Some friends of mine want a Gulfstream trip next Saturday, October 14th. Really need two people to cover cost. Cost share would be $295 without Mate's Gratuity and Fish Cleaning Services. Target fish would be Tuna (Yellowfin and Blackfin) plus Dolphin. Best deal in town. Fishing out of OBX Marina on the STOLAT. Send PM as soon as possible.

I understand, but my question is how many people will be fishing

6 people will be fishing. However there may be some confusion about how an Offshore Charter works. The fishing method is primarily Trolling. Trolling is done by setting up between 6 and 10 rods in a trolling spread towing either rigged Ballyhoo baits or artificial lures. Nobody holds a rod or is assigned a specific rod. Based on a pre-arranged rotation, each of the six anglers take turns in that rotation pulling in fish. Sometimes several fish will "Strike" at once, sometimes it's one at a time. To be honest, on an exceptionally slow day each person may only touch a rod once during the trip. More often it's more productive than that. I hope that explains it.

That's a good deal, if it was in the middle of the summer I would do it but inshore fishing is so good right now I don't want to miss out on any of the action, hope you guys do well
