You are hiring a boat not buying a seat at the movies.
If there is bait involved your 4 hour trip is a easy 10 hours of work. The only deal you may get is a extra hour.

I think that is a great question, there should be a discount for one angler. Especially for the poling captain sight fishing. I would rather have one guy in my boat. The boat is lighter, more quiet (the guy waiting his turn to fish likes to slam the cooler or something), and it is easier to focus on one anglers skill set. 6 hours is a long time to drive to the boat ramp, catch bait, drive home, and wash the boat. Thanks

are there any guides in Englewood or port charlotte that have one angler deals?

Vern, sorry you are getting beat up for a reasonable question. Your best bet is to call the charter company and see if they would take a solo angler on a split charter. Some companies will do this but others will not.

Agree. Some of these so called guides are getting bent out of shape over a question, that to me was asked perfectly but written or worded wrong. The guys that responded trying to justify themselves on why they ask top dollar for a trip whether it be 1-4 persons on their boats because of travel time, bait time, or just boat time are the ones who should step back and re-evaluate their reason for guiding.
Disclaimer: I do not guide anymore
All I am saying is if I had next Tuesday open and I had a party of 3 who inquired who had never fished before wanted to drink some beers and maybe catch a fish or two or I had a single person looking to learn the area and fish with me. I would take the later every time. Instead of a 600-700 dollar circus trip I would gladly take a 400 dollar guiding and teaching experience.
It Is a business, a lifestyle, and income for that person.
