Anglers can have the best time of their lives if they choose to spend some time on a charter boat on some of the prime locations for prised fish, like trout, Mackerel, Tuna and Jewfish, among a host of others. If you’re really lucky you could end up catching a marlin too. Some of the best in the holiday business have bases in a lot of countries so that you can catch exotic species as well.
Booking a charter trip does not come cheap, considering the amenities you are entitled to. So it makes sense to plan ahead and save up a bit so that you can fully enjoy the uninhibited pleasures of fishing on the open waters while on fishing tours.
There are two types of charters, deep sea charters and offshore ones. The difference lies in the fish that will be available at these locations. While deep sea charters will normally yield larger prey, like marlins and sharks, offshore ones usually haul in smaller catches. If you’re on shared fishing charters, make sure that you rope in the other members to pool in a reasonable tip for the hard work of the boatmen. They will appreciate it and remember you for it, and you can definitely expect a warmer welcome the next time you visit. Besides this, if you are also a photography enthusiast, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to go clicking.
The boats are handled by well drilled professional seamen. They are ready and able to handle any emergency or lend a helping hand to reel in a big catch. There are drink and food on board so that you can refresh yourself. Often, if requested, the captain of the boat will take you to places of interest that would have been inaccessible without a boat.
You’ll find the hands on desk very useful as they sweat it out to rig the sails, change the bait and pull the huge monster out of the water with their strong hands and sure fingers. They also help in cleaning your catch efficiently, so if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, you can choose not to. Just give them a friendly tip and they will be more than pleased. Their work does not end as soon as you disembark. The men in charge of the boat clean it and make sure that it is seaworthy for the next trip before calling it a day. They will also prepare the vessels for the day’s trip, all tailored to your pleasure.
