer to take him out on the Lagoon Saturday. For free and he passed. Guy must like his party boats.

    There is a pretty reputable one here in St Augustine and they're cheap (like $80 + tip) for a full day. I was thinking it might even be fun to get some of the microskiff crowd to get together and go out on one one afternoon for some beers/and bottom fishing for the heck of it. Meet and greet kind of a thing. Let someone else drive the boat ya know.

    Tom, since you have Clearwater listed check into Hubbards
    Marina @ Johns Pass, Maderia Beach. They run everything
    from half day to overnight 36+ hour trips....Prices are up w/
    fuel like it is but crowds are down with the economy so should
    have no trouble getting on a boat...Also less people off shore
    (and more inshore ::) ) and I hear fishing has been good...
    Good luck! Dave
