    Why So Many 2 Day Trips Instead of 2.5 Day Trips This Fall?!?

    I didn't say 1 day trips, The thread is about 2.5 days. No shit, nobody wants to leave at noon for an overnight trip! Also L.R. boats usually turn around in 2-3 hrs, I've been on a L.R trip when they turned in in just over 1 hour.

    3.5% service charge on Excel if you use CC?

    No, They would raise it to around 10%, After everybody takes their cut (city taxes,port fees,bait company,etc) then the landing or boat would get appx 3% of that 10% after it is cut up. that 3% is separate and does not get divided up. That's why they charge it separate fee and don't include it...

    3.5% service charge on Excel if you use CC?

    3.5% service charge on Excel if you use CC?

    Why So Many 2 Day Trips Instead of 2.5 Day Trips This Fall?!?

    What about the 2.5 day boats that get in the morning and turn around a leave again at noon, 2pm whatever. Their not losing any days or money if they keep running back to back trips. Do you think long range boats lose money, when they get in early and leave the same day?

    Why drive away, That cost money when you travel (extra fuel burnt). Some boats only care about the fish count. The fish report usually doesn't state the size and if you ask the landing, You get the same old 18-20lbs with a few smaller ones in the mix, and it's mostly YFT.
