Port canaveral party boat charter question

So my dad wants to take my grandfather out on one of those big group charter boats, 70$ a person, they take you out and I'm guessing you drop some squid and catch random fish, no targeted species. I've never been, but I was wondering if I went out with them and brought my own rig with some jigs or something, if I could actually produce decent fish like black fins or something better then some small random bottom fish. I'd assume they drop anchor and don't troll because of the number of people, but I figured it might be worth the trip of course to spend time with them, but to also target a certain species. I've never been offshor on th east coast, so I don't know what to expect, but I'd love som sushi

    Black fins are really hit or miss. I used to be on the miss cape a lot before they went out of business and in 4 years or so I only saw a handful of blackfins and all were in the February time frame. Taking a spinner with a light knocker rig and some fresh (live if you can get it) small pinfish and you should be able to whack some snapper.
