any liveaboards fish for a living?
i wanted to fish off a 25 foot sailboat and get like maybe 100-200$ a day...anyone know if this is possible? im also confused about the commercial fishing license; from what i've read, it seem you need to register your boat also as a commercial fishing boat? how does this work? do i pay more on top of the 126$ per year commercial license?
i want to catch albacore as my main fish, so any help would be appreciated.
i know i've asked something like this before, but didn't get a decent answer on the license issue.
so my requirements are simple..
fish for 100-200$ worth of fish per day, and be able to sell them.
im thinking albacore tuna since they fetch a nice price. what do you guys think? is this a pipe dream? or can this be turned into reality? ill have minimal expenses since the boat is only going to be 25 feet, and will be sail powered.
Also, if albacore isnt your recommended fish, then what fish would you recommend i catch to meet that 100-200$ mark per day?....from what i know, albacore is year rounds down here, so im hoping this will work.
Also, whats teh average going rate per pound of albacore at the wholesellers in the fishing harbors? 2$ a pound? less more?
