Deep Sea Fishing on a Dime

So you've done lots of activities on the beach. Looking for something new? How about giving deep sea fishing a try? I know you are thinking that deep sea fishing is expensive! and yes, sometimes it is, but we have found several ways to deep sea fish and not break the bank. Private charters can cost you $500-$800 a day, which is ok if you have lots of people to help share the cost, but if you are here with a small group, how can you justify that much to go fishing? I am not knocking private charters....because sometimes that is what we use (when we have a large cost-sharing group), but it just isn't affordable for everyone.
When we first moved here, I wanted my husband to experience everything on the beach. Fishing included. I started looking through all of the companies to find a great deal that fit in our very tight budget. Here is what I found: Large boats offer great deals on deep sea fishing for a fraction of the cost. They also throw in food sometimes or sell food on board. They also include your fishing gear, bait, license, etc.
