I would go on a Chandelier trip as well. Most boats require a group of 6-8.

Maybe call Bobby, captain of VI, and ask if any groups need somebody

I went on the VI a few years ago, great trip. We go ran out due to storms, but our group had a great time anyway.

Had a good trip on VI last October. Woolybooger front hit so came back in third day but we already had boat maxed out on trout and reds. Went year before on Double Trouble, we didn't try to book again if that tells you anything.

If they're out fishing (which the good ones are out right now), you aren't likely to get a response until they hit the bank... No service out there on the boats other than satellite phone.

We are going to fish in LA after the CI trip and was hoping to get a week pass vs 3 day pass to cover entire time. Will a 7 day LA fishing license work?

I'm not 100% but I believe you could do that. I thought I read last year non res and a stamp would cover it

Tried emailing them in the past and never got any responses. I know the reviews are good but if you cant get a response before they have your money, I worry about after they have it.

Chandeleur's in the spring. You'll catch some big trout.
Gulf in the fall if you want yellowfin tuna and wahoo.
