I had a wonderful 5 hour charter this past Thursday in NH. I know some folks don't really like the concept of using charters to help them get species on the life list, but it truly was an amazing experience. I also will say all the charter captain did was set the boat up for the drift. I liked it that we all baited our own hooks, casted, held our rods, set the drag etc etc... captain handled the boat only - which did make me feel like I made the catch. Worked my butt off, but my single fished made the effort all worthwhile! I know the species can get far larger but I was pretty thrilled with it.
The entire trip write up is on my blog (www.coolwaterfish.com), but if you just want to see it... here it is;
