I say send them all somewhere else. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here. These are our fish. That quote from your post on page 10 of the Shut Down Thread had a way of rubbing alot of people wrong. (not sure why it was shut down but oh well) You also stated most of our customers drive down in the morning and leave that day. You wanted people to think the customers us out of towners bring to the beach don't spend money there that is so untrue. As I stated before most of my customers stay and eat at least two meals. I have been trying to take a conservative guess as to the number of hotel rooms payed for in VA Beach do to my business. At least 150. Do you think my customers do less to help the local economy than yours ? The economy of VA Beach is based on out of towners whether its fishing, vacationing attending a function at the Convention Center or whatever. I see where you were asked what your boat name was and what you charge but you have not answered. My Boat is the Anna Lynn and I get 650.00 for half day six people and get extra for every head over six. (Average 8 to 10 a trip) All of our prices are close to that. Now I have answered! What about the questions sent your way. Boat Name ? How much you charging for your trips captain ? Are you booked all summer ? How many years have you been a Captain ?
