    If you are not already in contact with the big bad bob I can put you in touch, if he has no plans of a loopy trip at least he should know of the local charters.

    One big issue it seems with these expeditions is you're totally at the mercy of the weather. Even if you crossed off ten days, there's still no guarantee you'll be able to give it a proper go.

    Last BF charterboat I was doing some work on was charging $280 per hour + GST (minimum charter 48 hours) but that has since changed hands and that was 3 years ago.
    That was for up to 6 fisherman per party

    wait till you get one on a handline. we tried to get one when I was on a deep sea factory trawler , idea was to hook it on a handline rope with several floats on the end and chase it down with the zed boat even the mfish people onboard where keen .lasted all of 10 seconds over 100m of rope and line pulled out didn't even get the floats in the water and it had snapped the line that's when we realised we where dreaming fish would have been fairly well north of 200kgs and not a hope in hell of catching it but it was impressive watching 20 or 30 very large fish blasting past the boat grabbing fish that had fallen out or where sticking out of the trawl. like to see one caught in person not sure I want to be the sucker on the end of a rod for 6 hours trying to land it though.
