.....and it won't get shut down unless it turns into a circus. LOTS of good OBJECTIVE information here.........regardless of whether or not it benefits or hurts someones bottom line......it's what this website is about. I'll admit, I'm a Maximus fan. (have yet to ride the Constitution) I have been down there at least 10 times.......4 in one season! Always had a great time.....not cheap, but the crew worked hard and Keith always found the fish. And we were never "nickle and dimed". I started out riding with the "Fred and Erika" charters.....and when Johnny J started chartering, I jumped on with him. I would think that charters, especially regular charters, might get a few "perks" over and above the open trips, but not stuff like is being reported here. I'll certainly be having a discussion about it. (not that I can do anything about it, but I can ask) while it pains me to think that Keith has changed his operational "model" with his new boat.....especially this drastically, I'll just have to see how things really are when we go in February and make future plans accordingly. Oh yes, a full report will be posted.
