Party boats range is size and scope. Some target only fluke. Some target blues and bass. Still others will mix it up and take advantage of the seasonal fish migrations and may fish for several species during the same day. Some of these boats take as many as one hundred passengers on fishing trips. The charge per adult passenger ranges from 20 dollars to 60 dollars. Most boats have a cheaper rate for children and seniors. Boats leave at six, seven, and eight in the morning, and at midnight.
The number of party boats working the Atlantic Ocean has been in the decline for the last 10 years. The reasons for the decline are varied. Downturns in the economy, poor fish stocks, more stringent rules and regulations as well as the fact that many of the youths of the current generation were never exposed to the wonderful sport of fishing. Another problem is parking. Plan on getting there a couple hours early so you can aquire a parking spot you don't want to be left standing on the dock.
