Hi. My cousin and her husband are planning a trip to Florida in August to visit and to do some fishing. My wife and I would like to go with. In all four of us would each like to pay around $60 or less. Within the group is one seasoned angler and three novices (myself included). Nobody has any sea fishing experience. Any advice on what kind of trip would be best and any info about group charters which may cut the cost or great deals for summer private guides?
Last Summer, in late July my son and I went out in the Marathon Lady, a headboat out of Marathon Key. We had a great time and caught a bunch of fish. Yellowtail snappers, Mahogany snappers and keywest grunt. We went out on a night trip from 6:00pm to 12:00am. It only cost about $35 and they provided the bait. You could rent a pole. Have a good time. Their website is http://fishfloridakeys.com/marathonlady/
