    Full Day VS. Overnight

    Definitely overnight! For me it's just more fun. Getting to know others and hanging out before you hit the sack just adds to the overall experience.

    Which Long Range Boat and why?

    The Indy is one of the main boats i'm looking at. Only issue is I'm looking for a fall 8 day and they only run 7 & 10 day trips in the fall. Have you been on one of their 7 day fall trips? How many fishing days on average do you think you get on a 7 day?
