A couple of weeks ago, I went on a party fishing boat in Provincetown. I took our friend Mark - he LOVED it. They took us for stripers and blues...we managed to catch sharks. And only sharks. One kid caught a pretty awesome fish that looked like a sea carp. Very cool.
Party fishing boats are a "reel" blast if you allow yourself to accept that (a) the gear is not yours and (b) the guy running the gig knows it all.
We went out for 1/2 day. It was $35.00 a head and they provided the bait, rods and reels, and sodas for a buck. For the money and time, it was fun!
When I was a kid, we did the party boats out of New London, CT. The one we took was called the Mijoy. I believe that they are still in operation today!
Next time you're planning a fishing gig for the family or time out at sea with friends, think about a party boat. Totally fun and reasonable!
