Planning a fishing trip for four dudes in late Aug/early Sept. Would like to stay in the Gieger Key / Stock Island area this time. Going to take Piner's advice (and many others') and pony up for a bigger rental boat than what we've rented in the past, but I can't get over how much more expensive boats are around Key West vs. marathon (all aboard / vacation, etc.) or heck even Cudjoe (pro gear). There also doesn't appear to be many rental co's in general at the southern tip.
Any recommendations on where I can find a reliable 27ish foot plus fishing boat for a reasonable price?
do yourself a favor & just rent Piner
probably same $$ and catch fish ! !
