Charter Boats

A charter boat is a craft that can be rented by one or more anglers to fish for one day to one month or more. While party boats take customers on a first-come basis, a charter boat is for the exclusive use of the anglerslike a hired limousine compared to a city bus.

The size of a charter boat depends on the region, the species of fish involved, and the method of fishing. Charters on inland rivers and bays that fish for striped bass, redfish, snook, and tarpon with light saltwater outfits may be 20 feet or less and take just one to three anglers. Ocean charter boats that fish the same near-shore and offshore waters for those and other mid-size species such as grouper, bluefish, and cod generally run 20 to 30 feet in length and usually can take three to five anglers. Offshore charter boats that go for dolphin, king mackerel, tuna, and billfish run to 45 feet and longer, and can accommodate four to six or more paying customers.

Smaller charter boats may be owned by captains who make their boats available for charter on a part-time basis and use the boat for their personal fishing at other times.
