    Top shot for BFT

    I think I'm just going to go with 25yds fluoro to spectra on all the reels. Less knots, less re-tying with a short 6' fluoro, Better casting. It's a little more expensive. I just hope I don't get sawed offed to many times.

    What does "recovery" look like for the sporties?

    They need X amount of Crew per USCG Operating conditions on their Certificate. And Your correct that the boats don't make a lot of money, Even when there full. It's pretty simple,, Either raise the price to off set the reduction of passengers or go B.K.
