    Trying to decide between a few boats for the end of the month or first week in October. Looking at an overnight or 1.5 day

    1.5 Pacific Queen will be a full load of 33 people.
    1.5 on the Sea Adventure 80, only 2 people signed up so far for 3.
    Overnight on the Constitution 18/25 spots available.
    1.5 on the Relentless, mid October no one is booked.

    I like to throw jigs and poppers as much as I enjoy fishing bait. Don't mind fishing with a full load but prefer a comfortable, clean, well ran boat.

    Any recommendations on a boat and why?

    If it's a weekday that late in the season, don't worry about the load. There won't be that many Anglers still fishing to crowd any of the boats.

    Pac Queen has an awesome reputation and I wouldn't hesitate to fish that boat ever. The Constitution I've heard good things about and they know how to catch the big ones as they target them part of the year in PV. I don't know anything about the other 2 boats you mentioned.

    But if you can go weekdays you should check out the 2 day charter I have on the pride Sep 25-27th. It's limited to 15 anglers (and may go with as few as 12) and there's a good chance we limit of YFT the first day and have another night/morning to go fish either BFT, the banks, or whatever else may be biting.

    Tomahawk. PQ gets my vote but fishing with 33 hurts.

    All good choices. Our group does 5 - 2 1/2 days with the Relentless and love the operation. I would fish any of the boats mentioned.

    of your list? Pac Queen would get my nod on a 1.5 day. Good rep for a reason.....…...and fishy.

    Good, Kyle takes a lot of pride in his dishes. Basics plus little surprises. Works w/ special diet needs without a hitch too.
